Shifting gears, the up-to-the-minute dial is a testament to Chopard’s dedication to innovation and racing. This silver-gray piece, marked by a subtle circular satin-brushed finish, uses a fierce blue for the hands, hour markers and bezel inlay. Strategically implementing batontype hands, large and rimmed in an intense blue, in addition to the finishing of hour markers in a blue hue, legibility was Chopard’s main priority when designing the piece. This is reflected in the enlarged date at 3 o’clock, also cut into the underside of the transparent sapphire crystal.

Just as racers rely on accuracy, Chopard co-president and car enthusiast Karl-Friedrich Scheufele envisioned an ultrareliable and well-proven self-winding caliber. Improving the precision potential of the piece with a beat frequency of 4 hertz and a 48-hour power reserve, the watch has only picked up speed since its original model—keeping up with speeds from 60 to 400 km/h through the chronograph sweep-seconds hand.


Finally, Chopard and Mille Miglia agreed that more accessible technology would make this piece a driving force in the industry. Equipping users with features like mushroom-like pushers for easy operation and a large-diameter crown for a sturdy grip, its potential is nothing short of impressive. Other outstanding features include a large-diameter crown, gold-toned calfskin strap lined with rubber and a blue leather strap, all of which create the vintage racing effect.

Embedding masculinity, racing and innovation into a stunning timepiece, this chronometer-certified chronograph undoubtedly lives up to the Chopard standard.
