The close ties between the worlds of motor racing and watchmaking are distinctly legendary and Chopard has played a significant role in strengthening the thread via its exclusive racing collections. Each watch pays tribute to the world of the fast and the furious by incorporating features symbolic of the cars and races that they each represent. While a deep passion for mechanical engineering has led the brand to the doorstep of numerous iconic innovations and pioneering firsts, Chopard’s participation in and support of famous classic rallies embodies the unique relationship that it shares with racing.
One man, one machine; strapped up in the best racing car right before the race, all that matters for both is the precision, the engineering and the focus involved. And here’s where Chopard’s Classic Racing Superfast Chrono proves its mettle.
