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 chronograph Mille Miglia 2019 Race Edition reinforces and affirms the partnership with “la corsa più bella del mondo”.
A robust and high-performance watch which does not renounce to his innate elegance.
The watch is water-resistant to 100 meters with a 44 mm diameter case, a polished stainless steel bezel with black aluminum inlay and exhibition back stamped with Mille Miglia logo and a blackened PVD treated checkerboard.
The silver-toned dial has two black counters and one silver snail counter, a glare-proofed sapphire crystal with magnified date window and the red “ Freccia Rossa” Mille Miglia logo. The cognac-coloured calfskin leather strap - with black rubber lining inspired by 1960s Dunlop racing tyres- completes this stunning chronometer certified timepiece and offers a 48-hours power reserve and a mechanical self-winding movement.
The new Mille Miglia 2019 Race Edition chronograph will be produced in a limited and numbered edition of 1000 pieces in stainless steel version and in 250 pieces in stainless steel and 18-carat rose gold version
The watch is available at the Veschetti boutique, Official Authorized Retailer for Brescia.
