Porsche unveilsed the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, a state-of-the-art 911 with design elements from the 1950s and early 60s and the first of four collector's pieces of the Heritage Design strategy. Historical exterior and interior design elements have been reinterpreted and combined with the latest technology in a special limited edition from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.
Only 992 examples of this exclusive model, in dealerships from autumn 2020, will be produced. Along with the introduction of this new limited edition model, Porsche Design has also created the Chronograph 911 4S Heritage Design Edition, a high-quality chronograph exclusively available to purchasers of the car.
Crafted from light and corrosion-resistant titanium, the 42 mm x 14.90 mm titanium case is strongly recognizable for the architectural openings at the lugs.
The black satin-brushed dial offers excellent readability thanks to white Super-LumiNova used for the indices and the hour and minute hands. White is also the central seconds hand. The green circles in the characteristic Phosphorus Green hue were inspired by Porsche speedometers. The same green hue is used for the numerals of dial and sub-dials in the typical Porsche font.
Gold-coloured accents are used for the Porsche Design logo at 3 o'clock and for the Porsche logo on the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock.
The watch is powered by the self-winding caliber WERK 01.100, an in-house-developed movement that is also certified as a chronometer by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC). Beating at the frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph), it has an autonomy of 48 hours.
Its rotor mimics the design of the Fuchsfelge (Fuchs wheel), which was originally developed for the first Porsche 911. Based on the specification of the owner’s car, the watch rotor can be either high-gloss black or satin platinum.
Matched to a Bordeaux red or black strap made from the same leather as that used for the interiors of Porsche sports cars, the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition will be exclusively available to order at Porsche dealerships worldwide to future owners of the Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition at a retail price of Euro 10,950. porsche-design.com
