Another product from Porsche Design was recognised at this year’s “iF Design Awards”: Porsche Design’s Worldtimer P’6750 received the coveted “iF Product Design Award” which is presented every year in Hanover by Industrie Forum Design. The award ceremony will be held on 4th March 2008 within the “CeBit” Information Technology trade fair in Hanover.
The P’6750 timepiece has a distinguishing timeless and puristic design. The watch wins many admirers with its innovative technology – it shows the time in two different time zones simultaneously. The watch producer Eterna – since 1998 licensee partner of Porsche Design – has designed and built a special movement module in its manufacture based on the ETA “Valgranges calibre A 07 111” for the timepiece. The module extends this movement by the addition of an intelligent world time function. The three hands in the centre of the watch display the time in the time zone in which the wearer currently finds himself. By means of discs rotating behind the dial, the movement additionally displays, via two dial apertures, a reference location and the actual time in the corresponding time zone. When the wearer wishes to change the time zone, the reference time is transferred to the hands in the centre of the watch simply by pressing a button.
In October Porsche Design’s P’9521 mobile phone had been voted “Product of the Year” for 2007 in the luxury mobile phone category by readers of “connect” telecommunications magazine.
Porsche Design products are distributed worldwide in own brand stores, franchise outlets, shops-in-shops, upmarket department stores and the exclusive retail trade.
