Post Chopard celebrates Alfa Romeo with special line of timepieces

Alfa Romeo Anniversary Watch Collection by Chopard
GT XL Chrono Alfa Romeo
Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo

Chopard and Alfa Romeo have decided to join forces and to launch three new classic sport watches. Indeed, 2010 is a very special year for both companies as each brand is celebrating an exceptional anniversary: 150 years for Chopard and 100 years for Alfa Romeo. Since more than two decades Chopard is strongly involved in the World of Classic Racing serving as sponsor and Official Timekeeper for the Mille Miglia race, "la corsa piu bella del mondo", in which Alfa Romeo cars reached the highest number of victories, in total eleven.

The GT XL Chrono Alfa Romeo (stainless steel or black DLC-coated steel) and the Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo feature black dial with red hands and indexes as well as the logo of the two brands. Endowed with 46-hour power reserve, the self-winding movements are chronometer-certified by the COSC and beat at 28'800 vibrations per hour. The 44mm diameter cases are water-resistant up to 100 metres and are protected by glare-proof sapphire crystals. The three versions are issued in limited and numbered editions of 500.

Looks too similar to the regular one, I'd rather have a Rolex Daytona
