Chronograph, Date Indicator
Limited Edition Of 250 Pieces
In 2018, Chopard celebrated three decades of partnership with the Mille Miglia race, “la corsa più bella del mondo” which is raced over a 1,600 km loop running from Brescia to Rome and back. This unique alliance in the world of classic motorsport, which reflects Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele’s passion for classic cars, continues this year with the Mille Miglia 2019 Race Edition. Available in a 1000-piece limited edition in stainless steel or 250-piece two-tone limited edition in stainless steel and 18-carat rose gold, this distinctive, sturdy and accurate chronograph reflects a tradition of watches made for contemporary gentlemen and imbued with an inimitable vintage spirit for speed-loving drivers… who never skimp on style!
The sweet fragrance of Italian scents, the charm of Tuscan villages nestled in the hills, the winding roads of Lombardy hurtled along by drivers navigating the nearly 1,600 kilometre rally route. Mille Miglia is all that at once: a legendary competition that Enzo Ferrari unhesitatingly referred as “la corsa più bella del mondo”, but also a unique gathering of more than 400 historic cars and their drivers, all devotees of these mechanical marvels with their own unique roar, and which can only be driven with class. This four-stage rally driven from Brescia to Rome and back was bound to appeal to Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, a keen classic car connoisseur – and driver – when his schedule permits. Especially since the spirit of this race, which began in the 1920s and was resurrected in 1977, carries memories of the finest hours in motorsport, with the Dolce Vita as an added bonus.
