I know I won’t be parking one in my garage, and doubt one will be on my wrist, but there is definitely an elegance in their designs. Goes to show when you have the chops to design iconic cars, you can apply that to other areas. The latest are intended to be paired, actually. The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition (phew, that’s a mouthful) is to be paired with the Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition.
How so? Well, to get a Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, you need to go to your Porsche dealer, order the car, and then pony up another $14,000 for the honor of a watch that is paired to your car.
Which, if that’s you, all the more power to you. To me, having a watch that’s only available to owners of a specific car (with it’s own attendant cost) speaks to one of two things. Giving folks another status symbol to carry around with them while not rumbling around the roads, or a way to “guarantee” you won’t see your watch on some plebe’s wrist. Either way, while I like the idea behind the Porsche Design concept, this is one release that’s simply leaving a bad taste in my mouth. porsche-design.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
