Porsche Design P’6520 Compass Watch

I’m a sucker for a good-looking watch, even more if it’s limited edition, and the P’6520 Compass Watch fits that bill nicely. Based on an original design created by Professor Ferdinand Porsche in 1978, the P’6520 is constructed from lightweight, Black-PVD coated titanium. In addition to its sleek, all-black look, the watch features a flip-up dial that reveals a removable compass, giving it a bit more functionality beyond just a timepiece. The sad news, it’s limited to just 911 pieces. Combine that with the cost of anything from Porsche Design brand and you’re looking at spending a pretty penny.

    Prof. Prosche also designed the Tiger I, Tiger II, the Elefant, and the super-heavy Panzer- VIII ‘Maus’ for Germany during WWII.

    Yes, and he designed the VW Beetle! (on a contract from Hitler, no less, starting 1934).

    But how he managed to design this crappy watch in 1978 is beyond me, as he died in 1951 at the age of 75.

    You need to be seriously stupid to 1) buy a ridiculous over-prized, and, 2) to buy anything from this ‘Porche Design’ company (as if novel fashion garments, luggage accessories and whatever crap would have anything in common with Tiger II. And they even have the nerve to talk about genuine and warn of counterfeits….).
