BLANCPAIN SUPER TROFEO CHRONOGRAPH
To celebrate these superlative races, the Manufacture in Le Brassus is presenting a Super Trofeo flyback chronograph. Limited to 300 per year, meaning 50 per race, this new Blancpain chronograph displays state-of-the-art design and all the attributes of cutting-edge technology. The case specifically designed for this prestigious line is inspired by the sleek profile of the Lamborghini Gallardo. Crafted in steel coated with a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) treatment, the 43.5 mm-diameter case that is water-resistant to 100 metres features alternating satin-brushed and polished surfaces.
At this heart of this new sophisticated and performance-oriented case, the Blancpain Super Trofeo Chronograph lies its throbbing “engine”, Calibre F185. The mechanical self-winding Calibre F185 powers a range of functions including hour, minute, small seconds and date display at 6 o’clock, as well as the chronograph indications with a central sweep seconds hand, 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock. For instant-measurement enthusiasts, the Calibre F185 also drives a “flyback” function.
The unmistakable black dial is distinguished by two red and white 9 and 12 o’clock numerals stylised to evoke the numbers painted on the 30 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 racing cars. Another exclusive feature of this exceptional model is its gold oscillating weight engraved with the inscription “Super Trofeo 2009”.
A sports model through and through, the Blancpain Super Trofeo Chronograph is teamed with a strap in alcantara – like the seats in the Lamborghini Gallardo – secured by a steel folding clasp.
