Paying tribute to Chopard’s historical partnership with the famous vintage car racing event Mille Miglia since 1988, the eponymous Mille Miglia collection was launched to honour vintage sports cars with timepieces featuring sporty designs and impressive power backups. The collection accomplishes Chopard’s milestone to represent sporting events, tagging itself as a sporting emblem in the luxury watch making division.
The Chopard Mille Miglia 168511-3001 flaunts an exquisite masculine sporty design. Completely made of steel that promises durability, the bezel of this time piece is silver hued, adding a pinch of simplicity to the ensemble. This bezel is further complemented by a black lacquered finished dial engraved with silver luminescent Arabic numerals as the hour indices. The minute’s marks are etched out on the outer rim of the dial. Silver toned luminous hands with a plume second’s arm increase the readability of the dial with a fine amount of detailing. A transparent case back with the company signature reveals the movements of the watch. The stationery bezel is firmly held by the use of a black patterned rubber bracelet. Absolute wrist movement comfort and grip is provided by its pin buckle clasp. The anti-reflective Sapphire Crystal glass finish over its case window protects the sensitive elements of the dial from scratches and damage.
The Chopard Mille Miglia 168511-3001 is powered by COSC certified mechanical automatic movement. It also features 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, with a date window located between the 4 o’ clock and 5 o’clock positions of the dial. A water resistance of 50 metres renders the watch well protected against accidental splashes of water. With an impressive power reserve of 42 hours, this watch is singular in its accuracy and reliability, promising to be a good buy for men seeking the blends of luxury and sportive watch as one.
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.
