Porsche Design’s new 1919 series is inspired by the style of Bauhaus sports, adopts a simple and practical design, and is composed of sporty timepieces.
The 1919 series includes two main series: 1919 Datetimer and 1919 Globetimer.
The 1919 Datetimer Series 1 has two watch cases to choose from: titanium or titanium coated with black titanium carbide for a more sporty appearance. Titanium is one of Porsche Design’s favorite materials because it is stronger than stainless steel, while being lighter, corrosion-resistant and hypoallergenic.
The case has a diameter of 42 mm and is water-resistant to 10 bar (approximately 100 meters).
The characteristic gap at the attachment of the strap makes the design very unique and gives a feeling of lightness.
The streamlined structure of the dial focuses attention on important information, time and date display. The matte black background with white markings and hands creates maximum contrast, while the scratch-resistant, double-sided, and 7-layer anti-reflective sapphire crystal mirror ensures optimal readability.
The selected movement is the 4 Hz (28,800 vph) automatic winding Sellita SW200 movement with a power reserve of 38 hours.
The 1919 Datetimer Series 1 can be combined with a strap made of high-quality natural rubber, due to its internal LaserFlex texture to ensure the best ventilation and comfort, or combined with a glass sandblasted titanium bracelet.
1919 Globetimer Series 1 includes four watches with the same characteristics as the Datetimer series, but with the addition of a second time zone function.
A 24-hour ring has been added to the dial with additional hands indicating the time in the second time zone. The bottom cover shows 24 time zones around the world.
The 1919 Globetimer is powered by the Sellita SW330 automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve.
