Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo Watch Collection by Chopard and Alfa Romeo

In order to mark the celebration of 150 years of Chopard and 100 years of Alfa Romeo, the two companies announced the release of the Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo watch collection.

The new collections are available in three versions: as automatic C.O.S.C. chronometer, featuring a 44mm stainless steel case, or as the Chopard Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo C.O.S.C. Chronograph, available in two versions – in 44 mm stainless steel or cool Diamond-Like-Carbon (DLC).

The Chopard Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo has a standard three-hand dial layout, while the Chopard GT XL Chrono Alfa Romeo features a normal tri-compass chronograph with a 12-hour totalizer located at 6 o`clock, a 30-minute counter positioned at 12 o`clock and a small second display placed at 9 o`clock.

The central chronograph second hand can be utilized with the tachymeter scale on the bezel. The dial incorporates a date window at 3 o`clock and a magnifying lens crafted into the sapphire glass.

All models feature a Dunlop “radial” tire pattern natural rubber strap. To speed up the race, the Alfa Romeo logo in rosso red on the black dial is completed with the other combinations of red, white, black and steel. The hands and indices are also rendered in the strong red color.

The case is supported by AR-coated sapphire crystal front and sapphire crystal back. All watches from the Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo collection are 100-meter water-resistant.

The timepieces are powered by the self-winding movements which are chronometer-certified by the C.O.S.C. The beating rate is of 28,800 vibrations per hours. The mechanism provides 48-hour power reserve.

In addition to the three wristwatches, Chopard and Alfa Romeo fans will also enjoy the travel clock and the table clock, a tribute paid to the Gran Turismo XL watch. Therefore, each timepiece will come with a jet-black PVD-treated travel quartz alarm clock packed in black leather with red stitches, or with a quartz table clock made of stainless steel.

The chronograph versions and the three-hand models from Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo collections will be limited to 500 pieces each, while the DLC-coated model will comprise only 100 pieces.
