Porsche Design Worldtimer P’6750 in rose gold case
The Porsche Design Worldtimer P’6750 automatic watch, which was first introduced in April 2007 during the annual show in Basel, Switzerland as a black PVD coated titanium timepiece, is finally available in a much more expensive rose gold case.
Manufactured for the German design studio by a Swiss watchmaker Eterna, the Porsche Design Worldtimer P’6750 features a second time zone display as well as an extra crown at 4 o’clock, making it easier to manipulate the extra time settings.
While many GMT watches tend to sport cluttered, hard to read design, this particular timekeeper makes the task of reading the time in the second zone a lot easier.
As you can see, current time in the main time zone is indicated with the normal hour, minute and seconds hands, the GMT time is displayed in the aperture at 9 o’clock.
To set the time, you need to find in the small aperture at 3 o’clock the abbreviation of the city that represents the time zone that you are interested in.
If such abbreviations as “HNL” or “AKL” confuse you a little, you can turn the watch upside down and find an easy to understand table that will tell you that the former stays for “Honolulu” (GMT -10) and the latter means “Auckland” (GMT +12.)
Like most products in the class, the Worldtimer is by no means a small watch.
Its ETA Valgranges calibre A 07 111 movement is heavily modified by Eterna’s engineers and is hidden inside a huge case 45mm in diameter and 16.8mm thick.
Although automatic watches are known for their impressive thickness, this one is worthy of a professional diving timekeeper, which is supposed to withstand enormous pressure of water. Well, maybe that was the idea, after all.
Just like most masterpieces delivered by the Porsche Design studio, the watch features a highly legible and ergonomic design, making it both practical and fun to wear.
