The Porsche among wristwatches
The Chopard Superfast Chrono was developed on the occasion of Porsche Motorsport's victory at the FIA Long Distance World Championship in 2015. The impressive double victory in the LMP1 class at Le Mans had to be celebrated by Chopard as official timekeeper of the German team. With this classically elegant watch, Chopard created a timeless companion for motorsport fans and delighted a large fan community.
When Chopard returned from Porsche to Le Mans, he produced a special, strictly limited watch: the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition. The inspiration came from the design of the Superfast Chrono watches and the Porsche 919 Hybrid, which made a major contribution to the carmaker's success during the season. Some facets of the Porsche model can be seen on the dial: the 919 logo at 9 o'clock, the silver tone as the noble Porsche colour, the black-red details reminiscent of the colour design of the hybrid racing car. The "Porsche Motorsport Official Timing Partner" lettering is located on the back. The glass caseback reveals the masterful COSC-certified movement with automatic winding and flyback function. Shining hands and indices, the date window and the partly red hands give this watch the finishing touch without appearing too intrusive. Only 919 pieces of the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition were produced - and numbered accordingly.
