Form follows function… This philosophy has consistently been important for Porsche Design’s DNA and this year’s curiosities actually bear this soul. While some may believe that Porsche Design is all the more a style brand than a watchmaker, the time has come to have a more critical glance at what the German plan studio is creating. Surely, the brand has more to show than simply shapes, as the new 1919 Globetimer UTC demonstrates.
Porsche Design is firmly connected to the vehicle maker it imparts its name to. Hence, it appears glaringly evident that the vast majority of the watches made by this studio are furnished with chronograph capacities – and not the most exceedingly terrible ones to be straightforward (take a gander at the Monobloc Actuator or the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback ).
Still, for Baselworld 2019, Porsche Design has chosen to zero in on another complication, absolutely perhaps the most helpful consistently: the traveller’s watch. And keeping in mind that it might have quite recently been a straightforward ETA module with GMT (as often found in this value range), the brand went for a restrictive module with common sense and ease of use in mind.
The new Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC is just about that offering a simple, quick and instinctive change of the nearby time when landing. By just pressing a catch (no compelling reason to haul the crown out) the nearby time is set. The brand has made a framework that permits setting the neighborhood time helpfully by the ergonomically-molded, ideally situated “+” and “- ” pushers, just as a day-night sign. This has been conceivable gratitude to a joint improvement between Porsche Design and Dubois-Depraz, explicitly for this watch.
