Chopard’s new sports watch, the Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed black, is born of its passion for classic motor racing. Cloaked in deep black, this powerful model joins the Mille Miglia GTS collection launched in 2015 and inspired by the legendary Italian competition for which Chopard has been serving as official timekeeper since 1988. Sophisticated design and technical excellence combine in this exclusive timepiece powered by a Chopard calibre and chronometer-certified by the COSC.
With its red “RossaCorsa” detailing, its oversized numerals recalling 1950s dashboards, its engine-style finishing and its strap featuring a vintage Dunlop racing tyre-tread motif, the new Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed black – issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition – perpetuates the Chopard classic racing spirit.
This iconic “RossaCorsa”, the shade formerly allocated to Italy in motor-racing competitions, is one of the “racing colours” that served to identify rival nationalities. The superlumionva-painted oversized 6 and 12 o’clock Arabic numerals stand out clearly against the dial. Evoking the dashboards on classic cars, they meet the legibility demands of the Italian race that takes place in any weather. Reflecting the same care for details, the broad facetted dagger-shaped hands and the black metallised applied hour-markers are painted with a luminescent substance, thereby accentuating the sporting nature of this prestigious timepiece.
Endowed with a generous 60-hour power reserve, this mechanical self-winding movement powers the hours, minutes, seconds and date functions. A symbol of prowess and high technical standards, this mechanism features grooved bridges with exclusive finishes echoing the cooling fins on racing cars.
