Chopard designs a Porsche for your wrist

If you are a racing enthusiast, take a deep breath and look at Chopard's fabulous presentation as part of its collaboration with Porsche Motorsport as the Official Timing Partner. The Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition dedicated to the new Porsche 919 Hybrid is a rockstar that must belong to a watch connoisseur. This sophisticated COSC chronometer-certified flyback chronograph, inspired by the design codes of the racing car, is issued in a 919-piece limited edition only.

It is the amazing result of the encounter between two pioneering and avant-garde companies. 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 partnership agreement between Chopard and Porsche Motorsport once again turns the spotlight on the sophisticated nature of the Superfast collection, a watch making icon from Chopard. Every inch as outstanding as Porsche racing cars, the models in the Superfast collection embody a wealth of superlatives while featuring the distinctive codes of motor racing. They are also a test bench for constantly pushing limits and implementing new procedures or innovative materials. Exactly how Porsche sees motor racing, as a "Lab for our visions".

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.

This sophisticated and powerful new Superfast chronograph proclaims a highly exclusive nature that is a perfect match for the legendary Porsche cars, since the new Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition from Chopard is produced in a strictly limited 919-piece series reserved for those who are quick off the mark!
