The Chopard Mille Miglia 2015 Race Edition picks up the design codes of the classic cars that took part in the Italian race between 1940 and 1957. The power-reserve indicator is reminiscent of typical 1950s petrol gauges, while the oversized 6 and 12 o’clock Arabic numerals echo the dashboards of vintage cars. In a nod to the participant numbers placed on the doors and bonnet of the competing vehicles, the date window appears clearly on a white background in the Mille Miglia red arrow-shaped logo.
The facetted hands and the hour-markers are painted with a luminescent coating and enhance the readability as well as the sporting character of this timepiece. The Chopard Mille Miglia 2015 Race Edition comes in a sturdy 43 mm case in 18-carat rose gold or steel, topped by a bezel with a black aluminium graduated insert. Its short, streamlined lugs have been designed to perfectly mould the curve of the wrist, ensuring optimal comfort and style further enhanced by the black Barenia leather calfskin strap secured by an 18-carat rose gold or steel folding clasp.
The screw-down back guaranteeing water resistance to 100 metres is engraved with the inscriptions “Mille Miglia” and “Brescia > Rome > Brescia” and fitted with a transparent sapphire crystal pane revealing the Chopard movement and its openworked oscillating weight.
Chopard Mille Miglia 2015 Race Edition is launched as a limited edition of 1,000 timepieces in steel and 100 in rose gold.
