Motorsport and timing are since there existence associated. That’s why Chopard has been serving as sponsor and official timekeeper of the Grand Prix de Monaco since 2002. For the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2014 Chopard is introducing a new watch collection.
The new collection of Grand Prix de Monaco Historique watches is composed of three instruments intended to support drivers. This complete high-performance range is composed of a chrono, an automatic model and a third with a power-reserve indicator, all dedicated to the most prestigious of the classic Grand Prix races. Crafted in steel and titanium, or steel, titanium and rose gold versions.
Three models, one spirit
The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Automatic watch has a COSC-certified self-winding calibre. It guarantees chronometric performance to match the demands of drivers and of Chopard itself. The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Power Control features a power-reserve indicator placed at 6 o’clock. Its appearance is directly inspired by petrol or oil gauges. Finally, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Chrono is the V12 of the family. This powerful, sleek and noble instrument is the driver’s watch par excellence. The three Grand Prix de Monaco Historique models stem from a shared platform and are distinguished by an entirely reconsidered and new design. The chassis is a 44.5 mm titanium case chosen for its slightness, its hardness and its compatibility. Its case-back is engraved with the Automobile Club de Monaco logo and for this reason it is made of steel which is better suited to engraving. The lugs have been redesigned to ensure enhanced comfort. But the most significant modifications relate to the dial, which features a grooved and snailed surface, thus creating an impression of constant movement reminiscent both of the sheer speed of racing cars and of chicane kerbs.
