Porsche Design P6612
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is one of the World's most renowned sports car endurance race. The race was christened and created by Hollywood superstar of yesteryear, Steve McQueen , which takes place annually in France.He not only created the race, but participated in it with his Porsche. 

In 2012 TV Show Grey's Anatomy star, racing enthusiast and car collector, Patrick Dempsey took a stand in the legendary race as well, behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT3 RSR.
 
 
With 16 overall wins, nobody has won the 24 Hours of Le Mans more times than Porsche. The journey started in 1970 when Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood led a 1-2-3 finish for the German team behind the wheel of the iconic Porsche 917. Forty years later, Porsche Design has released a special-edition chronograph to commemorate the occasion in the grandest of style.
 
The P6612 timepiece embodies the values of Porsche Design, the luxury brand whose products express accuracy, longevity and quality in form. Sporting bright-colored numeric indices against a black background, with its dial reflecting the 917's dashboard instruments. 

The black minute and hour hands feature a coating of white luminous material; while the seconds stop hand is red and bears a white tip. The Porsche features an automatic chronograph movement and a tachometer scale around the bezel which can be used to calculate overall speed, etched into the brushed and polished titanium case and affixed with a perforated calfskin strap with red top stitching, reminiscent of the 917's steering wheel.

The Porsche Design Dashboard sets operational and great looking accents with its creative material finishing, dynamic design and entirely original shape. The P6612 has been produced in a limited edition of 917 pieces, and is priced at USD 6,000.
