By the end of 2014, the newly formed Porsche Design timepieces, made in close cooperation with their Design Studio in Zell am See, Austria – had brought the first timepiece created under the new management to market. Fast forward to Baselworld 2016, and for the first time, Porsche Design Timepieces exhibited at their own booth (after many years exhibiting alongside Eterna). And with good reason, as the result of the new initiative is starting to show in the form of a new line of watches called the 1919 Collection, which debuted at Baselworld.

Porsche Design Laser Flex and Shake Pens

We were at the Crystal Shops at City Center in Las Vegas (connected to the Aria), a few weekends ago, and came across two awesome Porsche Design ballpoint pens: the Laser Flex and Shake Pen. The Porsche Design “Laser Flex” pen (shown in a steel with a brushed finish) has a flexible barrel made of stainless steel with precise laser cut slots that contract and release together upon pushing and releasing the top of the pen. In steel, it retails for $500, and in PVD steel, it is $590. Porsche Design’s best selling pen, the Shake Pen, comes in a steel and carbon fiber barrel and has an innovative technology that allows you to lightly shake your wrist to reveal the ballpoint pen. Repeat the motion and it disappears back into the barrel. It’s made in Germany and comes in

Porsche Design Flat Six P'6340 Automatic Chronograph

At Baselworld 2009, Porsche Design introduced some new versions of their popular Flat Six P'6340 Automatic Chronograph.
