The Mille Miglia collection denotes a historical iconic partnership with the Mille Miglia event since 1988. Featuring unique sporty time keepers in this collection for this super event of vintage car racing, Chopard became a luxury sporting brand emblem in the contemporary watch making industry.
Inspired by legendary vintage cars, the Chopard Mille Miglia 158511-3002 for men features a case entirely crafted out of stainless steel. The silver hued steel bezel enhances the looks of the watch with its brilliant finish. Embodying the silver bezel there is a black lacquered finish dial engraved with silver luminescent Arabic numerals as the hour indexes of the time piece. The minute’s track is marked on the outer rim of the black dial. Thick silver toned baton hands with a plume seconds arm grace the presentation of the dial with increased readability. The silver crown with two pushers calibrates the chronograph movements of arm motion and sub-dial adjustments. You can witness the magic of its movements with the exhibition case back. The black dial is perfectly set against the silver 42mm stainless steel case and stationery bezel, which is further complemented by the use of a uni-toned silver oyster steel bracelet. One can easily enjoy the wrist comfort of this bracelet with its hidden folding clasp. The anti-reflective Sapphire Crystal glass finish over its case window renders the watch scratch resistant and shock-proof, protecting the inner elements of the dial.
The Chopard Mille Miglia 158511-3002 features a power backup of 42 hours, as it sports COSC certified mechanical automatic movements. This chronograph possesses 3 sub-dials, namely, a small seconds counter at 3 o’ clock, a 12 hour counter at 6 o’ clock, and a 30 minute counter at 9 o’clock. A date window is also provided between the 4 o’ clock and 5 o’clock position of the dial. Having a water resistance of 50 metres, this watch will easily withstand accidental splashes of water.
The inter-linkage between vintage cars and timepieces has been relevant for decades, and the Mille Miglia is a resoundingly successful evidence of one such relationship. Born as a tribute to the Italian Mille Miglia race, the collection exemplifies technical superiority and consecration to the racecourse. Since 1988, Chopard has been the official time keeper of this prestigious 1000 mile race, and as a mark of esteem to this association, the brand launched the Mille Miglia collection. The line has two versions- the Mille Miglia Classic, commemorating cars from the year 1927 to 1940, and the Mille Miglia Gran Turismo XL, for the more recent vehicles.
Timepieces from the Mille Miglia collection offer a unique intermingling of Chopard’s technical expertise and superior crafting, in a sporty yet classy style. The most distinguishing feature of this collection is the natural rubber strap sported by most models, with corrugations modelled on the Dunlop tires of the 1960s. The dials are available in the shades of white, black, and even reddish pink. The Classic version features a design slightly more understated than the Gran Turismo XL, which boasts bold time markers and oversized hands for a robust appearance. Certain models from this collection are intricately coloured to hint at the Italian flag, in honour of the country that houses its namesake. The technical mastery of this timekeeping instrument lies in its COSC chronometer-certified mechanical self-winging movement, ideal for keeping minute count during the fast paced races. Specific editions come equipped with three subdials for seconds, 30-minute and 12 hour counters.
Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, co-president of Chopard, participated for the 25th time in the Mille Miglia 2014, as an expert on vintage cars, along with other eminent personalities such as Jeremy Irons, Jay Leno, and several others. As a tradition, each participating driver was gifted a Chopard, this year’s model being the incredible 42mm Mille Miglia 2014.
