World Sponsor & Official Timekeeper
Alongside the 1000 Miglia since 1988, Chopard produces the official watch of the event every year and today boasts a collection of more than thirty years of models flaunted on the wrists of the racing drivers.
Founded in 1860, Chopard, The Artisan of Emotions, perpetuates the heritage of traditional know-how and ancestral crafts through contemporary and ethical creations.
Cultivating limitless creativity, the Maison takes craftsmanship to peak levels through the work of passionate and experienced artisans. Moreover, since July 2018, Chopard has been the first watch and jewellery maker to use 100% Ethical Gold for the production of all its watches and jewellery.
Today, Chopard is run by the Scheufele family and masters more than 50 professions at its three production sites, where particular attention is paid to internal training and the transmission of know-how.
The Maison lives in step with its prestigious partnerships: a loyal official partner to the Cannes Film Festival since 1998, it has also been the official timekeeper of the legendary Italian 1000 Miglia classic car race since 1988.
