Chopard - Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Jacky Ickx Edition

| No comment
Chopard is the Official Timing Partner of Porsche Motorsport since 2014,  when the German racing team came back to endurance competition.

To celebrate the partnership, Chopard introduced the Superfast Chronograph, a 919 limited edition timepiece inspired by the Porsche 919 Hybrid competing in the World Endurance Championship LMP1 category.

This year, on occasion of the 24 Hours of Le Mans prestigious race, Chopard released a 100-piece special edition dedicated to Jacky Ickx, the legendary former racing driver who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans six times, achieved eight wins and 25 podium finishes in Formula One, won the Can-Am Championship in 1979 and the Paris-Dakar Rally in 1983.

The Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Jacky Ickx Edition maintains the 45 mm stainless steel case which houses the mechanical Chopard 03.05-M calibre, a 4Hz (28,800 vph) COSC-certified chronometer with a power reserve of 60 hours.

Water-resistant to 100 meters, the case features a bezel bearing a tachymetric scale and secured by eight blackened screws. The crown is adorned with a black rubber-moulded steering-wheel motif.

The dial displays the colours of the racing helmet worn by Jacky Ickx: a silver-toned background with an inner bezel ring and counters in dark blue dotted with white touches. The indications of the flyback chronograph function can be easily recognised for their red accents. The legibility is excellent in any light conditions because the metallic black hours/minutes hands and hour-markers are treated with Super-LumiNova.

Differently from the 2014 edition, this new model dedicated to Jacky Ickx features a solid case back engraved with the inscriptions "Official Timing Partner Porsche Motorsport" and "Jacky Ickx Limited Edition".

The Chopard Superfast Chrono Porsche 919 Jacky Ickx Edition (ref. 168535-3003) is matched to a black rubber strap with a slick tyre tread motif secured by a polished steel folding clasp. Retail price is around Euro 10,900.
