All the world's motoring hype has been around the all-new 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS – a more track-focused variant of the Cayman GT4 with a much larger rear wing and more power. But, what hasn't been reported so widely on is what launched alongside Porsche's latest supercar.

As pointed out in a Top Gear YouTube video, head of Porsche's GT department, Andreas Preuninger was wearing a unique watch when showing off the brand new GT4 RS. This wasn't any ordinary watch, in fact, it was far from it.

He was wearing something called the Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS. This is a bespoke watch that each and every GT4 RS owner qualifies to order alongside their new supercar. It encompasses designs elements from the spec on their GT4 RS configuration – making it fully customisable.

The watch is surrounded by the classic 42mm motorsport-inspired case we’re very used to and is available in either natural titanium or black titanium carbide coating. One can also choose between two bezel designs, with tachymeter or 60-minute scale, again either in black or natural titanium.

Its connection with the car continues through to its dial too. Each watch can feature either a matte black or carbon fibre dial. The former option is an anti-reflective dial inspired by the sports car's rev counter.

The dial features multiple white and signal yellow accents, and the ‘GT4 RS` logo along with a stylised checkered flag on the running second at 9 o’clock. The dial is framed by a ring that can be optioned in the exact same colour as the exterior of the customer's car. As standard, the dial is framed by an Arctic Gray ring – the hero colour for the 718 Cayman GT4 RS.

Inside the watch, you'll find the Porsche Design Caliber WERK 01.200 movement – a proprietary flyback chronograph chronometer-certified by COSC. But what's really cool is the open case back which can feature a Porsche-style wheel in the same colour as on your car.

As for the straps, the new Porsche Design Chronograph comes on either a black leather or Race-Tex strap, each embossed with the car's logo and decorative stitching in Arctic Gray or Deep Sea Blue. Additional straps/bracelets can be ordered in various colours, made of either titanium or genuine Porsche interior leather.

The Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS is now available to order through authorised Porsche dealers. Each Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS customer who configures their timepiece will be given an individual code, unique to their watch.

Prices start at EUR 8,050 but go up depending on the options chosen. For more details about this new watch, visit porsche-design.com.
