“Official Timing Partner” of Porsche Motorsport since the return of the German team to the WEC championship 2014, Chopard supported again the German team for the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2017. Legendary teams, genuine passion, and an equally fabled circuit made this event another milestone in the history of motor-racing. On June 17 and 18, Porsche was fighting for its 19th victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans after an extraordinary last-minute triumph in 2016.
This year, Porsche reaffirmed its historic supremacy in motorsport and endurance racing. The 24-hour race just pushed both the mechanics and the team to the limit. The car #2 crossed the finish line in 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 series and embodying pure performance thanks to a new Chopard movement, the high-frequency Calibre 01.11-M
