Fire up your engines! In 2022 the 1000 Miglia is celebrating an anniversary, the 40th edition of the legendary classic car race from Brescia to Rome and back which will be held 15 to 18 June. Swiss jeweller and watchmaker Chopard as the main partner and official timekeeper of the event since 1988, has released two new takes on their popular Mille Miglia Race Editions.
Housed in a 44mm case Chopard Mille Miglia 2022 Race Edition is offered in stainless steel or two-tone stainless steel and 18k rose gold, with silver-toned dial with circular satin-brushed finish, for a brighter look.
Inside is a COSC-certified self-winding mechanical chronograph movement beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) with approximately 48 hours of power reserve.
Both watches feature a racing strap with a brown leather topside and blue rubber backing that’s designed to replicate a 1960 Dunlop tire tread.
The new Chopard Mille Miglia 2022 Race Edition is now available, the steel model is limited to 1,000 pieces and priced at EUR 7,730 (approx. $8,000) ; while the two-tone rose gold and stainless steel version will be limited to just 250 pieces and priced at EUR 11,400 (approx, $11,800 ).
