Design
Chopard’s watch model number 168997-3001 comes with a 44 mm, stainless steel case. Its case back has a sapphire crystal display that shows the Guilloche Rotor and Movement. The watch has a big and elaborate midnight black dial that renders masculinity to the piece. Its luminescent index hour markers and the hour and minute hands complement the dial perfectly. The 6 o’clock and 12 o’ clock positions on the dial are marked with Arabic numerals. Its outer rim is engraved with white minute markers. This timepiece has a fixed stainless steel bezel and a protected stainless steel crown. The watch has a strong black colour rubber strap with fold through deployment clasp.

Features
Chopard’s 168997-3001 model has self winding automatic movement and a power reserve of 46 hours. The watch includes the useful date feature. Its date window rests at the 3 o’ clock position and offers an easy glance at the current date.

This elegantly designed watch from the Mille Miglia Gran Turismo series is fitted with the robust sapphire crystal glass which is scratch-resistant. The watch is also water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters. So you don’t have to be over cautious as you indulge in different activities wearing this time piece.

Mille Miglia Connection
Chopard sponsored the Mille Miglia race in the year 1988. The partnership was initiated as a result of Karl and Karl-Friedrich Scheufele’s interest in collectors’ cars. Apparently, this is not just another event the company has joined hands with. It is much more than a professional agreement for Karl. The father son duo’s passion for these cars makes it special. They have been participating in the 1000 mile race from Brescia to Rome each year.

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.
