Porsche Design Creates the P 6920 Rattrapante Chronograph

Feb 17, 2009
The P´6920 Rattrapante Chronograph is a new sporty timepiece from Porsche Design. The highly masculine watch, equipped with a mechanical movement, will be unveiled at Baselworld 2009.

The P´6920 Rattrapante can measure intermediate times due to the split-second mechanism. First, the watch wearer has to start the chronograph by pressing the push-piece found at 2 o’clock and the two superimposed central seconds hands start to move.

When the watch wearer presses the push-piece on the left, the lower seconds hand stops, indicating the first intermediate time. When the push-piece on the left is pressed again, the first hand catches up with the second hand and continues moving in synchrony. The precision of the Rattrapante Chronograph is crowned with a COSC-certificate.

The dial of the Porsche Design watch is characterized by remarkable clarity and typography to guarantee perfect legibility. The black dial is embellished with honeycomb pattern. The dial is completed with rhodanised bar indices and Arabic numerals as well as white or gold skeleton triangular-tipped hour and minute hands coated with grey luminous material.

The 30-minute-counter is positioned at 12 o’clock, the 12-hour-counter at 6 o’clock, the small seconds at 9 o’clock and the date counter at 3 o’clock.

The black counters and the date indicator are accentuated by red and white. The black central seconds hand, responsible for the stop function, features the red tip, while the black fly-back hand, for the intermediate time, has a green tip.

The face of the watch is protected by a slightly cambered anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The bold case of the P´6920 Rattrapante Chronograph measures 45mm in diameter. It is crafted from titanium, highly appreciated by watchmakers for its lightness and corrosion-resistance. The titanium surface is PVD-coated for extra protection from external influences.

The new Porsche Design watch has been created in two versions – the first version completely in PVD-coated titanium and the second version in titanium with elements in classically elegant rose gold that nicely contrasts with the sporty design of the watch. Rose gold has been used for the bezel, crown and case back of the second version.

The screwed-down crown demonstrates clous de Paris decoration. The entire case construction is affixed with four screws. The three push-buttons, in black PVD-coated titanium, has been clearly inspired by the design of the pedals of a Porsche Carrera GT. The push-pieces have been designed to provide optimum grip.

The case back has a sapphire crystal window that reveals the Porsche Design rotor system and self-winding Valjoux 7750 movement.

The timepiece is 50-meter water-resistant.

The Porsche Design P´6920 Rattrapante Chronograph watch is secured to the wrist on a natural rubber strap fitted with a titanium-coated folding clasp.

The new Porsche Design watch will be available in a limited edition of 200 pieces in PVD-coated titanium and 50 pieces in titanium combined with rose gold. The timepiece will be available for sale starting with the last quarter of 2009.
