In 1988 Chopard partnered with the prestigious Mille Miglia and the Chopard Mille Miglia was born! I am honoured to be offering THE original Chopard Mille Miglia that started it all from 1988. This beautiful watch features a crisp white dial with subtle highlights of red that flows to the bezel where it states "1000 MIGLIA" at 12o'clock. This watch houses a Quartz ETA 255.241 which has a monopusher chronograph, no running seconds on the dial but with a push of that button you can time up to 30 minutes, fitting for timing speed with the inner tachymetric scale.
It is incredible to see how much the Mille Miglia range by Chopard has changed over the years, this beautiful sized watch sits so well on the wrist and really pops. Plus what a conversation starter a watch like this would be, the name Chopard is known around the world and the Mille Miglia is known by most car fans, the merging of two popular worlds and this was the first for the partnership!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork, the watch is pre-owned but in fantastic condition and has been well looked after over the years. The watch did receive a full overhaul in March 2019, paperwork for that can be provided. The watch is running flawlessly and looks a million pounds on the brown leather strap.
I really love this watch and the Chopard Mille Miglia is a range I would love to add to the personal collection at some point, the importance of this watch within that range is unquestionable. What a brilliant and great looking piece, and for a great price!
