TIME'S UP

911 Porsche World - - Product Call -

If you've al­ways fan­cied an of­fi­cial Porsche time­piece but balk at the prices, this might just be the watch you've been wait­ing for. Known as the Es­sen­tial Watch, it's a pleas­ingly min­i­mal­ist af­fair housed in a tough­ened alu­minium case. Water­proof to 10ATM, it has both a screw-down base and crown, both of which are hewn from tough­ened stain­less steel. The base on each watch is en­graved with a unique se­rial num­ber. The min­eral glass, mean­while, sports a su­per-hard sap­phire coat­ing and the black dial of­fers red ac­cents and the Porsche crest. What's more, it comes com­plete with not just two fab­ric straps but also a black leather strap with con­trast red stitch­ing. All three are easy to swap out thanks to a quick-change mech­a­nism. Nice. In­side the 43mm di­am­e­ter case is a sin­gle-jewel Swiss Ronda quartz move­ment for pin-point ac­cu­racy. And that price? A mere £350 from porsche.com.
