2010 Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono

       One of the best-known luxury goods manufacturers, Chopard was created by an enthusiast entrepreneur of the 19th century, Louis-Ulysse Chopard, and, through the years, it started to be associated with a fashion icon, and respected trendsetter, when it comes to exceptional jewelry, elegant accessories and luxury wristwatches. Fateful to its life-guiding principles and philosophy, the company produced countless timepieces defined by unmatched distinction and mechanical excellence, extremely appreciated by the watch connoisseurs worldwide.

       During its centenary existence, the brand experienced a privileged partnership with the adrenalin-inflicting world of motor sports, and created countless timepieces inspired by the sporty design of classic racecars. Among the watch collectors who share their profound passion for high-end exclusive timepieces, with another deep passion for car rallies, it is well known that Chopard produced one of the most beautiful watches dedicated to 1000 Mille Miglia Race. Recently Chopard introduced its latest creation dedicated to this prestigious event- the superb 2010 Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Watch, a model, which boasts powerful sporty lines and impressive mechanical sophistication.

       The watch features a sleek round case, performed in either steel or 18-karat rose gold, which demonstrates smooth aerodynamic curves and high-end satin finish. The sturdy architecture of the case incorporates a bezel equipped with tachometer scale, a screw-lock crown fitted with the Mille Miglia signature arrow, and large chronograph pushers. Surprisingly for a watch with a sapphire crystal case-back, the new Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono Watch boasts 100-meters water-resistance.


       The watch features a sporty dial, with interesting vintage accents, inspired by the retro sports cars dashboards, such as the elongated Arabic numeral hour markers or the rhodium-gray engine-turned. The minute circle is furthermore, accented in red, the emblematic color of the Mille Miglia Race. The highly legible dial of the watch is fitted with luminescent-coated hour and minutes hands and indices, and it is shielded by a sapphire crystal, fitted with anti-glare coating.

       At the heart of the remarkable 2010 Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono watch, beats a high precision, 25 jewels, self-winding mechanical movement, with COSC-chronometer certification, which alternates at a frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour, and guarantees the upmost timekeeping accuracy and reliability, asides from a generous 46-hour power reserve. The movement ensures hours, minutes, second’s functions as well as a chronograph function revealed through a central second’s hand, as well as through two counters, for 30-minutes, located at 12 o’clock, and 12-hours, located at 6 o’clock. Furthermore, the watch features a stop seconds mechanism and a round date aperture, located at 3 o’clock, beneath a magnifying lens.

       Especially created for a modern, charismatic man, the new Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Chrono comes matched with a sporty natural rubber strap, decorated with the Dunlop Racing motif, emblematic for the Mille Miglia Collection and it will probably be available for a price tag around $15,000.00.
