Porsche Motorsport this year decided to partner with Swiss watchmaker Chopard for its grand comeback to competition in the LMP1 Endurance World Championship with its 919 Porsche Hybrid. To celebrate Porsche’s return to Le Mans, Chopard unveils a special Porsche 919 limited edition chronograph reflecting the design codes of the hybrid racecar.
This stunning sports watch comes in a 45mm steel case featuring a dial with black and red accents to evoke a sense of the car’s rear diffuser, screw-locked crown with black rubber-clad steering wheel motif and “919” logo stamped at 9 o’clock.
The sapphire case-back of the watch is engraved with “Porsche Motorsport Official Timing Partner” inscription, allowing the wearer and others to admire the movement and its exclusive open-worked bridges.
With Chopard 03.05-M calibre, chronometer-certified by the COSC, the watch offers a power reserve of 60 hours and a fly-back chronograph function.
The Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition will be released this fall with each of them priced at $12,890.
