Meet Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Speed Silver Watch

Aug 13, 2012
Chopard is pleased to unveil its new Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Speed Silver watch to join the brand’s signature Racing Colours collection. The timepiece pays tribute to the legendary German racing cars, the stars of the motor-racing competitions in the 1930s.

The 44mm case of the new Chopard watch is presented in polished titanium. The bezel displays the tachometric scale. The sporty look of the watch is accentuated by aerodynamic titanium pushers. The shade of the dial is finely reflected by the shade of the stitching on the black leather strap.

The case construction incorporates a screw-locked crown and boasts 100-meter water-resistance. The crown is decorated with a Mille Miglia arrow logo.

The brushed silvery dial features hollowed and snailed silvery counters. The time is indicated by Superluminova-coated rhodiumed hour and minute hands. The inner bezel ring is completed with transferred minute numerals in the color that makes one think of dashboard speedometers. The glance is also caught by oversized black Arabic numerals at 6 and 12 o’clock transferred beneath the sapphire crystal.

The dial provides supreme readability – it is shielded by a glare-proofed sapphire crystal with a magnified date window at 3 o’clock.

The transparent case-back is also equipped with a sapphire crystal and allows to drop a glance at the movement proudly bearing the Speed Silver logo.

The mechanical self-winding movement offers precision guaranteed by the COSC-chronometer certification. Operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the 25-jewel movement gives an advantage of a 46-hour power reserve. It animates the following functions - hours, minutes, small seconds at 9 o’clock, date display and chronograph function. The latter is presented via the central sweep seconds hand with a red tip, 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock and 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock.

The Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Speed Silver watch has been created in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces.
