It may seem obvious but few people make the connection between motorsports and timing. Clearly, time is everything when the race is in full throttle, pushing either your own limits or the limits of others, every second counts. It’s why Grand Prix drivers trust nothing less than a chronograph for accuracy. And it’s why Porsche Design settled for nothing less upon releasing their Monobloc Actuator watch collection.

Many aspects of this timepiece make it an heirloom-worthy item in the name for racing. First off, the chronograph buttons are seamlessly integrated into the case of the watch, an engineering feat to say the least. Additionally, this means an integrated rocker switch controls the entire movement from inside the 45.5 mm titanium case. It’s also powered by a Valjoux/ETA 7754 movement, comes with either rubber strap or titanium bracelet and is available in either a brushed black or blue dial. Price start at $6,350. [Purchase]
