Chopard celebrates Porsche Motorsport’s 2015 titles in Kuwait

Posted on December 20, 2015 at 2:32 PM by / 0

Chopard along with partner Trafalgar Company launched a two-week Porsche Motorsport exhibition at the renowned The Avenues Mall in Kuwait, enabling all visitors to discover the avant-garde Porsche 919 Hybrid that led Porsche Motorsport to win the 2015 WEC World Champion title.

Situated in the luxurious The Avenues Mall, guests were able to contemplate the Porsche 919 Hybrid as well as discover the Chopard Superfast watches that will be exhibited on the Porsche Motorsport stand for two weeks.

For the second year in a row, Chopard is the Official Timing Partner of Porsche Motorsport. Perfectly in line with the spirit of Chopard’s Superfast watch collection, this prestigious partnership is an extension of the company longstanding commitment to automotive sports. In 2014, Chopard became “Official Timing Partner” of Porsche Motorsport for the German racing team’s grand comeback to endurance competition. That same year, to celebrate this exclusive partnership, Chopard launched a new Superfast chronograph inspired by the Porsche 919 Hybrid competing in the World Endurance Championship LMP1 category: the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition.

This imposingly sized chronograph with its 45 mm-diameter case and flyback function beats to the pace of a mechanical Chopard 03.05-M calibre, chronometer-certified by the COSC. This engine and its oscillating weight may be admired through a sapphire crystal engraved with the inscription “Official Timing Partner Porsche Motorsport”. Inspired by the new Porsche 919 Hybrid, the stripes on the dial evoke the racing car’s rear diffuser. Likewise, the “919” appearing in a red rectangle inside a 9 o’clock subdial is identical to the number of the Porsche racing cars. Finally, the rubber strap is inspired by slick tyres serving to negotiate bends at extremely high speeds.

This sophisticated and powerful Superfast chronograph proclaims a highly exclusive nature that is a perfect match for the legendary Porsche cars, since the Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Edition from Chopard is produced in a strictly limited 919-piece series reserved for those who are quick off the mark!
