Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Chronograph 2012
Official timekeeper of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, Chopard. is hitting the market again with a timepiece that combines matte grey finish with racing stripes and neon pops of color. The watch, reportedly named the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2012, is actually a tribute to the racing cars from the 70s, in sporty clothing.
The union between the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique and the House of Chopard has come to life during 2002, and, thanks to high standards, top notch technology and dying passion for fine mechanics, it has lasted ever since. Thanks to this, a huge number of timepieces now form a collection entirely dedicated to everything that means racing and high speeds.
The current model boasts a titanium case with an anthracite dial, showing off an incredibly superb contrast with bright tones, blue or orange, almost like reviving the seconds hand and hour markers. As a reminder of the 70s traditions and technologies, the strapping is made of grey Barenia calfskin and comes with contrasting orange stitching.
The timepiece sports a COSC-certified mechanical self-winding chronometer, enclosed in the large 42.4 millimeter casing. The movement can be finely viewed through the window in the reverse side. The inscription “Grand Prix de Monaco Historique” is clearly visible on the edge of the case-back. In addition, an elegant sapphire crystal, marked with the insignia of the Automobile Club de Monaco is clearly visible through the respective window.
Bearing a titanium-pin buckle on the strapping and 50 meter depth water resistance, the watch is available in rose gold and titanium. Be quick, though, as it’s a 500 unit limited edition.
