MILLE MIGLIA

A HISTORICAL PARTNERSHIP

 

As official timekeeper and sponsor of the Mille Miglia since 1988, the world's most famous regularity race for classic cars, Chopard has created a collection of luxury sports watches which has become the brand's unmistakable sporting emblem. Its unique and instantly recognisable design has made this collection one of the greatest classics of contemporary watchmaking.

  • CHOPARD BECOMES THE OFFICIAL TIMEKEEPER AND SPONSOR OF THE MILLE MIGLIA IN 1988. EACH EDITION HAS ITS OWN CHOPARD MASTERPIECE
  • THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN CHOPARD AND MILLE MIGLIA IS REFLECTED BY A COLOUR CODE ON THE DIAL (RED, BLACK AND WHITE).
  • THE RUBBER STRAPS ARE A REAL BREAKTHROUGH REPRESENTING A PIECE OF CHOPARD’S IDENTITY. THE DESIGN IS REMINISCENT OF THE DUNLOP FLEXIBLE TIRES USED IN THE 60’S.
  • OVER TIME, DESIGNS EVOLVE AND NEW FEATURES EMERGE. NEW INNOVATIVE MATERIALS AND A CHRONOMETER-CERTIFIED MOVEMENT EMPHASISE THE RELIABILITY OF THE COLLECTION.
  • EVERY YEAR, CHOPARD ISSUES A LIMITED EDITION MILLE MIGLIA WATCH (THE RACE EDITION), DESIGNED FOR COLLECTORS

ONE WORLD, TWO STYLES

INSPIRED BY THE MILLE MIGLIA CARS

 

The Mille Miglia line has two sub lines, both inspired by the cars eligible for the Mille Miglia race. The first, Mille Miglia Classic, is composed of pieces inspired by the older cars (between 1927 and 1940). Refined elegant lines give a vintage look. The second, Mille Miglia GTS (for Grand Turismo Sport) is more modern in its splendour, taking its inspiration from more recent cars. Faithful to its passion for a high craftsmanship, the Power Control and Automatic models are equipped with Chopard movements fully developed in-house at our Fleurier Ebauches Workshops.
