Chopard and Veschetti
Behind the scenes of the event Mille Miglia
Since 1988, Chopard has been the official timekeeper of “la corsa più bella del mondo” which annually stretches from Brescia to Rome and back. The Mille Miglia collection stems from the passion for classic cars nurtured by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, co-president of Chopard. Not only a collector but also active driver, he takes part in the race every year.
The new Mille Miglia 2018 Race Edition, issued to celebrate 30 years of partnership with “la corsa più bella del mondo”, it is water-resistant up to 50 metres imposing its lines in a 42 mm-diameter case.
Its silver-toned dial as well as the font on the snailed counters, evoke the classic car dashboard enhanced by the contrasting red accents of the Mille Miglia logo.
Its short streamlined lugs embrace a black calfskin bracelet with red-stitching and black rubber lining inspired by 1960s Dunlop racing tyres tread.
The 42 - power reserve, the COSC certificate and an exhibition back case with screws bearing Mille Miglia logo around its rim and the special transfer-printed inscription reading “Chopard & Mille Miglia - 30 anni di passione”, complete this exclusive, functional and sophisticated timekeeper. A limited edition that embodies the classic racing spirit.
The new Mille Miglia chronograph 2018 Race Edition will be produced in a limited and numbered edition of 1.000 pieces in steel and 100 pieces in steel and 18 carat rose gold.
The watch is available at the boutique Veschetti, official dealer Chopard for Brescia.
