Watch manufacturing brands’ involvement with sport competitions related to football, racing or diving has been a common practice of promotion so far and so, Chopard’s partnership with FC Barcelona came as no surprise. In the honor of the much esteemed FC Barcelona, Chopard has created an amazing timepiece that expresses action, speed and competition.
Being created in a limited edition of only 50 pieces, the new Chopard 1000 Miglia GT XL Speed Black FC Barcelona Watch embraces a sporty and masculine design, with a technical movement equally important as its exterior appeal. This new timpiece was released at the Official Chopard Store in Barcelona during a fancy reception that gathered around some of the most famous football players from FC Barcelona, representatives of the Club and also many people from the media, interested in the watch manufacturing industry. The event was nothing but glamorous and it rose to the occasion of the great results that FC Barcelona has had for the past few seasons.
The new Chopard 1000 Miglia GT XL Speed Black FC Barcelona Watch features a case whose dimensions are quite massive, 44 mm in diameter. Definitely a watch for sportsmen, the case of the new Chopard is crafted from steel which was previously DLC treated to provide that resistant, solid appearance.
When it comes to talking about the dial of the watch, I’d say that the designers took only the best of decisions to assure the aesthetic appeal of the amazing timepiece. The dial is black and it features white detailing to assure the best contrast. Easy to read, the watch provides the main functions of the watch with hands placed in the center of the dial; it also features three sub-dials for the functions of the chronograph and also a date window located at three o’clock. Two over-sized Arabic numerals indicating the 12 and 6 o’clock positions offer a touch of originality to the dial and also, the inscription Chopard FC Barcelona Tricampions gives a touch of distinction to the watch.
Sheltered with artistry under the massive case construction is a COSC certified mechanism involving a chronograph movement. This movement guarantees maximum of accuracy to the functions of the new Chopard 1000 Miglia GT XL Speed Black FC Barcelona Watch and reliability due to its shock absorption system protecting the case.
The element of impact to the eye comes from the strap that recreates the 1960s Dunlop Racing tire pattern. Made of rubber, the strap is equipped with a folding clasp made from the exact material as the case, PVD steel.
Even if you’re not a fan of football or of sports in general, you have to agree that the new Chopard 1000 Miglia GT XL Speed Black FC Barcelona Watch looks great no matter what and if you appreciate quality and design, you’ll definitely like it on your wrist.
