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
