The Porsche Design Chronograph I came out in 1972 and this was the first PVD watch on the market. There were no other all-black watches or companies that customized watches to become all-black like Bamford or Pro-Hunter. Many of these Chronograph I watches are found in poor condition because the PVD would be worn off. This example does show signs of wear, but most of the PVD is in-tact. Porsche Design watches from this era are becoming more sought after by collectors and offer a good value for a PVD coated automatic chronograph with a reliable Valjoux based movement.
