The 991-generation GT3 RS is Porsche’s pièce de résistance of the last decade. It’s been tweaked and perfected to levels not seen before. It’s bigger, faster, stronger than any naturally aspirated Porsche in history. That car is dripping with performance, technology, and special equipment that you can’t find anywhere else. In proper Porsche tradition, it punches well above its weight class, taking down more powerful supercars from Italy with ease. Obviously you know all of that, because that’s exactly why you bought one. And now there is a special edition Porsche Design watch to help you celebrate your GT3 RS in all of its awesomeness. You can now extend the ultimate sports car feeling to your wrist!
This collaboration between Porsche Design and Porsche—they are different companies, remember—offers GT3 RS owners a custom-made chronograph with the kind of precision, lightweight construction, functional perfection, and performance that they would find in their stunning choice of car. Both are precisely-timed and fine-tuned machines. The watch has tachymeter markings to help you time laps and calculate average speeds over a specific distance.
The large 42mm watch case is constructed out of black carbide coated titanium with a carbon fiber dial, making it light on the wrist and easy to wear on a daily basis. While a GT3 RS is a track-ready machine, it could also be pressed into daily-driver duty if you don’t mind a loud exhaust and sporty seats. The carbon of the watch dial is actually made from the same carbon as you’d find in the front lid, fenders, and wing of your GT3 RS.
More correlations between the Porsche GT3 RS and the Porsche Design Chronograph GT3 RS? The watch is custom engraved with your car’s VIN. The watch uses clearly distinguished yellow markings for the same reason the car has a yellow stripe at the 12 o’clock position on the steering wheel, so you can see them with nothing more than a glance. The watch’s band is presented in GT3 RS Lizard Green, but comes with another band in black Alcantara for the days you aren’t feeling quite so sporty. The back of the watch case can be customized to your GT3 RS’ wheels, as satin aurum, silver, platinum, black, and Lizard green wheel motif are available.
Like the GT3 RS’ high-revving 520-horsepower four-liter engine, the watch based on the car derives its cool factor from the unseen thing that powers it. With Porsche Design’s first proprietary automatic caliber, called “Werk 01.200”, the GT3 RS features the most advanced chronometric precision Porsche Design has ever offered. It has been certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) to verify that it is at least on par with every other major chrono manufacturer. And because it is equipped with a “flyback” complication, allowing the chronograph to be reset at the push of a button and fling back to the start position without losing a fraction of a second, you can start a new measurement without having to reset.
The timepiece is currently available for all GT3 RS owners. If you don’t own one, you won’t be able to buy this watch. It is strictly limited. You must order your new chronometer through a Porsche dealer. Your individually numbered 911 GT3 RS watch is available for about $11,000, and includes the black and Lizard straps in both Medium and Large sizes. Get your GT3 RS on track, and on your wrist.
