P’6920 Rattrapante receives Red Dot Award

The flyback chronograph P'6920 Rattrapante Limited Edition from the luxury brand Porsche Design has just received a sought-after award at the international Red Dot Award Product Design 2010 competition. The P'6920 has been honoured in the category "watches and jewellery" with the "red dot" seal, recognised around the world for high design quality. The awards are handed out each year by an international jury of well-known design experts. 

This year more than 1,600 companies from 57 countries entered the competition. The award ceremony will take place on July 5th, 2010 in Essen (Germany). "Porsche Design focuses on technically inspired products with a timeless, functional and purist design", said Dr. Juergen Geßler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group. "We do not follow fashionable trends, instead we offer our customers longlasting products which are created to be lifelong companions. Trends come and go - design endures. Our products do without bells and whistles. They are always credible and genuine. Since the foundation of the brand, we have already won more than 130 national and international awards and we regard this as our duty."

The Porsche Design P'6920 Rattrapante Limited Edition is a mechanical flyback chronograph, which is available in a limited edition of 200 watches in the titanium version. The chronometer allows the user to precisely measure and display intermediate times as often as required. The Rattrapante has a striking 45 millimetre casing which is made of titanium, a metal known for its light weight and resistance to corrosion. The casing gets its black surface thanks to PVD technology: this vacuum- based process causes a matt black layer of metal nitrides to condense, protecting the watch from external influences. The sapphire glass back provides a view of the Valjoux 7750 automatic mechanism with Porsche Design rotor system.

Additionally the flyback chronograph comes with a certificate of precision issued by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC) and offers a power reserve of 48 hours. "The P'6920 Rattrapante Limited Edition combines venerable Swiss watchmaking with the purist Porsche design in an exceptional way", says Patrick Schwarz, CEO the Swiss watchmaking company Eterna SA, the licensee for the production and sale of Porsche Design watches. "The split-second mechanism is a complicated function which is not easy to realise."
