A New Interpretation: Dashboard Pī6612 PTC by Porsche Design

Grenchen/Bietigheim-Bissingen. With the Pī6612 PTC, the watchmaker Eterna presents the first characteristic model of the Dashboard Line new edition from the Porsche Design wristwatch collection. The timepiece has acquired a new look and its innovative DLC finish, which reflects the technological and functional perfection of Porsche Design. The new Pī6612 PTC will be presented for the first time at the international watch and jewelry exhibition Baselworld (April 3 - 10, 2008) and will be available in Porsche Design Stores and specialist shops from autumn of 2008.

New Porsche Design Watch Model

Its' clearly-structured dial is unmistakable: the Pī6612 PTC again draws inspiration from the dashboard of Porsche sports car, for which the Dashboard Line is named. The new dial has the distinctively typical honeycomb pattern and appears in the color variants black and - for the first time - off-white, with white and red accents that enhance its sporting, dynamic look. The tachymeter dial for speed measurement bears the unique classical Porsche Design typography. The numerals and indices are applied in a light or dark rhodanized-diamond finish, some of them with white 'superluminova', as are the hands, which are pointed for the first time for even more precise reading of the time. The watch's sporting image is enhanced by the chronograph function, highlighted in red, the stopwatch hand, the minute markings and the red "Dashboard" logotype applied to the dial. The three totalizators have light or dark rhodanized surrounds and contribute to the clear structure of the dial, which is surrounded by a DLC-coated bezel.

DLC Technology

One innovation is the special coating used for the watch for the first time by Eterna for Porsche Design. Thanks to DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) technology the new timepiece has acquired its dark color and masculine appearance. In addition, the layers of DLC deposited during the vacuum-based process achieve a smooth, homogeneous surface characterized by extreme hardness and scratch resistance. The properties of DLC come very close to those of diamonds. The coating protects the watch from abrasion and corrosion. Thanks to the special process used, the relevant surface structures of the case remain visible despite coating with DLC. As well as the case, the crown, the push-piece and the titanium strap are also coated with DLC. The new crown, with "Clous de Paris", also ensures a better grip.

Porsche Design Rotor System

The Dashboard Pī6612 PTC is equipped with a special Porsche Design rotor, based on the design of a Porsche sporting wheel-rim. The rotor, made of a coated heavy metal, is secured in authentic style by polished screws on the rotor blade made of high-strength titanium. Towards the axis, the rotor is made of light titanium. The outermost ring of the rotor is made of a heavy metal. The concentration of weight at the outer edge of the rotor optimizes the production of energy. A small amount of movement generates a lot of momentum for the automatic winding mechanism. The sapphire crystal plate affords a view of the rotor system and the automatic mechanism ETA 2894-2.
