Petrolicious Exclusive: Limited Edition Chopard Mille Miglia Classic Chronographs Are Available For Pre-Order
In tasteful tribute to what is perhaps the most recognizable symbol of motorsport—twin racing stripes—Chopard is releasing a limited run of its iconic Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph, and we are pleased to announce that the timepiece is available for pre-sale exclusively through the Petrolicious Shop until September 27th. Only 50 Classic Chronograph Racing Stripes Edition watches will be produced.
Sports cars and chronographs are consistent partners in the world of mechanical beauty, and while the history of such things predates anyone living today the advent and advance of satellite-calibrated digital instrumentation will never render a well-made wristwatch obsolete; there is no replacement for taste. Style always endures.
Chopard understands the dual functions of a timepiece as both a precision instrument and an aesthetic statement, and their Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph offers a beautiful homage to the history of motorsport in a tidy package of Swiss horological engineering that builds on the brand’s legacy of clean and inspired design as it moves it into the future. With a COSC-certified movement (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, the official Swiss chronometer testing institute), there’s not arguing the timekeeping abilities of the watch, and Chopard’s strong commitment to the heritage and preservation of racing manifests here in a clean, logical, masculine design that evokes the forms and instrumentation found in the types of cars we at Petrolicious are especially fond of.
The Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph has been a staple of the Swiss watchmaker’s line for some time, but the piece pictured here (the Racing Stripes edition) will only be produced in a quantity of 50 and sold in the USA, and is available exclusively through Petrolicious until September 27th. Further details on purchasing and full specifications can be found here, in the Shop.
