The shape and dial are correspondingly functional. The dial has grown to 44 millimetres and the case is made entirely of lightweight, non-allergenic titanium. The material was known in aerospace industry, and Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, designer and founder of the luxury brand, became the first to use it in watchmaking in 1980. He recognised its benefits - titanium is harder than steel but only half the weight, does not rust and is anti-magnetic. The new chronograph is also available in a deep black colour produced by shot-blasting titanium and covering it with a layer of black PVD. In fact, the black watches trend was also a Porsche Design idea. Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche already came up with the world's first-ever all-black watch in 1972. The sapphire crystal surface is non-reflective and the case is water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters.
The new generation of Dashboard chronographs is available in twelve variations. The P'6620 Dashboard includes models with a white dial, a gold case, or with calf leather or caoutchouc straps. The two entry-level models of the Porsche Design P'6620 Dashboard with a titanium or black links bracelet are available at €3,950 (SGD5613). If you wish to fork out much less and do not mind a lower quality product, perhaps a visit to China or Thailand may help.
