Chopard Jacky Ickx Edition V Watch - Created for Lovers of Extraordinary Mechanisms

Sep 27, 2011
The timepiece market is delighted to welcome the new Chopard Jacky Ickx Edition V watch. It mirrors a close bond of friendship between racing driver Jacky Ickx and Chopard co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele.

Issued in a limited edition of 2000 pieces, the new Chopard watch pays tribute to the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race - one of the world’s most legendary automobile competitions. The novelty is executed in a 42.40 mm steel case, designed in sportive and distinctive style. It features a bezel, engraved with a tachometric scale.

The model is also equipped with a steel screw-lock crown and pushers. The top of the case is protected by a glare-proofed sapphire crystal. Its bottom features a 6/24 inscription. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 50 meters.

The new Chopard Jacky Ickx Edition V watch is complimented by a black dial. It indicates central hours and minutes by means of rhodium-plated Superluminova-applied hands. The small seconds tick away in a black counter at 3 o’clock.

The chronograph features are assured through a 24-hour sub-dial at 6 o’clock, a 60-minute counter at 9 o’clock as well as a central rhodium-plated sweep-seconds hand, tipped with a red arrow. The silver-toned chronograph counters are fitted with red hands. The display also offers stop seconds and fly-back functions as well as a date indication, shown in the upper part of the dial.

All the functions are driven by a mechanical self-winding movement, built on 49 jewels. Chronometer-certified by the COSC, it operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and supplies a 40-hour power reserve.

The new Chopard watch is accompanied by a black hand-sewn alligator leather strap, closed with a steel folding clasp.
