In 1972, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche founded his own design studio – Porsche Design. His first product was the Chronograph I, which also happens to be the world’s first all black watch. The idea was simple: eliminate unwanted reflections in favor of readability.

Now Porsche Design is re-releasing the matte black chronograph as the P’6510 Black Chronograph and has added a few upgrades. The case’s diameter has grown by 6 millimeters and is now 44 millimeters. Rather than painting the black on, the watch has a black PVD (physical vapour depo-sition) coating to make the layer more durable. Inside you’ll find the ETA Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement with a calendar. It’s also water resistant to a depth of 100 metres and has an anti-reflective scratchproof sapphire crystal face.

Limited to… wait for it: 911 numbered pieces.
