MILLE MIGLIA 2019 RACE EDITION
Partner of the legendary eponymous Italian classic car rally, the manufacture has launched the 2019 vintage limited edition of its chronograph to mark the occasion.
Last year, Chopard took us on a journey along the winding roads between Brescia and Rome with a Mille Miglia equipped with a classic time display. For this new version, the 2019 limited edition launched by the manufacture sports a very different design on its dial. The chronograph counters in black are vertically aligned at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock. The date window with a lens for magnification completes the symmetry with the small seconds dial located at 9 o’clock. Plain gray ruthenium replaces the beading of the 2018 edition. The piece is protected by a steel case which has gained 2 mm and now comes in a diameter of 44 mm providing a spacious layout of all the information. The rose gold pushers and bezel add a touch of refinement to this sporty piece for men.
As in the past, a self-winding movement powers the Mille Miglia 2019 Race Edition. Once wound, it can measure short time lapses and provides a power reserve of 48 hours. As with all Chopard watches, the chronometer is certified by the COSC, Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
The 1,000 pieces come with a brown calf leather strap with black rubber lining inspired by Dunlop tires from the 1960s and finished with a folding buckle. The sealed case back is stamped with the event’s logo and a checkered flag darkened using a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) treatment.
