No other manufacturer than Porsche has managed to win the world’s toughest endurance race so many times (19 times) and is so closely connected to the myth of Le Mans. We are extremely proud to be a partner of the Porsche Motorsport team!
This year, Porsche reaffirmed its historic supremacy in motorsport and endurance racing. The 24-hour race just pushed both the mechanics and the drivers to the limits. The car #2 crossed the finish line on the first position, sealing an outstanding victory for the team after a technical defection of two Toyota’s cars during the night at mid-race. Building on its close ties with Porsche Motorsport, Chopard presents the Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 HF Edition, produced in a 100-piece limited serie and embodying pure performance thanks to a new Chopard movement, the high-frequency Calibre 01.11-M.
On this occasion, Mr. Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, Co-President of Chopard said: “The ‘triple victory in Le Mans is a dream come true for Porsche and Chopard. I am totally delighted about this final victory achieved by our outstanding partner team: Porsche Motorsport! I can’t believe the team managed to take the trophy back home after an hour in the pit-box. We are very proud to contribute to pilots’ and team’s performance and run after time using their Superfast watches.”
This year, Chopard unveiled a new watch, the Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 HF Edition, a 100-piece limited serie. Exclusively available in Chopard boutiques, the new Chopard high-frequency watch epitomises pure performance lightness, efficiency, technicality. The Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 HF Edition is a tribute from the Maison to its partner Porsche Motorsport’s success in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). It has a lot in common with the car that has been monopolising the podium at the latest championship events: the Porsche 919 Hybrid.
