Gearing up to the 24 hours of Le Mans
Chopard, Official Timing Partner of Porsche Motorsport, invites you to share its passion for racing on Level 1 in the Airside Center until 28 June 2015.
"People say that lovers of fine cars also have a great weakness for fine timepieces and vice versa. In both cases, sporting elegance and outstanding performance are especially important."
The words spoken in 1988 by Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele – himself a dedicated car enthusiast – upon launching the first Mille Miglia collection ring as true today as ever. The brand’s participation in many famous rallies embodies a unique relationship between Chopard and racing.
The close ties between these two worlds have been strengthened ever since, largely due to the impressive number of common denominators that naturally draw them together. These include constant innovation, a tireless quest for performance and excellence, unfailing respect for traditions, the supreme importance of details – and of course a shared passion for mechanical engineering.
In 2014, as a logical extension of its longstanding commitment to automotive sports, Chopard became the proud Official Timing Partner of Porsche Motorsport. The Geneva watchmaker is thus accompanying the long-awaited return of Porsche Motorsport to the FIA World Endurance Championship, with the 24 Hours of Le Mans race as the highlight event.
Chopard is delighted to invite you to an exclusive exhibition on Level 1 of the Airside Center until 28 June 2015, where you will be able to walk around a life-size reproduction of the Porsche LMP1 919 Hybrid, while admiring the Swiss watchmaker's impressive collection of sports watches.
