Chopard presents the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition
As part of its collaboration with Porsche Motorsport as Official Timing Partner, Chopard presents the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition dedicated to the new Porsche 919 Hybrid. This sophisticated COSC chronometer-certified flyback chronograph, picking up the design codes of the racing car, is issued in a 919-piece limited edition.
Celebrating the partnership between Chopard and Porsche Motorsport in the FIA World Endurance Championship – which is welcoming back the German manufacturer after a lengthy absence – the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition is set to make a noteworthy debut.
The new Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition is entirely in tune with this approach. This imposingly sized chronograph with its 45 mm-diameter case and flyback function beats to the pace of a mechanical Chopard 03.05-M calibre, chronometer-certified by the COSC. This ‘engine’ and its oscillating weight may be admired through a sapphire crystal engraved with the inscription “Official Timing Partner Porsche Motorsport”.
Inspired by the new Porsche 919 Hybrid, the stripes on the dial evoke the racing car’s rear diffuser. Likewise, the “919” appearing in a red rectangle inside a 9 o’clock subdial is identical to the number of the Porsche racing cars. Finally, the rubber strap is inspired by slick tyres serving to negotiate bends at extremely high speeds.
As Official Timing Partner Porsche Motorsport since the start of the season, Chopard will also be alongside the German team for its big return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A legendary team and an equally fabled circuit will contribute to making this a new milestone in the history of motor racing. On June 14th and 15th, Porsche will be looking to earn its 17th victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
