The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique chronograph is very clearly a racing watch. With its matt titanium case, the beautiful yellow detailing and its racing style strap, it wonderfully evokes the golden days of Formula 1 from the past. On your wrist in the cockpit of your car this watch will be like your instrument panel on your wrist.
For the seventh consecutive year, Chopard is the sponsor and official timekeeper of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique. On the weekend of May 10th – 11th 2014, the city of Monaco will be buzzing with the sound track of former Formula 1 racing cars as well as old-timer Ferraris, Bugatti and other models. Traditionally, Chopard presents a chronograph in homage to each edition of this race which takes place every two years. However, this time Chopard has chosen to develop a completly new Grand Prix de Monaco Historique collection, of which the central chronograph piece is the first model to be revealed.
Myself and Lady Peanut are lucky enough to be going to the 2014 Historique Grand Prix, so it goes without saying that this delightfully crafted Chopard model has shot straight into our top ten of we want muchly watches.
