The latest collaboration between the German luxury house Porsche Design and Hollywood actor and founder of the motorsport racing team Dempsey Racing, Patrick Dempsey, combines precision and high-speed technology into one sophisticated—and entirely titanium!—timepiece. An evolution of one of the brand’s milestone chronograph released almost 20 years ago—then, the world’s first all-titanium watch—the Porsche Design Dempsey Racing Limited Edition is a self-winding mechanical chronograph with a calibre ETA Valjoux 7753. The piece’s matte black dial is contrasted with luminous white numerals and features date indication, 30-minute and 12-hour counters, and small second viewing. Overtop sits a non-reflective sapphire crystal contained in a brushed titanium case and bracelet—an anti-allergic metal used specifically in motorsports. As a whole the chronograph, in the words of Demspey, is designed to “capture what it is like to be on the race track—fighting for every hundredth of a second.”
