Porsche and Chopard honor Le Mans with limited edition time pieces

The 84th edition of 24 Hours of Le Mans saw Chopard’s Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition, a 100-piece limited edition chronograph. Inspired by the new Porsche 919 Hybrid, the watch will be available only at Chopard boutiques. The 45mm titanium case of the timepiece is one of the most favored materials to be used in the world of endurance racing. Further bead-blasted and blackened by DLC treatment, the case carries a classy sheen and ensures that it is resistant to scratches. The durability extends below the water’s surface as well, making the watch submergible up to 100 meters.

The bezel is studded with eight blackened screws while the crown is fashioned to resemble a steering wheel. Two distinctly red rubber pushers flank the dial. The car analogy is taken further in the case middle, which is made to resemble the cooling fins in the car’s engine.
The watch is powered by a Chopard Caliber 03.05M. Other important features include a 60-minute power reserve and a flyback function. The mechanical self-winding chronograph movement has been COSC certified. The very rare blend of endurance racing and time-telling will retail for about $14,370.
