Why We Love it

It’s not every day that a truly original watch rears its head. The Porsche Design Chronograph from Orfina, however, is one such timepiece. 

Designed by none other than Ferdinand Alexander ‘Butzi’ Porsche (creator of the 911), it was a technological marvel released in the very midst of the Quartz Crisis. Available in stainless steel, it was perhaps more famously seen in black PVD-coated steel — as in this example — making it the first commercially available timepiece to feature such a ‘blacked out’ treatment. Porsche Design, Butzi’s design studio, would later partner with IWC on timepiece production, but its earliest watches were produced by Orfina, as is the case with the Chronograph.

This particular Porsche Design Chronograph from circa the 1970s is housed in a 41mm black PVD-coated stainless steel tonneau case with a signed crown, a mineral crystal, dual barrel pushers, and a smooth bezel. It features a matte black tritium dial with an inner tachymeter bezel, luminous indices, a 1/5th seconds track, a matching, modified ‘sword’ handset, a triple-register chronograph, and a day-date display. Paired to a matching, PVD-coated folded 'H-link' bracelet with a signed blade clasp, it’s powered by the Lemania 5100, perhaps one of the most significant and interesting automatic chronograph calibers ever developed. 

It’s a rare occurrence when one has the opportunity to snag such a cool model. You know what we’re gonna say:

Don’t sleep on it!
