At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Chopard announced it will accompany Porsche Motorsport in their awaited return to the LMP1 Endurance Championship. Discover exclusive interviews of Mark Webber (now Porsche 919 Hybrid Driver), Jacky Ickx (6 times winner of Le Mans) and Karl-Friedrich Scheufele (Co-President of Chopard).
A legendary team in the world of motor racing, Porsche Motorsport has chosen to partner with Chopard. For its big return to competition, the new Porsche 919 Hybrid is taking part in the World Endurance Championship (LMP1 class). It is also participating in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a mythical race that Porsche has already won 16 times.
To celebrate Porsche’s return to Le Mans, Chopard unveils a special Porsche 919 limited edition based on the Superfast Chrono bodywork. Its dial echoes various details of the Porsche 919 Hybrid, which will compete in the LMP1 Endurance World Championship. Stamped with the 919 logo at 9 o’clock, the silver color is reminiscent of the prestigious Porsche color. The black and red touches perfectly match the hybrid race car. On the back, the “Porsche Motorsport Official Timing Partner” logo is proudly placed on the glass. Thanks to the arena case back, the Chopard movement and its exclusive open-worked bridges can still be easily admired. This exceptional model is a limited and numbered series of 919.
The sporty, sophisticated, powerful and imposing Superfast Automatic, Power Control and Chrono are all equipped with Chopard movements, which are produced in the Fleurier Ebauches workshops. All the bridges are openworked with thin parallel lines in the style of cooling vents on sports cars - an unusual finish which allows the inner workings of the movement to be tirelessly admired through the transparent case-back.
Fleurier Ebauches SA’s new factory comprises 5,100m2 of manufacturing surface where four production stages are integrated: machining, decoration, jewel fitting and assembly. With its manufacturing surface of 5,100m2, the building meets the strictest ecological standards, earning the “Minergie” label.
The imposing case of Superfast models is taken from cooling fins on racing engines which gives them a powerful presence on the wrist thanks to a boldly assertive personality.
