MILLE MIGLIA CLASSIC CHRONOGRAPH ZAGATO 100TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Z IS FOR ZAGATO
With this limited edition, Chopard is celebrating 100 years of one of the most creative designers of race cars to win the legendary Mille Miglia rally between Brescia and Rome.
To mark Zagato’s centenary, Chopard is paying vibrant homage to this family business which also shares a passion for cars. This takes the shape of a 100-piece limited edition with curves and finery as elegant as those designed by the legendary Italian coachbuilder. The Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph 100th Anniversary Edition comes with an intense red lacquered dial, the signature color of the Milan-based studio, covered with a design using the Z of the company logo. The time information components are laid out in the traditional manner inherent to the collection’s timepieces. The faceted, rhodium-plated, baton-shaped hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova® and point to the markers arranged on the outer ring. Two counters, together with the red-tipped central second hand provide an easy-to-read short timer. A small second at 3 o’clock and a date window at 4:30 complete the set. A tachymeter scale adds a vintage touch to the creation.
The 42 mm steel case contains a self-winding movement equipped with a stop-second function. The caliber is regulated to vibrate at a frequency of 28 000 oscillations per hour and offers a power reserve of 42 hours. As with all the watches in production, its chronometer is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
Another interesting feature is the cuff strap in black calf leather.
