A world first: a watch case made of Titanium Carbide.
Built on a passion for improving performance through innovative engineering, Porsche stays successful by constantly introducing new lightweight materials and state-of-the-art technology. Since implementing a new weight-saving DRS aero system on the 992 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the brand decided to take the same forward-thinking approach to its lifestyle division and its line of luxury watches. Porsche Design is proud to announce a new era of chronographs using Titanium Carbide, an entirely new material that offers a comfortable feel and an ever darker appearance over the previous models.

The special material shapes itself as a world-first for Porsche Design, which is why they have chosen to use it on the new Chronograph 1 911 Dakar that commemorates the first rally-inspired production Porsche. The benefits of crafting cases from Titanium Carbide present a lighter, hypoallergenic, and highly scratch-resistant construction for everyday wear on or off the track. While the Porsche Design Chronograph 1 Dakar is exclusive to owners of the vehicle, we are excited to see the luxury lifestyle brand incorporate the new material into its entire collection.
