Porsche holds the record for the most number of overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. With 16 overall wins, Porsche has proved it is definitely the best. Nearly forty years after Porsche won its first Le Mans title with Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood behind the wheels of the iconic Porsche 917 K; Porsche Design has decided it’s time to commemorate this special occasion. To mark this grand event Porsche Design has unveiled special-edition chronograph. The chronograph christened, the Porsche Design P’6612 Dashboard Le Mans 1970 Limited Edition is designed after the 917 K’s dashboard instruments. Offset by the number 23 that adorned the winning 917 K, this chronograph is a must have for the Porsche fans.
Featuring an automatic chronograph movement, the P’6612 Dashboard Le Mans 1970 timepiece boasts of a tachometer scale around the bezel that can be used to calculate overall speed. The brushed and polished titanium case is complemented perfectly by the perforated calfskin strap with red topstitching suggestive of the 917’s steering wheel. What is more every timepiece is accompanied by a scale model of the 917 K and a booklet signed by Herrmann and Attwood.
A limited edition restricted to just 917 timepieces, the P’6612 Dashboard Le Mans 1970 chronograph is indeed a great way to celebrate the success of Porsche.
