Porsche Motorsport is the official winner of the 6 Hours of Mexico 2016. For the third year in a row, Chopard is the Official Timing Partner of Porsche Motorspor and is proud to congratulate its ambassadors Mark Webber and Brendon Hartley for their unrivalled victory at the WEC debut in Mexico This year, at Le Mans, Chopard unveiled a new watch, the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition, a 100-piece limited serie, inspired by the Porsche 919 Hybrid 2016 prototype car.
Exclusively available in Chopard boutiques, this model proudly flies high the banner of the new Porsche prototype by picking up its aesthetic codes. Witness the imposing 45 mm-diameter case made in titanium – an ultra-light material much favoured in the world of endurance racing – that is bead-blasted, blackened by a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) treatment ensuring an extremely scratch-resistant coating, and water-resistant to 100 metres.
Like a racing car equipped with the finest mechanism, the case of the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition with its sleek, sporty lines houses a ‘motor’ built for competition: Chopard Calibre 03.05-M. Designed like an authentic engine, entirely produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fleurier Ebauches workshops, this mechanical self-winding chronograph movement delivers a substantial 60-hour power reserve and features a flyback function.
