With the new MONOBLOC ACTUATOR Collection, Porsche Design sets new standards in the art and science of time measurement. The watchmakers at Porsche Design Timepieces AG in Solothurn, Switzerland collaborated with the designers at Studio F. A. Porsche in Zell am See, Austria and the engineers at Porsche Development Centre in Weissach, Germany to develop this line. The result is a revolutionary new approach to the operation of a chronograph. The role model for this innovative mechanism is the racing engine of the new Porsche 911 RSR: a paradigmatic ex-ample of precision and performance on the highest level.
The new MONOBLOC ACTUATOR Collection will be available in Porsche Design stores and select wholesalers starting in May 2017. Prices range from approximately $6,350 to $6,850.
