Porsche Guides Your Way with Compass Watch

If you ever felt lost (literally) while driving your Porsche, it means that you need the compass watch that Porsche has specially designed in order to guide your way. It indicates time and direction mechanically and is a two-in-one useful accessory. Actually, the current compass watch is a modernized re-issue of the one created by the designer Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche back in 1978.

The P’6520 Compass Watch is crafted from black PVD-coated titanium and features an automatic three-hand watch face: it has the date function, luminescent hands and the liquid compass. In order to find one’s bearings with this instrument, a scratch-resistant mirror has been installed on the rear of the watch part and on top of the compass. Above all these, it is water resistant to a depth of up to 50 meters too and its bracelet has a PVD coating (Physical Vapour Deposition).

What it’s new to the 2011 compass watch compared to the 1978 edition? A fashionably oversize of 42 mm in diameter (increased by three millimeters than the elder one) and the light non-allergenic titanium (which has replaced the aluminum construction). The titanium also helps the magnetic needle of the compass not to be affected, as titanium is a non magnetic material.

And, not to forget, the entire accessory is designed in the traditionally economical Porsche Design color scheme. Apparently, Porsche Design was the first company in the watch industry to have ever used the color black on a watch back in 1972.

The production of P’6520 Compass Watch is limited to 911 pieces, so you would better hurry up if you want this cool piece of compass watch.
