    Porsche Black Watch

    The other day my friend showed me his timepiece from Porsche Design. I myself was never a PD fan and was never into the sunglasses and watches but I do collect watches and still take Panerai as my favourite (for those who love watches, I am in love with the new SLY TECH 1000 500 limited pieces).

    However, I was pretty impressed by his watch. It was 44.5 face and in line with the more manly image of big watches and it is ALL BLACK. Does anyone own this watch? Just wanna share. Only problem is that PD watches are never collectors' watches like PP, Rolex or IWC.

    Check it out: (Remember not the Driver's Selection)

    The one I am truly interested in is P'6900 Satellite 49 mm.
    I think that one is pretty expensive. The other one I like is the P'6340(P'6300 flat six series chronograph) Black dial with Caoutchouc strap with folding clasp.

    This is probably just a playwatch and am looking at the pricing for it but for sure it has no appreciation value and I am just a bit worried about the movement itself. Porsche probably ain't that cool on watches except for the chrono package maybe on our cars (even that one isn't that useful...)

    That's the one I love Avantgarde but I love the 49 mm even more but I think that one costs too much for its movements. If there's anything timeless, it can only be a Patek or a Rolex. Porsche, sure... a Carrera RS but not the watch. But this one is great.

    Re: Porsche Black Watch

    Just checked out the 49 mm P6910 Indicator Porsche watch and in HK$ that's just under 1 mil and that would be around 115-120K USD. Um... a bit outta range for me but who would buy it really...

    Are you kidding me? It costs more than my 997S!

    Re: Porsche Black Watch

    Targa Tim you went to UBC right? Used to love Whistler. Yes my friend, it is 980,000 HKD list price it took them o 4 years to develop and it is a Porsche self made movement. It cost just a tad more than my boxster s which I got for 933,000 HKD. Sure I will take one of those black dial thing, just take my ride away... NOT. It's ridiculous...


    Re: Porsche Black Watch

    Caoutchouc strap and I was looking it up really... nice marketing term for rubber. PAG does know marketing really...

    Re: Porsche Black Watch

    caoutchouc isn't even marketing, its French! LOL, this watch reminds me very much of the so called "CGT watch" which was then released for about Euro 18.000,- ... LOL, For that prize, I'd buy a nice swiss or french watch instead, not such a fancy marketing instrument.

    Yes I went to UBC. B.Sc.(Pharmacology) in 1988. Do I know you?

    Whistler is fantastic, but there is ongoing construction at the sea-to-sky highway that I am avoiding it right now (picked up a few rock chips on my 997S last time I drove up).

    Targa Tim no I went to boarding school in Toronto. You should have used the Cayenne instead of your 997s.

    Guys here's the real deal but I didn't like it. Sorry not for 980,000 HKD or 120K USD.

    Re: Porsche Black Watch

    I wonder how many TSBs Porsche will put out on these babies... 996 has 220 of them..so far

    Re: Porsche Black Watch

    I've always wondered whether this was in fact "Eterna" movement or some other movement improved by the Porsche Design. Knowing how watch industry works, it's hard to believe that Porsche Design desined this movement from the scratch.

    Re: Porsche Black Watch

    Still amazes me that anyone would buy that instead of a GT3 (for the same money)...

    Re: Porsche Black Watch

    LESS money, at least for the 996 GT3 anyways.

    According to the PD press release the basis was a caliber ETA/Valjoux 7750 movement. However, it was heavily modified and extended by PD/Eterna to include the three additional spring houses for the alleged world first digital stop watch on an automatic movement.
