History
Chopard as a brand came into being in the 1860s in a small village in Switzerland. Founded by a young talented craftsman, Louise-Ulysse Chopard, the brand fast gained popularity due to the reliability and precision its watches offered. Now known throughout the globe for its world class timepieces, Chopard watches are both elegant looking and high on functionality.
Collection
The Chopard 168459-3001 belongs to the Mille Miglia Gran Turismo Chrono series that pays ode to the Mille Miglia car race. This race that featured the best drivers and the grandest of cars had a short run due to two fatal accidents. However, Chopard has consistently released new models in the series, which has developed a dedicated following over the years.
Design
The Chopard 168459-3001 sports a round stainless steel case with a transparent case back. This timepiece’s dial is black in colour with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass. The case that measures 44 mm in diameter and 14.3 mm in thickness has a fixed bezel and a screw-down crown. Its strap is made in brown calfskin leather with a deployant clasp. The dial is two-tiered with luminous hour markers and hands. There is a Tachymeter Scale engraved on the steel bezel. The hands that are painted white together with the oversized numerals lend the watch an elegant look.
Features
The timepiece is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement of ETA Valranges Calibre a07-211. It boasts of being water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters, it has a power reserve of 48 hours. A magnified date window is located at the 3 o’clock position as are 3 sub-dials that show 12-hour, 30-minute and seconds counters. Flaunting 25 jewels, it also displays fractions of a second scale around the rim of the dial.

History
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.


Features
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.

 

Events
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.
