    Are all Porsche Design watches made by Eterna?

    Lately I see a lot of PD watches at 50-60-75% off around, so this got me thinking if they are not worth a look...

    Does anyone know if all PD watches are made by Eterna and what sort or movements are in there?

    Thanks

    I would say all high-end PD watches are made by Eterna as Porsche owns them. I have a 6612 and its very well made. For their high end models I say they are way over-priced. But if it can be had for 60% off or more, I'd say its a decent buy.

    They used to be made by IWC until 1995 when Ferdinand Porsche bought Eterna.

    Thanks, Dennis! So pre-1995 is IWC, after this is Eterna.

    How about the movements? Are they predominantly ETA past 1996, or here and there we have the rare IWC-inside / Eterna-inside?

    My favorite Porche Design is this one (made by Eterna I believe):

    Porche Design World Timer P6750


    I have found a couple for sale, but the prices are outrageous!
