The Watch: As part of its collaboration with Porsche Motorsport as Official Timing Partner, Chopard presents the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition dedicated to the new 24 Hours of Le Mans winning Porsche 919 Hybrid.
The Standout Factor: 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 can be viewed 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. The rubber strap is inspired by slick tyres serving to negotiate bends at extremely high speeds.
The Price: Rs. 8,60,000
