To coincide with the Le Mans 24-hour endurance automobile race this season, also in a continuation of its connection as the official time associate of the Porsche group, Chopard replica watch has established the limited edition Chopard Superfast Power Control replica watches Porsche 919 HF Edition watch. Motorsport and limited edition watches are not any new thing, however this specific Chopard watch stands out because of a new high-frequency automatic motion, since the HF component of the title references.
As a guideline, the greater the frequency, the more precise the timekeeping potential along with the smoother the sweep of the hand — with a few cases like the ones from Bulova working at 262kHz and supplying a precision of a couple of seconds each year. But high-frequency is a comparative term. There are exceptions, obviously, using Zenith’s 5Hz El Primero moves being the most famous. The brand new caliber 01.11-M out of Chopard Superfast replica watches, however, pushes this envelope farther by working at 57,600bph or 8Hz.
That is impressive for 2 reasons. High-frequency moves are usually avoided since they can lead to wear and tear considerably faster and heavily tax the energy book of their motion. In the majority of modern mass-produced movements (believe ETA 2824 or Valjoux 7750) 28,800bph has been proven to be the ideal balance between electricity reserve, speed of wear, and precision of timekeeping — that the smoothness of the next hand sweep could be regarded as an additional advantage. Using a silicon escapement indicates that tear and wear needs to be mitigated relative to some conventional escapement but it’s way too early to actually understand the answer to this question. What we do understand is that Chopard Superfast chrono imitation watch has managed to tackle the power book issue with an extremely decent 60 hours of power reserve from the grade 01.11-M.
Among the greatest obsessions in motorsports is lightweight, high-energy substances, as well as also the Chopard Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 HF Edition includes a DLC-coated and bead-blasted ceramic situation to match with that subject. In 45mm wide by 12.4mm thick, this isn’t a little watch, but if wear considerably lighter and more easily due to the ceramic. The situation has a few interesting design elements, such as the front bezel that is screwed down with eight hex screws along with the stripes on the sides. While it is not unusual for cases made of materials such as aluminum and titanium to get bezels which are screwed into place rather than pressed, it is uncommon to have the screws observable and on daring display. It will, however, improve the rugged appearance that Chopard Superfast split second imitation watch is apparently heading for. The screw-down crown is made of rubber to improve traction, using a metal steering wheel add carrying the position of the customary logo engraving.
That view, however, doesn’t possess the brand new high-frequency motion, and it’s this motion that I think makes this view so intriguing and makes it stand out from the rest of the motorsport-inspired timepieces we have seen. The Chopard Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 HF Edition includes a black rubber band, is limited to 100 bits, and can be obtained only from Chopard stalls for $16,990.
