Time and Place

Porsche Design unveiled a new watch “Porsche Design P 6520 Compass Watch” inspired by their first Compass Watch, created by Professor Ferdinand Porsche in 1978. “The P 6520 Compass Watch comes in two parts: the upper part is a three-hand watch. The lower part of the watch opens to reveal a liquid compass that can be easily removed. The watch is available with a compass for both the Northern as well as the Southern hemisphere. In order to find one’s bearings with this instrument, a scratch-resistant mirror has been installed on the rear of the watch part and on top of the compass. When opened, the two mirrors click into place at 45 degrees.” The piece is limited to 911 units.
