Swiss luxury brand Chopard is, once again, the main partner and official timekeeper of 1000 Miglia race rally, for the 34th consecutive year.
This year, Chopard commemorates the event by launching Mille Miglia 2021 Race Editions.
The 2021 Mille Miglia Race Edition is an automatic winding chronograph created to —first and foremost —measure time dependably. It is a sporty, reliable piece with a 48-hour power serve, stop-seconds function, water resistance to 100 metres as well as a glare-proofed sapphire crystal to increase legibility.
The watch takes its visual cues from the dials and gauges of classic cars. Secured with screws, the back case bears a chequered flag which is the 1000 Miglia logo and the inscription ‘Brescia > Roma > Brescia’ reinforcing the relationship between the piece and the historic rally. With intense grey and silver colours, accented with red touches, the watch has a strong visual identity that makes it stand out.
The grey dial, obtained by galvanic treatment on a brass base, features a circular satin-brushed finish performed by dial-maker artisans
This watch is said to be both, a commemoration of the event, and a memory of the family and loved ones that ran the most prestigious race in the world.
