While the three individuals who have won the biggest lottery jackpot in US history sit at home and let reality sink in, we are only dreaming of what we’d buy with that load of cash. (Here, here and here are some initial ideas.)
Something to add to that list is belongs to the new watch collection from Chopard, aptly named ‘Classic’. The first watch in the line is the Classic Manufactrum which made its debut at the Baselworld Watch Fair.
Inspired by the pocketwatches of the Bell Epoque, the Classic Manufactum is a timeless piece.
Available in 18-carat rose, white or yellow gold, this timepiece with is equipped with the calibre Chopard 01.04-C, a new mechanical self-winding movement developed in-house and produced in the workshops of Fleurier Ebauches, the Chopard Group unit in charge of the industrial production of movements not destined for its L.U.C Haute Horlogerie collection.
Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, it guarantees a generous 60-hour power reserve. The rounded 38 mm-diameter case features an 18-carat gold crown and has a black alligator leather strap fitted with an 18-carat gold pin buckle.
Our favourite, the rose-gold model (above) retails for USD14,740. Prices on the other models have yet to be determined. What’s a mere 14K when you’re a multimillionaire, right?
