A tribute to an unparalleled event
The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique collection from Chopard
The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is a unique automobile event, which is focused on historic motorsports and the racing of classic cars. The automobile race has been held once every two years since 1997. With an average speed of 150km/hr., the old-timer race takes place through the legendary circuit of Monaco. Perfectly maintained automobiles and the highest levels of concentration and caution are required for the classic car race, as the automobiles driven are less reliable compared to current race cars.
Chopard has been the official timekeeper and sponsor of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique since 2002. The Swiss watchmaker celebrates the bold participants of the prestigious race event who have spent a long duration of time dismantling, repairing, and adjusting their automobiles in order to perform with precision in an outstanding event. The Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique watch collection (GPMH) is inspired by the traditional race and impresses with fine mechanics, precision, and aesthetics.
The Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Collection
The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique collection is composed of three different models, each of which is available in three variations. All watches from the line are COSC certified, which verifies the timepiece as a genuine chronometer and ensures its precision and accuracy. The high precision of the movement has heightened Chopard into the ranks of official timekeeper of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique.
/The model G.P.M.H. Chrono has been reduced to the essentials. The mechanical movement is equipped with an automatic movement and a power reserve of 46 hours. The housing of the timepiece is comprised of robust titanium and stainless steel. Furthermore, the timepiece incorporates a handy date display. The colour scheme of the watch is reminiscent of race cars from the 70s with grey dials and yellow details. Yellow elements also indicate rapid manoeuvres and provide the timepiece with a sporty look. The Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Chronograph is fitted with the option of a stainless steel bracelet or a black leather strap. The G.P.M.H. Chrono is also presented in a model that waives yellow elements for a bezel and crown that are comprised of elegant rose gold.
/The G.P.M.H. Automatic is modelled after vintage race cars and is mainly comprised of titanium and stainless steel. This model, however, is not a chronograph but a three-pointer timepiece with a date display at the 3 o’clock position. The model can optionally be selected with a stainless steel bracelet and rose gold applications.
/A dial fitted with luminous hands and indices, which guarantees perfect readability in poorly lit environments, distinguishes the G.P.M.H. Power Control from other models in the collection. The model name indicates the practical power reserve indicator of the timepiece, which is located on the lower half of the dial. A similar model from Maison Chopard is the popular Chopard Superfast Power Control, which was also inspired by the field of motorsports. The Chopard Superfast series was in fact designed to celebrate the return of Porsche to Le Mans.
A watch for race car enthusiasts
Chopard pays tribute to the classic car race with the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique collection. The timepieces of the collection are inspired by passion, ambition, courage, and optimal performance. Race fans are impressed with both the overall design and technical advantages of the Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco watches. With a timepiece from the collection, wearers are taken back to the elegant and classic single-seater automobiles from the 1970s.
The Chopard brand presents the Chopard G.P.M.H. timepieces in a variation of models that can be suited to different styles or preferences. Whether favoured with a leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet, grey-yellow design components or elements of rose gold – the Chopard G.P.M.H can be suited to any taste. The particularly catchy models are complemented with characteristic yellow racing stripes.
The Chopard watch manufacturer
Swiss craftsmanship and innovative designs
With the development of each timepiece, Chopard draws on centuries of past experience in Haute Horlogerie. Louis-Ulysse Chopard founded the company over 150 years ago in Sonvilier, Switzerland. He created his timepieces with passion and diligence from the very start. He ventured out to expand the Chopard name and the high-quality timepieces that come along with it. He especially discovered enthusiastic clientele in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.
In 1963, the company was taken over by Karl Scheufele in Pforzheim. The spirit of the company has remained unchanged since Chopard has continued to be synonymous with first-class Swiss craftsmanship and innovative designs.
