Chopard Classic Racing Watch

       A prestigious luxury goods manufacturer, created in the 19th century, by a visionary spirit of his time, Louis-Ulysse Chopard, Chopard is internationally known for designing high-class exquisite jewelry, elegant accessories and superb luxury wristwatches defined by unmatched distinction and mechanical sophistication.

       Through the years, the brand experienced a privileged partnership with the adrenalin-inflicting world of motor sports, and created countless watches inspired by the sporty design of classic racecars. Among the watch-connoisseurs who share their profound passion for high-end sophisticated timepieces, with deep passion for car rallies, it is well known that Chopard produced one of the most beautiful watches dedicated to 1000 Mille Miglia Race, to the famous pilot Jacky Ickx, or to Grand Prix de Monaco Circuit.


       Especially created for a charismatic, contemporary man, with an active life style, the new creation of the brand, Chopard Classic Racing Watch boasts powerful racy design, and highly masculine individuality.

       The timepiece features a robust 18-karat rose gold case, measuring 45 mm in diameter, which demonstrates a nice combination of brushed and polished surfaces and that ensures a remarkable water-resistance of 100 meters. Furthermore, the sophisticated architecture of the case incorporates rectangular chronograph push pieces and a rubber molded screw-lock crown with a sophisticated tire finish that matches the design of the brand’s signature rubber strap with the 1960s Dunlop Racing pattern. Another eye-catching sophisticated feature of the timepiece is the rose-gold side of the case inspired by classic automotive engine cooling fans, a motif carried into the design of the dial, fitted with stylish rhodium-plated vertical lines. The case of the bold timepiece incorporates a screw-down bezel fitted with a tachometer scale.


       Furthermore, the design of the chronograph counters and hour indices also draws its inspiration from the dashboards of classic automotives. The watch features elegant 18-karat rose gold hours and minutes hands fitted with luminescent coating for optimal time-legibility in poor light conditions, while the central chronograph seconds hand can easily be identified due to a sporty red tip.

       At the heart of this remarkable timepiece beats a COSC-chronometer certified, high precision self-winding mechanical chronograph movement that provides central hours, minutes and seconds functions, as well as small seconds chronograph located at 3 o’clock, 12-hours counter, at 6 o’clock and 30-minutes counter, located at 9 o’clock position, also it displays date at 6 o’clock.


       A timepiece defined by unmatched mechanical sophistication, the superb Chopard Classic Racing Watch belongs to a limited edition of only 500 pieces, and it will be available for an approximate price tag of $20,100.00.
