How much does a Chopard Classic Racing watch cost? 

The Chopard Classic Racing collection is diverse and includes many categories of watches such as the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, the SuperFast, and the Chopard Mille Miglia watches. Because the collection is vast, it contains a wide range of styles — from more retro and classic designs to more modern styles. With their practical yet versatile designs, these sports watches are as apt for the tracks as they are for everyday wear.

One of the more modern models is the Chopard Classic Racing SuperFast Chronograph Ref. 168535-3001. This watch has a case diameter of 45mm, perfect for a practical yet comfortable sports watch. The watch has a nice contrast of brushed and polished details, and it features three subdials — a small seconds subdial, a 30-minute counter, and a 12-hour counter. It also has a date display, a tachymeter scale on the outer bezel, and red markers on the inner bezel that allows for accurate readings up to fractions of a second. While this model has a rather busy dial, it has a sleek design that ensures legibility and aesthetics. This watch changes hands for about $8,630 USD.

If you’re into a more luxurious aesthetic, the Chopard Classic Racing SuperFast Power Control Ref. 161291-5001 might be right up your alley. This majestic watch comes in a brushed and polished 18K gold case that’s 45mm in diameter. The watch’s design, like many Chopard Classic Racing watches, resembles the dashboard of classic cars. This watch has a power reserve display as well as a date function. The Ref. 161291-5001 has powerful movements as well, with the COSC-certified Chopard 01.02-M caliber powering this elegant piece and giving it a power reserve of up to 60 hours. This is a rather significant investment due to the 18K gold, and is priced at $18,500 USD.

Another iconic watch from the Classic Racing collection is the Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Ref. 168570-3002, which has a titanium case measuring 44.5mm. It also has a tachymeter scale, a small seconds dial, 30-minute and 12-hour counters, and a date display as well. The watch has a water resistance of up to 100m, and the ETA-Valgranges Caliber A07.211 gives the timepiece a power reserve of up to 46 hours. The red hands are striking and easily readable, and a thin red line on the band also provides such a nice and appealing detail to the piece. This sporty watch costs around $5,300 USD.

The Chopard Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Ref. 158570-3001 is another striking watch. With a color combination of blue, yellow, black, and white, it’s a watch with bold contrasts that are sure to attract attention. The timepiece comes in a 44.5mm titanium case and titanium bracelet. It has three subdials and a date display, and it has an automatic ETA-Valgranges Caliber A07.211 movement. The Ref. 158570-3001 has a water resistance of 100m and a power reserve of up to 46 hours. You can get this watch for about $6,250 USD.

Another great automotive-inspired timepiece is the Chopard Mille Miglia Ref. 158565-3001, a classy sports watch that’s simple but full of character. This watch’s black dial contains details of red and white, a color combination that’s subtle yet powerful. It allows for maximum legibility and isn’t as flashy as other color combinations. Its markers also allow for precise and accurate readings. The watch has a date display at 3 o’clock, adorned with the Mille Miglia logo that defines the rest of the Mille Miglia collection. With the Chopard caliber 01.01-C movement, this well-loved sports watch has a power reserve of 60 hours. The watch sells for around $4,580 USD.

Chopard continues to innovate and produce new models for the Classic Racing collection, making the line quite diverse. There is a wide variety of colors, styles, features, and movements to choose from. The brand makes its own quality in-house movements, and the pieces they equip with their in-house calibers tend to be more expensive than the models that have Valjoux or ETA calibers.

Chopard released a new SuperFast model in 2021 with the reference number 161284-5001. This 2021 Chopard watch features a rose gold case, bezel, and clasp.

Chopard also introduces new models for the Mille Miglia collection every year in commemoration of the upcoming rally races that happen annually. The brand produces 1,000 pieces of the limited-edition Chopard Mille Miglia Race Edition watch each year. The rare watches typically cost between $2,600 USD and $7,500 USD.

History Behind the Chopard Classic Racing Collection

The Chopard Classic Racing collection attempts to bridge the realms of motorsports and luxury watches, as both automotive and watches require great precision, quality, and attention to detail. Many of the designs in the collection feature various aspects of automotive, such as dashboards, machinery, steering wheels, and even the treads of car tires. 

Chopard makes use of only the finest materials in producing Classic Racing watches, and they equip them with powerful movements, either Valjoux, ETA, or in-house calibers. Each year, the collection grows as Chopard continues to innovate and create more designs in anticipation of various motorsports.
