Chopard present the Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Chronograph 2010.
Old grand prix cars never die…… they get tuned up and transported back to Monaco every two years for the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique. The Automobile Club of Monaco organise the biennial event and it serves as the perfect hors d’oeuvre for the F1 Grand Prix which screams through the streets of the Principality of Monaco two weeks later. Chopard are official timekeepers for the event which provides them with the opportunity to issue some very tasty race-inspired chronographs.
The Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique collection of watches are classically styled and slightly understated, perfect if you like precision accuracy without being too showy. The 2010 chronograph features subtle Monaco Historique branding on the dial and has the Automobile Club de Monaco logo engraved on the caseback. Early releases in this collection were only available in gold but since 2006 a stainless steel version has also been issued, both versions are again released this year, with the 18 carat rose gold edition limited to 250 pieces.
