  • About Porsche Design

    Porsche Design is a brand of luxury sports accessories created by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the grandson of the founder of the famous car brand of the same name. The Porsche Design Studio that designs its accessories came into being in Stuttgart in 1972.

    Two years later, the studio moved to Zell am See in Austria. The development of its creations coincided with that of the legendary 911 – the culmination of a design ethos that went on to inspire all subsequent creations, particularly watches.

    Porsche Design devises timepieces with innovative designs based on a partnership with the watchmaking firm Eterna, which looks after the production and marketing of the watches.

    Since 2005, all Porsche accessories have been brought together under the single brand “Porsche Design”. The Porsche Design watchmaking collections are all part of the “P'6000” collection, which comprises a number of lines.
