We are extremally proud to announce that Chopin Watches is an official partner of one of the most important musical events of the year – the XVIII Chopin Competition.

On the occasion of such a prestigious competition, Chopin Watches created a special, dedicated edition of it’s flagship Opus 10 No. 12 timepiece. Just like the regular version, this one was also inspired by Chopin’s life and his special affection for the color purple. Limited to just 5 pieces („XVIII Chopin Competition – One of Five” engraved on the caseback) comes with a small-seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, plated in metallic, warm purple hue. Crafted by Schwarz Etienne manufacture, Chopin Opus 10 No. 12 has a 43 mm steel case, highly adorned dial with a power reserve indicator shaped like piano keys and a manually wound Swiss movement, caliber MSE 210. The movement comes equipped with a red balance wheel and a plate engraved with Chopin’s handwritten letter.

The watch will be officially presented to the public on October 14th in the National Philharmonic in Warsaw.
