Chopard is one of the world’s most renowned watchmakers, but it’s also the “Official Timing Partner” of Porsche. In order to show its support for Porsche during the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2016, the company has released the exquisite Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Black Edition – a special timepiece that’s limited to just 100 units.
Inspired by the brand new Porsche 919 Hybrid, the watch comes with a 45mm titanium case that boasts a black DLC treatment as well as a water resistance of 328 feet. The bezel impresses with a lacquered titanium tachymetric scale, and it sits firmly in place thanks to eight PVD-coated screws. The grooves present on the case remind us of the cooling fins of racecar engines, while a red 919 logo on the hours counter is identical to the numbers stamped on Porsche Hybrid competition cars. The black rubber strap was inspired by competition racing tires, and it includes a DLC-coated titanium folding clasp.
