Mille Miglia 2020 Race Edition

42 mm, automatic, DLC stainless steel
Ref. Number: 168589-3028

Description

Each year since Chopard has been a partner and the official timekeeper of the Mille Miglia, the House has been presenting a new series of timepieces as part of its collection in tribute to the legendary race. Throughout the decades, these iconic watches have become eagerly-awaited collectors' pieces, as much for their rarity – they are released in limited numbers – as for the way they express the inseparable ties between classic cars and mechanical sports watches. A chronograph is part of the essential gear for any Gentleman Driver, and that is why each team participating in the Mille Miglia receives that year's Mille Miglia Race Edition watch at the start of the race. The 2020 edition is available in two versions, each equipped with a chronometer-certified movement: 1,000 watches in microblasted DLC-coated stainless steel, and 250 in microblasted DLC-Coated stainless steel and ethical rose gold.

Mille Miglia watches

The prestigious 1000 Miglia is undoubtedly the most beautiful car race in the world, (“la corsa piu bella del mondo” as true aficionados call it). Since 1988 until today, Chopard has offered timeless watches for men, featuring a resolutely sporty character tinged with deliciously retro accents, much like the rally that inspires them.
