Maximilian Büsser conceived LM1 in a fantasy, he thought: ‘What if I was born a hundred years earlier, not in 1967, but in 1867? Watches only appeared in the early 1900s, if at that moment, I wanted to create a watch to be worn on my wrist. At that time, there was no inspiration from ‘Invincible Iron King Kong’, ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Fighter’. I only had pocket watches, Eiffel Tower and science fiction ‘20,000 miles under the sea ”For reference, what would a watch like this look like? It must be round and three-dimensional, and Legacy Machine No. 1 is my answer.”
Loyal to the high quality of the 19th century pocket watch, the LM1 uses a large-diameter double-spoke balance wheel and a traditional Breguet double-layer headspring; its mysterious adjustment mechanism is fully visible, but the balance wheel is suspended above the movement. Hour and minute, fully independent dual time zone indications are located on two dials-Dual time zone complication usually does not allow independent adjustment of minutes-its circular dial further enhances the golden age of watchmaking from visual effects (1780-1850) a feeling of.

Chopard’s New Three Precision Timepieces Dedicated To Antique Car Racing

Chopard’s new Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2014 watch series consists of three outstanding timepieces. This high-performance comprehensive combination includes a chronograph, an automatic winding watch and a watch with a power reserve display, dedicated to the most prestigious antique car events.

Gentleman rider, mechanical passion
 The Monaco Antique Car Race is a collection of racing cars from the 1920s to 1985, making all kinds of very different antique cars roar in the same arena. It is a diverse race. Each car symbolizes the outstanding machinery of a particular era, escorting passionate riders to fight in real time. Chopard has been the sponsor and official timekeeper of the event since 2002, and has been involved in the event because of its unique emotional connection. Chopard co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele is a dedicated antique car enthusiast. At each event (every two years), Chopard will launch a limited edition chronograph to highlight the style of the event. In 2014, Chopard launched for the first time a true watch collection associated with this event. The new Grand Prix de Monaco Historique series includes a full range of fully functional watches designed to meet the needs of customers and drivers. Chopard launched three different styles, each with two materials, one with micro-blasted titanium and stainless steel, showing pure sports style; the other with rose gold and stainless steel, more precious and gorgeous. The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique watches have different functions, like three main engine groups: V6, V8 and V12.

Three watches, the same spirit
 The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Automatic is an excellent timing tool. Its self-winding movement, certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC), acts like a V6 engine, ensuring precision timing performance that meets driver requirements and Chopard standards. The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Power Control is no longer a V8 engine, with a power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock. Its appearance design directly draws on gasoline or fuel gauge.

 Finally, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Chrono is the V12 engine in the family. Powerful, orthodox, noble, well-deserved excellence racing equipment. The three watches of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique series belong to the same family, and their completely renewed and innovative design makes them outstanding. The chassis is a 44.5 mm diameter titanium case, which is light, sturdy and has good biocompatibility. The caseback is engraved with the Automobile Club de Monaco logo, so it is made of stainless steel that is more resistant to engraving. The lugs have been reworked to ensure better wearing comfort. But the most important change is the dial. Its surface is sanded and grooved. The constantly running surface is reminiscent of the car’s speeding and cornering signs.

Speed ​​and sportiness
 The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2014 collection introduces a new shade. Yellow is the basic color of the racing language. Jumping and bright yellow represents speed, warnings, and dangers that riders face all the time. Fluorescent hour markers, hands, case back, everything is carefully designed to ensure that Automatic, Power Control and Chrono Grand Prix de Monaco Historique watches are easy to wear, easy to use, and easy to read. This shade is exclusive to the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique collection of titanium and stainless steel watches. These timepieces are highly functional and symbolize the concept of mechanical movement. This concept is closely linked to adaptability. Whether a driver wins or not depends on his ability to adapt. For this reason, these models are available with stainless steel and titanium bracelets or black barénia calfskin straps. The yellow bright stitching on the leather strap further extends the dial and the entire watch’s explosive atmosphere.

Elegant Confucianism
 In addition to these instrumentation tools, Chopard has launched watches made of stainless steel with titanium and rose gold. The hands, bezel and crown of the Automatic, Power Control and Chrono Grand Prix de Monaco Historique watches are plated with rose gold. The buttons of the Chrono Grand Prix de Monaco Historique watch are also made of precious rose gold, while the beige pin stitching of the black barenia calfskin strap is also embellished with rose gold. These more ornate and complex materials contrast with silver-gray dials and black hour markers, demonstrating that the classic racing world belongs to a gentle gentleman, with a refined elegance. This is Chopard’s dedication to car racing: a combination of superior mechanical performance, impeccable ergonomics, while at the same time losing the inherent elegance of the racing world.
