To kick off and celebrate Porsche’s return to Lemans, Chopard have decided to release the NEW Limited Edition Chopard SuperFast Chronograph Porsche 919 Edition.
Personally, I am not a fan of this watch, but I respect, appreciate and applaud Chopards efforts for releasing a watch like this to celebrate Porsche’s triumphant return to Lemans.
The watch is 45 mm and is constructed out of stainless steel. The dial is very reminiscent of various details of the Porsche 919 Hybrid, which will compete in the LMP1 Endurance World Championship. It’s a three registered chronograph with a date at the four o’clock position. The Movement is the Swiss automatic Chopard in-house caliber 03.5-M with 45 jewels, 28,800 vph and has a 60 hour power reserve. The balance wheel has four spokes, with micro-regulator and screws, and the bridges have a see-through engine finish, with circular-grained main plate decoration. The rotor is done in a heavy metal alloy. This movement can be seen throught the sapphire crystal case back which has the inscription “Porsche Motorsport Official Timing Partner” engraved on it.
This watch is numbered and limited to 919 pieces for the world and will exclusively be available at Chopard Boutiques this fall.
