Having a history dating back to the 1860's, Chopard was founded in a small village in Switzerland by a young talented craftsman, Louis-Ulysse Chopard. Owing to the reliability and precision Chopard’s watches provided, the brand quickly gained popularity. Through the years, Chopard has come to be known worldwide for its world class timepieces that are both elegant looking and high on functionality.
The Chopard 168457-3001 belongs to the Mille Miglia Gran Turismo XL Power Reserve series. The series pays ode to the Mille Miglia car race that started in Italy and featured the best drivers and the grandest of cars of the era. Though the races stopped, following two fatal accidents, Chopard has consistently released new models in the series. Known for their reliable, robustness and tough nature, the series has over the years developed a dedicated following.
The Chopard 168457-3001 sports a round, case made in stainless steel that measure 44 mm in diameter and 14.2 mm in thickness. Featuring a transparent case back, it has a fixed bezel and a screw-down crown. Its dial is black in colour within which is an oversized 12 Arabic numeral opposite to a power reserve indicator that is designed to look like a petrol gauge on the dashboard of a vintage car. The strap is made in black rubber and equipped with a deployant clasp and the dial is covered in scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass. The dial flaunts luminous hands and markers that ensure clear visibility.
Equipped with an automatic self-winding, mechanical movement, the timepiece has a frequency of 4 Hz. This timepiece boasts of being water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters. It also has a power reserve of 46 hours. Featuring an automatic date function located at the 3 o’clock position, the watch is unmatched in its precision and mechanical prowess.
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.
