New Porsche Design Watch Is For The Globetrotter In Your Life

In between launching a host of eye-catching vehicles, Porsche Design dabbles in a number of different things, including timepieces – and has just introduced its latest creation.

Dubbed the 1919 Globetimer UTC, Porsche Design’s latest watch is perfect for those that love international travel. Why? Well, a simple press of the crown will reset the arrow hand to show the local time no matter where you are in the world. If you cross multiple timezones on a long journey, the watch can be simply set to the correct half of the day thanks to an a.m./p.m. indicator.

A long-winded press release from the company (longer than some of its new car announcements) reveals that the watch uses titanium extensively in its construction and the case measures 42 mm. Not too big, not too small then, so it should fit most except those with extremely narrow wrists.

The timepiece also includes its own ball-borne, bidirectional winding rotor which builds a 38-hour power reserve. While testing the 1919 Globetimer UTC, Porsche subjects it to impact tests involving a blow equivalent to almost 5,000 the watch’s own weight. Additionally, each push-piece is designed to withstand at least 10,000 switching cycles.

Not too long ago, BMW introduced a selection of watches it co-developed with Fossil Group. Whereas those timepieces varied in price between $295 and $374, the Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC is a little more expensive. Prices in the U.S. start at $6,350 and go up to $31,500 for the rose gold model, while sales will commence at select retailers on September 2019.

    New Porsche Design Watch Is For The Globetrotter In Your Life

    Yeah, you need an unimaginative $7000 watch to travel abroad – because you can’t take a $100 Fossil watch on a plane, I guess.

    It’s not an article. It’s an advertisement.

      Then don’t buy it. Have you seen watch design in the last century? It’s a very slow evolving market. I’m sure your $100 dollar watch is just fine; just like how a Prius is just fine as well.
