Porsche Design presents the limited edition 45mm P´6920 Rattrapante Chronograph with a design reminiscent of their P’6920 Indicator. The Rattrapante is available in 2 versions: PVD-coated titanium (200 pieces, priced at $27,550), and PVD-coated titanium with a rose gold bezel (50 pieces, priced at $35,730).
The P´6920 Rattrapante can measure intermediate times using its split-second mechanism. When the chronograph is started with the right-hand push-piece (at the 2 o’clock position), the two superimposed central seconds hands begin to move. The bottom seconds hand is stopped by the third push-piece on the left and indicates the first intermediate time. When the left hand push-piece is actuated again, the upper hand catches up with the second one and moves on in synchrony. The seconds hands feature red and green tips to make them readily distinguishable. To prevent parallax error, the minute markings are printed on the underside of the crystal around its periphery, and the main hands are skeletonized so that they will not obscure the seconds hands.
The sapphire crystal on the case back allows the owner to view the self-winding Valjoux 7750 movement with its AR2 Rattrapante module and double-sided winding system with its energy-optimised Porsche Design rotor designed by Eterna for the Indicator P’6910. The Rattrapante Chronograph comes with a certificate of precision issued by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC) in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
