Sure they may sound similar, but the differences between a driver's watch and a diver's watch are vast. Porsche Design is certainly familiar with the former, but this is only their second attempt at the latter.
The P'6780, which follows the design studio's numeric nomenclature, is designed around one innovative feature: in order to protect the case from shocks and bumps, and prevent the crown from being turned during the course of underwater activities, the movement encased in its stainless steel cylinder mounts into a titanium bracket to which the rubber wrist straps are attached, and hinges forward for access. Neat trick, and also gives the timepiece a rugged look uncharacteristic of the company known for its smooth, uncluttered designs.
