Chopard Unveils Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono 2010 Watch

May 04, 2010
In 2010, Chopard unveils a new interpretation of its iconic sports watch, a true watchmaking classics - the Mille Miglia watch. The timepiece demonstrates a powerful design and outstanding technical characteristics.

The Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono 2010 watch features a case measuring 44 mm in diameter and sculptured in steel or 18K rose gold.

The elongated numerals on the dial add a vintage touch to the overall style of the watch. The rhodium-gray engine-turned dial will make you think of vintage sports car dashboards. As for the minute circle, it is created in black and red, the color of the famous race sponsored by the brand for over 20 years. The dial offers remarkable readability, being protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

The case construction boasts 100-meter water-resistance. It incorporates a bezel with a tachometric scale, a screw-lock crown featuring the signature Mille Miglia arrow, as well as broad chronograph pushers.

The sapphire crystal case-back of the new Chopard watch reveals a translucent black PVD limited edition inscription suggested by the race numbers of the cars participating in the rally.

The heart of the Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono 2010 watch may be admired via the see-through case-back. This is a mechanical self-winding movement, with a balance frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The reliability and precision of the 25-jewel movement are guaranteed by the COSC-chronometer certification.

The movement gives an advantage of a 46-hour power reserve and animates an impressive range of functions - hour, minute, date, small seconds, as well as the chronograph presented via a central seconds hand, and 30-minute and 12-hour counters. It incorporates a stop seconds mechanism for time-setting to the nearest second.

The Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono 2010 watch is coupled with a natural rubber Dunlop Racing strap, the design of which has been inspired by the 1960s racing tires. The strap is equipped with a folding clasp.
