Chopard and Alfa Romeo celebrate their anniversaries with a full range of timepieces

Posted on by + 4

It’s a time for anniversaries and apparently Chopard and Alfa Romeo are making good use of this celebratory time by putting out a product as part of a festive partnership. The GT XL Chrono Alfa Romeo and the Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo will be the products of choice to celebrate Chopard’s 150th anniversary and Alfa Romeo’s 100th anniversary.

Both watches will come in a stainless steel case with a total diameter of 44.00 mm and a thickness of 14.36 mm. Each will feature a black dial with red hands and indexes as well as the logo of the two brands. The timepieces will operate on a 46-hour power reserve and are water resistant for up to 100 meters. The timepieces will also feature COSC-certified in-house automatic movements, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and Chopard’s signature vintage Dunlop-inspired rubber straps.

The GT XL Chrono Alfa Romeo will be available in two different versions; one which will be available in stainless steel and the other in black DLC-coated steel. The Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo will see only one version to round off the timepiece line set for these two anniversaries. Each of the three timepieces will be in limited and numbered editions of 500.

As a rather strange and unlikely addition to the celebratory range, Chopard and Alfa Romeo will also be bringing out a table clock in PVD-coated steel that comes with a black leather, red-stitched case, and an additional travel alarm clock that comes with a steel case.

Happy Anniversary Guys! These two anniversaries are definitely worth setting out an entire range of timepieces for and we hope you see many more anniversaries to come!

Chopard and Alfa Romeo have decided to join forces and to launch three new classic sport watches. Indeed, 2010 is a very special year for both companies as each brand is celebrating an exceptional anniversary: 150 years for Chopard and 100 years for Alfa Romeo. Since more than two decades Chopard is strongly involved in the World of Classic Racing serving as sponsor and Official Timekeeper for the Mille Miglia race, "la corsa piu bella del mondo", in which Alfa Romeo cars reached the highest number of victories, in total eleven.

The GT XL Chrono Alfa Romeo (stainless steel or black DLC-coated steel) and the Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo feature black dial with red hands and indexes as well as the logo of the two brands. Endowed with 46-hour power reserve, the self-winding movements are chronometer-certified by the COSC and beat at 28’800 vibrations per hour.
