Named for the most hardcore iteration of the 718 Cayman yet – the 718 GT4 RS – Porsche Design has introduced the Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS.
Reserved only for customer’s of the German marque’s menacing mid-engined sports car, the timepiece is, like the RS-badged 718 Cayman GT4 motor car, available with the Stuttgart-based manufacturer’s Weissach package. Fashioned from hard-wearing titanium, the special-edition watch’s case houses a black dial. Reminiscent of the 718 Cayman GT4 RS’s tachometer, the timepiece’s second hands are finished in a yellow hue.
The wrist strap features a “GT4 RS” emblem, embossed into the leather and Race-Tex material. The latter material is, of course, found throughout the motor car’s cabin.
Beating at the centre of the Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS, Porsche Design’s Werk 01.1200 calibre is endowed with a flyback function, which combines starting, stopping and resetting. The chronograph movement’s winding rotor is available in various designs and hues to match owners’ vehicle configurations, making each piece as bespoke as possible.
Further personalisation comes with the optional Weissach package. Owners who have equipped their 718 Cayman GT4 RS sports car with this package are offered the choice to do the same with their watch. Included in this package is a new dial, which features visible carbon fibre, and an Arctic Silver ring on the dial.
