A watch called Kanister might sound like it’s part of a German vacuum cleaning system, but this is a watch inspired by the Porsche 356 Speedster and features a retrograde minutes hand and jump hour in a configuration that resembles a car speedometer.

It’s honestly pretty cool.

From the release:

The Kanister collection is inspired by the RPM counter of the legendary 356 Speedster car. The Kanister 316 variant takes on a new look with its brushed steel case mounted on a vintage five-link bracelet. The combination of modernity and the retro aspect creates an obvious harmony. The pastel green minute indexes, a red area, a black or silver dial and a white hand housed in a 316L stainless steel case with brushed finish, mounted on a stainless steel bracelet elegantly sign the breathtaking design of this model. The collection is powered by the caliber RSV-240, a proprietary patented three-complication module coupled to a manufacture movement (LJP-G100 base), combining retrograde minute, jumping hour and a 56-hour power reserve. Awarded by a Red Dot for Product Design in 2022, the collection is delivered in a prestigious wooden box with an additional black leather or taupe ostrich strap.

The watch comes on a leather strap or steel bracelet and costs about $4,400. It’s shipping now and you can pick it up here.
