Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback 'Brown & Leather' Watch
At BaselWorld 2017, replica Porsche Design Watches unveiled something they are proud of. After more than three years of development, Porsche Design has released their first in-house movement, a flyback chronograph called the Porsche Design Werk 01.200. Porsche Design is primarily known for showcasing cutting-edge chronograph technology in its watches with some... unconventional design qualities that often require confidence and a lot of wrist presence (Monobloc Actuator, anyone?). This release of the Porsche Design Chronotimer Flyback Brown & Leather is refreshing and offers a fair value proposition for a reserved chronograph (which is a Porsche anyway) using the Werk 01.200.
Porsche opted for a titanium case, as they usually do for "lightweight performance," and, as usual, with skeletonized lugs, the watch is certainly light. The case measures 42mm x 14.9mm, making it consistent with other models in its range. The chocolate brown dial makes this watch feel more like a sports dress watch than a straight-up sports chronograph. In fact, I think it's the most attractive model in the entire range, and exhibits a certain conservative nature that I don't usually see in Porsche design. If the brown dial wasn't enough, the integrated brown leather strap adds another layer of uniformity to the replica watches online color and sophistication.
