Partnering the Porsche Motorsport LMP1 team since its return to the Endurance championship in 2014, Chopard is launching a limited series to celebrate the many successes achieved by the Stuttgart-based manufacturer in the World Endurance Championship. Thanks to the 919 Hybrid, Porsche won back-to-back titles in 2015 and 2016. In tribute to this incredible embodiment of technology, power and efficiency, Chopard has transposed its virtues into an all-black-clad high-frequency chronometer. The Chopard Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 HF Edition stems from the performance-driven culture characterising both Chopard and Porsche Motorsport.
The technologies used by Chopard to create Superfast watches bear strong similarities to those featured on the Porsche 919. The car chassis is made of aluminium and carbon fibre composite to ensure maximum lightness and rigidity. The Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 HF Edition is made of beadblasted titanium that is ultra-light, comfortable and resistant. The latter quality is reinforced by a black DLC treatment based on the technical possibilities afforded by carbon and rendering this timepiece virtually scratchproof.
The Porsche 919 is powered by a 2-litre, 400hp V4 turbo engine, coupled with a 500hp electric engine. Chopard calibre 01.11-M is also a hybrid. It was entirely developed, produced and assembled within the workshops of Fleurier Ebauches and represents a watershed between two generations of materials. It is made of brass and steel, with a silicon oxide escapement at its heart.
Chopard Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 HF Edition (168593-3001) is manufactured only as a 100-piece limited edition
