Total 911

New timepiece brings magic of RUF to your wrist

Nezumi x RUF Voiture Chronograp­h fuses an enthusiast­s’ favourite with Pfaffenhau­sen flair


It might only be January, but already Total 911 is happy to present what it tips to be watch of the year for Porsche enthusiast­s. While we await the imminent arrival of the SCR from RUF Automobile, the long-time and decorated engineers of bespoke sports and supercars, a tie-up with Stockholmb­ased Nezumi Studios has seen the release of a timepiece which brings its philosophy of engineerin­g precision from road to wrist.

Nezumi’s timepieces are a firm Total 911 favourite having featured consistent­ly in the mag over the years, its decorated Voiture Chronograp­h in particular finding favour for its dedication to detail and vintage, motorsport-style appearance.

Nezumi’s latest and greatest addition to the Voiture collection comes from its Specials line, created in Sweden by Nezumi founder and designer, David Campo, in partnershi­p with RUF director, Estonia Ruf. Made in Germany, the ref. VQ2S.901 features a steel case, flanked at either end by a fine, perforated leather band. Its solid, moulded case back also comes engraved with the RUF logo. Inside the double-domed sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating, a RUF green watch face is elegantly contrasted by a black tachymeter, which can for example be used to determine the speed of a vehicle travelling between two set points. A stopwatch function enables the wearer to measure lap times via the timepiece, which measures 40mm in diameter (excluding the crown).

For Nezumi’s David Campo, the partnershi­p with RUF for this signature timepiece is not just a reflection of a shared philosophy for the efficient interactio­n of parts and the emotions they drive. It’s also about a passion for cars: the horologist is a devout Porsche enthusiast and enjoys evolving the 911’s timeless design on his various classic projects, having also set up Roughneck Brigade, a members-only classic Porsche club. “I admire the RUF design strategy and have a particular affinity with the company’s later cars, which it has been able to design from the ground up,” he tells us. “RUF have been early modifiers within the Porsche scene, and that’s something that’s always appealed to me.”

The ref. VQ2S.901 timepiece is limited to 200 units, each individual­ly numbered, and comes with a two-year warranty. For more informatio­n, visit nezumistud­ You can also follow Nezumi across your preferred social media channels @nezumistud­ios.
