Each year, Chopard is involved in the 1000-mile race from Brescia to Rome.
According to the company’s co-chairman Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, who is a fan of classic racing cars, lovers of beautiful cars have a natural weakness to high-quality wristwatches and vice versa. In both cases, sophisticated engineering, outstanding design and high functionality are particularly important. In this case, the clock must be agile and very athletic, a mechanism which should ensure maximum accuracy, which is necessary for timing during the race.
