Black is cool!

The world's first completely black chronograph was created in 1972 at the Porsche Design Studio. It was a unique style which still characterizes Porsche design today: fundamental, engineered, luxurious - because it is pure.

EDITION 1 is a tribute and a limited edition collection introduced in 2007.
It contains 14 items, each of them deliberately pure black:
a belt, finely grained soft lambskin jacket, briefcase, laptop case,
aluminum pen, credit card holder, finest Italian calfskin leather wallet,
titanium cufflinks inlaid with onyx, key ring,
powder coated zinc and brass lighter,
ruthenium pocket knife and titanium sunglasses.

The thirteenth item is the Porsche Design watch:



The very last, fourteenth item to complete this set
was Porsche Cayman S EDITION 1 (production run of 777 units).



Porsche Design Edition 1 P6341 is PVD coated Titanium, case extra large 44mm, on a black rubber strap powered Valjoux 7750 chrono movement.
