Porsche Design’s answer to the humble advent calendar is an exercise in excess. Famed for their sleek designs, it’s wondrous and slightly perplexing to see the company behaving in such an ostentatious manner. Porsche Design’s advent calendar costs a cool million dollars (approx £618,000) and stands 1.75 metres high – and only one is available on each continent. Each window hides a Porsche Design goodie and for your cool yule million you’ll get a kitchen, speedboat (photographs illustrate the larger objects, obviously), gold sunglasses, running shoes, a P’6910 Indicator Chronograph in rose gold, and cufflinks. Clearly aimed at the man who has everything (apart from a speedboat and kitchen) there’s not a cheap European chocolate in sight.
