Chopard have added a split seconds timer to their Racing Superfast range, in a 1000 model special edition.
The split seconds function (aka ‘Rattrapante’) effectively has two seconds hands.
You can stop them independently of each other, enabling recording of an intermediate (split) time.
When released, the split seconds hand catches up with the main chrono hand, and you can start all over again.
The movement to enable this magic is a COSC certified automatic chronograph, with a power reserve of 42 hours.
The watch itself comes on a 45mm blackened DLC case.
You also get moulded rubber pushers – red for the split seconds – a vintage steering wheel emblem on the crown and ‘wheel-nut’ screws on the bezel.
It comes shod with a Dunlop tyre style rubber strap.
