Grenchen/Bietigheim-Bissingen. The new Flat Six is a watchmaking confession of faith in Porsche. This watch is uncompromisingly sporting and exudes techni-cal esthetics. Its name – Flat Six – is linked to the six-cylinder boxer engines that played a significant role in establishing Porsche’s global reputation. It remains the driving force in the back of every legendary Porsche 911 to date. Flat, because the cylinders are arranged horizontally in two opposing banks of three, and boxer – the German term for Flat Six – because the pistons “box” back and forth.

Flat Six P’6340

The New Watch Line by Porsche Design

The Watch Quote™ - February 7th, 2006

The predecessors to today’s Flat Six motors were air-cooled. The unmistakable wiper rings on its pistons were one of the characteristic features of these ma-chines. The Flat Six watch from Porsche Design uses these rings as a design element on the flanks of the case. Together with the rotor for automatic winding in the design of Porsche alloy wheels on the movement, the ring design creates a further reference to the Porsche 911. The watchmaking innovation in the tradi-tional and concise Porsche Design typography is carried over to the watch face and bezel with its tachymeter scale to measure velocity. The Flat Six makes a statement not least because of its large 44.5 mm case.

A further feature of the Flat Six Automatic Chronograph is the triangular indicator of the running seconds hand. Just a short glance is enough to check whether the watch is running. The red-marked tips on the counter and seconds hands are ad-ditional functional aids. The ergonomically shaped buttons for start-stop and reset functions integrated into the case provide practical operating assistance for the use of the water-resistant chronograph underwater up to a diving depth of 120 meters. The crown itself is also integrated into the case and thus well protected against impacts.

The Flat Six is available as the Flat Six P’6340 Automatic Chronograph with a me-chanical chronograph movement, Flat Six P’6320 Quartz Chronograph with Rattrapante function (fly-back hand) and tenth of a second measurement, or Flat Six P’6310 Automatic and thus as traditional men’s watch with mechanical auto-matic winding. The P’6340 Flat Six Automatic Chronograph comes with an individual test certificate from the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC) in La Chaux de Fonds.

The Flat Six models supplement the three existing Porsche Design watch lines Indicator, Dashboard and Heritage. The watch dials are available in four colors: black, silver, titanium and red. The Flat Six is supplied with a satin-finish stainless steel or natural rubber strap with stainless steel folding clasp.

Porsche Design is considered as a global luxury men’s brand and is determined by engineered products. Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche established the Porsche Design brand in 1972, whose products are attracting consumers with their technical innovation and represent functionality and timelessness in its pur-est form.
