PS Design - 901 Edition Mechanical Timepiece
Porsche 901 was the name originally intended for the Porsche 911 that was launched at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show as the successor to its 356 series to wide acclaim. With Peugeot claiming the rights for all three model numbers with a ‘0’ in the middle, Porsche simply replaced the ‘0’ with a ‘1’, therefore becoming the 911.
Porsche 901 – 50 celebrating 50 years
Paul Stephens Design together with a traditional English watchmaker has created a unique mechanical timepiece to celebrate 50 years of this extremely rare and significant Porsche. The design is inspired by simple clean instruments of the original 901, whilst the movement is a genuine Swiss ETA re-commissioned period item from the same era.
Just 50 individually numbered pieces were produced, and each was created and hand assembled in England ensuring extreme quality and exclusivity.
