Chopard and Mille Miglia
The Mille Miglia is an iconic vintage car race that took place in Italy from 1927 to 1957 and was revived as an annual event for classic and vintage cars in 1977. Chopard’s association with the Mille Miglia began in 1988 when Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, co-president of Chopard, participated in the race and decided to create a watch to commemorate the event. The Chopard Mille Miglia collection comprises a series of sporty and stylish timepieces designed specifically for automotive and racing enthusiasts. These watches blend Chopard’s watchmaking expertise with the adrenaline and elegance of the Mille Miglia race.
Classic Car Inspired
The Mille Miglia watches are known for their distinctive design elements inspired by classic cars. These include details such as tire-tread rubber straps, chronograph pushers resembling engine pistons, and dials reminiscent of vintage car dashboards.
Many Mille Miglia models will feature chronograph complications, allowing users to measure elapsed time. The chronograph sub-dials have a layout resembling the dashboard instruments of a sports car. Red is a recurring colour in the Mille Miglia collection, symbolising the passion and energy associated with racing. Red accents on the dial and hands are common in these timepieces and add to the racing credentials. Chopard has established itself as the official timekeeper of the Mille Miglia race, solidifying the brand’s commitment to the world of classic car racing. The partnership has allowed for a close association between the watches and the race itself.
The Chopard Mille Miglia collection continues to capture the hearts of both watch enthusiasts and motorsports aficionados, showcasing a harmonious blend of precision watchmaking and the thrill of classic car racing. The watches are not just timepieces but also a celebration of the dynamic relationship between Chopard and the Mille Miglia race
