Chopard 8th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Vintage Race
By Arjun Sekhri & Romit Jethwaney — February 07, 2013
 
Since 2002, for the sixth time in a row, luxury brand Chopard has been official timekeeper of the GPMH; a two day event where every two years vintage cars from all across the world go head to head. 
 
Created in 1998 to mark the 700th anniversary of the Grimaldi family’s accession to the throne of the Principality, the GPMH is known to be the vintage counterpart to Formula 1 racing. Exclusive classic racing cars are selected, attracting motor racing enthusiasts from all over the world to witness the event.

Held two weeks before the F1 Monaco Grand Prix, the race takes place along the same stretch of 3.3km that the likes of Vettel and Schumacher take on every year. This year over 200 drivers participated representing 20 countries including celebrities Nick Mason, Tony Smith, Dieter Quester and Arturo Merzario. Car models included Lotus, Bugatti, Delage, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Maserati and Ferrari, as well as Formula 1 cars built before 1979 by brands such as Brabham, Lotis and Williams.

Chopard’s partnership with the GPMH reflects their compassion towards sporting excellence and heritage. In honor of the event, Chopard has created an extraordinary timepiece.
 
Equipped with a mechanical self-winding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2012 model displays the hours, minutes, small seconds and the date through an aperture, naturally complemented by chronograph functions and a tachometric scale. The 42.4 mm-diameter case provides glimpses of the mechanical movement through an exhibition back engraved with the inscription "Grand Prix de Monaco Historique”, and featuring a sapphire crystal bearing the insignia of the Automobile Club de Monaco.

Water-resistant to 50 metres and also issued in a special titanium and rose gold 500-piece limited edition, this watch is equipped with a strap featuring a pin buckle made of titanium – matching the typical lightness accredited to motor racing.
