Chopard Superfast Chrono Split Second
The Superfast collection might go nicely with the all new Ferrari Superfast since they both share the same name. It is the superlative sports collection from remembering the Mille Miglia races.
Everything about this timepiece is reminiscent of motor sports. Chronometer-certified by the COSC, its split-second chronograph movement enabling measurement of intermediate or “split” times makes it an indispensable dashboard instrument for all aficionados of fine mechanisms.
The Classic Racing Superfast Chrono Split Seconds evokes the distinctive world of period car races, starting with the famous Dunlop Racing strap featuring a design reflecting the tread of the eponymous 1960s racing tyres. It is made of natural rubber and fitted with a folding clasp. The dial evokes the counters on vintage racing cars, while the minute markers on the flange are reminiscent of the numerals adorning the rev counters and speedometers.
The imposing case of the Superfast Chrono in stainless steel gives it a powerful presence on the wrist thanks to an assertive personality. Its contemporary design, luxurious finishing, column-wheel chronograph, unique see-through engine finish on its chronometer-certified movement and 60-hour power reserve place it at the very peak of the Classic Racing collection.
