Debut: Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2016 Race Editions

Recommended Posts


The 2016 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique just wrapped up, with drivers and automobile fans brought together for another fund competition featuring exceptional vintage racing cars.  Since 2002, Chopard has served as sponsor and official timekeeper of the biennial Grand Prix de Monaco Historique.  As such, Chopard always dedicates a special timepiece (or two) to the prestigious race.  Presented here are the two 2016 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique race editions by Chopard.  Wonderful Watches Replica Replica with great materials, colors and strap options!

Case material aside, both pieces share several racing-inspired design elements:  pushers shaped like engine pistons, a grey bezel with a tachymetric scale, and a screwed caseback engraved with the Automobile Club de Monaco logo secured with specially designed screws that are reminiscent of bolts.
The silver-toned, snailed dial is enlivened by the darker-tone grey and silver-toned chronograph counters and blue hands, while the minute ring is punctuated by applied hour-markers featuring the collection’s characteristic arrow shape.
Two interchangeable straps are included:   a beautiful perforated Barenia calfskin strap with orange or blue accent stitching, and a grey NATO strap bearing orange or blue racing stripes for a more relaxed style.


On a related note — Chopard will also again partner with another major racing event, the annual Mille Miglia, in Italy.  In addition to serving as world sponsor and official timekeeper of the vintage car rally, Chopard has launched the newest limited edition Watch Replica in the Mille Miglia timepiece collection – the Mille Miglia 2016 XL Race Edition.  We’ll take a look at this new piece, very soon.
