The new Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph by Swiss luxury watches manufacturer Chopard

The new Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph with its retro-chic charm comes with a 42 mm stainless steel case, framing a dark blue dial featuring broad luminescent numerals, and fitted with a leather strap that acquires a pleasing patina over time. Equipped with a COSC-certified high-precision ‘engine’, this sporting model issued in a 1,000-piece limited series admirably distils the classic spirit cherished by Chopard.

Dedicated to passionate devotees of fine mechanics and performance, the new Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph radiates sporty vintage elegance, inspired by the legendary Italian race. Enhanced by two traditional pushers and a fluted crown – twin characteristics typical of oldtimer chronographs –, its 42 mm stainless steel case features harmonious dimensions and classical lines. It houses a horological ‘engine’ chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) reliably delivering performance and precision in every circumstance. Embodying an authentic passion for classic racing, this model is firmly secured to the wrist of gentlemen drivers by a patinated chestnut brown calfskin strap with a stainless steel folding clasp. The elegant, vintage-style deep blue dial ensures perfect legibility by day or night, thanks to large Arabic numerals and baton-type hands coated with Super-LumiNova®. Its slim cursive font and counters evoke late 1920s car dashboards, playing on contrasts to achieve maximum visibility – an essential quality of competition watches in any conditions. The bright red-tipped sweep seconds hand marks off the precious seconds of the race, while the tachymeter scale enables the driver to calculate his average speed. The arrow-shaped red Mille Miglia “Rossa Corsa” logo adorns the dial at 12 o’clock and the exhibition case-back. This decidedly elegant watch is a real asset for competitors racing at full speed along Italian roads.
