Best New Watches: Chopard Mille Miglia 2018 Race Edition
The Mille Miglia is probably the finest rally held in the country that holds cars in the highest esteem in the world. From the latest supercars to the most precious legendary classic cars, this event hosts them all. On the last day over three hundred Ferrrais join the procession, making this the greatest collection of cars you could ever hope to see in one place. This Italian car extravaganza should be on everyone’s bucket list, and this watch from Chopard is officially awarded to the winner each year. Or you could just buy it as a wonderful momento of this fabulous event.
Partner and official timekeeper of La Corsa Più Bella Del Mondo for 30 years now, Chopard has created the special Mille Miglia 2018 Race Edition to celebrate this anniversary. The timepiece subtly evokes Mille Miglia racing cars from 1927 to 1940, with its anthracite engined-turned dial inspired by classical dashboards. Housed in a 42mm stainless steel case, the self-winding movement is COSC-certified. The Mille Miglia 2018 Race Edition wears the Special Mille Miglia 30 anniversary partnership logo engraved on the case-back with a new leather strap with rubber lining and emblematic red details.
