The 901 Collection is a mechanical timepiece. The dial is cut directly from a salvaged, air-cooled Porsche 911 meaning every single timepiece is visibly unique and born with a story.
A UNIQUE STORY
The 901 collection has more than 50 years of history captivated in one watch. Paying tribute to the iconic air-cooled Porsche 911’s, the dial is made from vintage 911 parts. The subtle references to the design of the original 911 is our way of paying tribute to one of the most iconic sports cars ever created.
901 was the name originally intended for the legendary Porsche 911. In the autumn of 1964, at the Paris Auto Salon, Porsche presented their successor to their 356 model. Unfortunately for Porsche another car maker had claimed ownership of any three digit numbers with an ‘0’ in the middle. Porsche, therefore, simply replaced the ‘0’ with the number ‘1’.
