The Four Commandments of The GPMH Winner
Every two years since 1997, over six decades of automobile history converge in Monaco for speed trials in real conditions. Adrenaline, danger and charm all make one in the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, a speed race like no other where vintage cars roar along the exact same route as the Formula 1 Grand Prix. This year marks the 10th edition of this most prestigious event.
Driven by his love for historical cars, a GPMH runner combines performance with heritage. Legendary cars from Pre-World-War II to 1976 compete in the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, and most of them have been part of Formula 1 Grand Prix from theses eras. On May 13, 14 and 15, Chopard will be at the heart of the action as the race’s official timekeeper, an honor that has been given to us since 2002.
Do you have the soul of a GPMH driver? Follow our 4 commandments to be an achiever, like the daring competitors of this legendary race.
- BY CHALLENGES YOU WILL BE DRIVEN:
Winning is the ultimate goal of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique drivers. Life seems flat when challenges are not part of the deal! One key word: achieve. Whether it is a car competition or a business endeavor, be confident in your assets, strong and focused. Time for action.
- YOUR STYLE STATEMENT THE PAST WILL BE:
No room for nostalgia, the key is to keep the best from the past. Cars with pure classy lines, roaring engines and a gift for speed, there is pure awesomeness in the 70s vibe of the cars that compete for the prize. What about transposing this spirit to the style territory? Think architectural blazers in elegant tartan with elbow patches to follow your moves, elegant raw denims and classic oxford shoes. The watch is not the final addition to the outfit but its central element, a true adventure companion, like the Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2016 Limited Edition in stainless steel and titanium or 18K rose gold.
- DARING AND BOLD YOU WILL BE:
It requires talent and passion but most of all fearlessness to dare to compete on the world’s most dangerous circuit with a historical car! Be bold and intrepid: life has much to give when you dare to pursue your passion.
PRECISION YOU WILL ALWAYS DEMAND:
For Chopard, the automobile world and watchmaking are all part of the same universe of sophisticated and accomplished mechanical engineering. As the official timekeeper of the race since 2002, Chopard shares the drivers’ passion for high-precision mechanics and for exceptional objects. “We owed it to ourselves to be associated with a sport where every second is precious in achieving outstanding performance”, said Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele.
When choosing a watch that will follow you in your most daring adventures, make sure to think high precision and performance. Available on a NATO or a leather strap, Chopard’s Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2016 COSC-certified chronographs are infused with the technical spirit of classic racing and designed to support drivers during this exceptional competition. A most iconic ally for a man with the soul of a GPMH driver.
