CHOPARD – GRAND PRIX DE MONACO HISTORIQUE 2016 RACE EDITION
Introducing the Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2016 Race Edition
2002, Chopard has been the partner and official timekeeper of the highly prestigious Grand Prix de Monaco Historique since 2002. The competition brings classic cars from the 30s-70s together every two years and is hosted by the Automobile Club de Monaco. Chopard has designed a special edition in rose gold or titanium and steel to celebrate the 10th race: Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2016 Race Edition.
Its 44.5mm case has pushers reminiscent of engine pistons. The COSC-certified self-winding movement fuels a 46-hour power reserve as well as the time, (hours and minutes in the centre, small seconds at 9), date (at 3) and chronograph functions.
The grey counters lie on the silver dial: minutes at 12, hours at 6 and seconds tracked by a blue or orange central seconds hand depending on the model.
Price: 21,300 CHF (rose gold) – 6,890 CHF (titanium and steel) chopard.com
