The Porsche Monobloc Actuator is a true piece of innovation from Porsche Design. Titanium has been widely used for developing racecar engine and components for over 50-years, a material that is used extensively in the construction of the Porsche Monobloc Actuator to make it lightweight and robust.
Inspired by the new mid-engine Porsche 911-RSR launched that competes at the FIA World Endurance Championship, this timepiece has a push-piece panel to activate the chronograph functionality. It closely imitates the rocker arm mechanism from the engine of the Porsche 911 RSR. This innovative concept is the result of countless hours being spent by the designers and engineers of the Porsche Development Centre in Weissach, Germany, Porsche Design Studio F.A. Porsche in Zell am See, Austria and Porsche Design Timepieces in Solothurn, Switzerland.
This German branded, Swiss made timepiece with a 48-hours of power reserve is priced at €6,250 ($6,750).
