Orfina Porsche Design Chronograph 7176 NOS

Lemania 5100 - mint condition - creamy lume

This PVD coated Porsche Design Chronograph 7176S with Lemania 5100 movement is preserved in NOS condition.

Ferdinand Porsche not only designed the legendary sports car Porsche 911, but also the iconic chronograph you see here. The dial design is reminiscent of the instruments of the legendary 911 sports car, which is why the racing chrono is known among collectors as the "tachymeter on the wrist". When the watch was spotted on Tom Cruise's wrist in the 1986 movie Top Gun, the chronograph achieved its definitive cult status.

In 1972 the first version powered by the Valjoux 7750 caliber was produced. Around 1975 version with the Lemania 5100 caliber was presented, that was recognizable by the central white lollipop minute chrono hand and the 24-hour day/night indicator at 12 o'clock. The Valjoux chrono, on the other hand, featured a 30-minute counter at 12 o'clock.

This Orfina Porsche Design reference 7176 from 1976 is preserved in mint condition. Not to be overlooked is the perfectly preserved original PVD coating on the case and bracelet. On most (still preserved) watches the vulnerable coating shows signs of wear on the case and inside of the bracelet. The dial of this watch is absolutely untouched and flawless.

In addition to the chronograph features, the watch has a date and weekday display in Italian. Thanks to the quick set mechanism, the date and day of the week can be set instantly.
