A fine combination of sporty and finesse, the 388549-3005 Chopard Imperiale has a mysterious, attractive looking black dial and stylish looking hands showing precise time. All details are perfectly positioned making this masterpiece one of a kind.
This limited edition watch is from the partnership of Chopard and luxury automotive designer Zagato. Mille Migilia Zagato has collaborated with the most prestigious automobile companies to create icons of the road. This watch features Zagato logo on both side of the watch. A very stylish and sporty looking timepiece that will go very well with a sports car.
The cool feature of this watch is that it is able to capture split-seconds when timing. The 168542-3001 Chopard Superfast Split Second is a limited edition which gives a very bold and masculine yet sporty look overall thanks to its boldy assertive personality. A good mixture of black, silver and red that fits very well in the Classic Racing Collection.
