The spirit of the superfast watch

  • The movements are assembled according to a computer-aided process developed by Lecureux for Fleurier Ébauches SA in the controlled atmosphere of the top floor.
  • Fleurier Ébauches SA had six different movements designed, developed and produced, based on two self-winding calibers – an integrated instant-restart chronograph and a plain self-winding movement – with two types of finishes: sunburst satin-brushed and openwork bridges.
  • Superfast timepieces are certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). Superfast Automatic, Superfast Power Control and Superfast Chrono are the first watches in the iconic Classic Racing collection to be equipped with in-house movements from our Fleurier Ébauches workshop.

Porsche Motorsport

 

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 will take part in the World Endurance Championship (LMP1 class). It will also participate in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a mythical race that Porsche has already won 16 times.

EMBRACE POWER
  • Movements entirely designed, developed and assembled in-house. These creations represent a further step in the path towards independence.
  • Displaying hours, minutes and seconds and the date through a window at 6 o'clock, the new Superfast Automatic is equipped with a self-winding Chopard Calibre 01.01-M. This caliber is chronometer-certified by the COSC and has an ample 60-hour power reserve.
  • Another variation on this exceptional movement also drives the Superfast Power Control model. This Chopard Calibre 01.02-M offers a range of functions including hours, minutes and small seconds at 6 o'clock and a power reserve indicator in a sector-type display at 9 o'clock.
  • Boasting an annual production capacity of 5,000 movements in 2012 (expected 15,000 per year by 2015), Fleurier Ébauches expresses the determination of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele to strengthen the group's vertical integration to ensure independence.
  • Equally powerful and equipped with a 45-mm-diameter case, the Superfast Chrono houses a Chopard Calibre 03.05-M, a mechanical self-winding movement displays hours, minutes and seconds, as well as a chronograph.
  • “Fast is fine but accuracy is everything.” - Wyatt EARP, western Frontier Law Enforcement Officer (1848-1929).

  • Witness the refinement displayed in every detail of its exterior. The case is water-resistant to 100 meters and its sides are engraved with a linear pattern evoking the cooling systems on classic cars.
  • The characteristics reflecting its exceptional personality include the bezel engraved with a tachometric scale and secured to the case-middle by eight black screws, along the oversized 12 o'clock numeral adorning the dial.
  • All the bridges are openworked with thin parallel lines reminiscent of sports car cooling vents – an unusual finish which allows the inner workings of the movement to be tirelessly admired through the transparent case-back.
