Chopard Classic Racing Collection
Designed and manufactured like a perfectly engineered vintage automobile, the mechanical brilliance and passion combined to deliver the Chopard Classic Racing Collection timepieces. Because the brand is small and not part of a large conglomerate, they have flexibility in experimentation, and developing unique timepieces, ones that are not only quality pieces, but eye catching and remarkable.
While the ladies collections are magnificent, floating diamonds and glittering reflections, the men’s collections also offer some timeless pieces. The brand has worked to create the SuperFast, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique pieces as well as others in the Mile Miglia collection, all part of the Chopard Classic Racing Collection. Each piece has been developed with the utmost attention to precise chronography, as well as comfort and legibility.
Many customers want more of a statement on their wrist than a timepiece, but for this brand they would like the pieces to do both. The best finish is important, the fit is critical, and the attention to detail a common practice. The inner workings of the watches are mainly the Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750, which is not a top of the line movement, and is found in some of your less expensive watches, but a solid mechanism for good movement.
The brand has developed their own movements that are coming into play for the SuperFast watches in the collection, they are available in 18k rose gold and steel cases which are currently in development. For the Chopard Classic Racing Collection these in house movements set the stage for future development, and secure the brand customers some level of savings. The cases on these timepieces are 45mm wide and 42mm wide, with bulging screw bays, engraved vertical trenches and vulcanized rubber for the crown and pushers.
The Caliber 01.01-M automatic is being used for the new models, just differing configurations, and the 03.05-M automatic is the new column-wheel chronograph. Using gray colored bridges with cutting lines the timepiece offers more of a see through look so the mechanics can be viewed and admired. The brand has worked hard to achieve these wonderful new watches, bring the world some cool watches, and keep precision as a priority. Any of the pieces in the collection would prove a wonderful addition to your wrist, and yes they can keep time as well.
