Chopard Pays Tribute to the Vintage Racing Circuit

Playing to one of its proven strengths in design, Chopard has released a new automotive-themed chronograph dedicated to the vintage racing circuit. The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique ($11,140) pays homage to the Monte Carlo event that is best known for the exciting performance of 1960 and ’70s Formula One cars. Suitably, the piece is housed in a case subtly designed with the racing aesthetic of the 1970s, including orange accents and stitching, dial striping, and a reverse crystal decorated with the insignia of the Automobile Club de Monaco.
