COVER-Chopard-His&Hers-Mille-Miglia-EiT

Chopard is updating their racing themed “Mille Miglia” collection, for Baselworld 2017. They have restyled the XL version of the Mille Miglia unveiled in 2016. But, more than that this new release comes accompanied by a watch for her, as well.

Maybe the fact that Chopard’s co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele and his wife Christine, tend to compete together at the celebrated “Corsa Più belle del Mondo” was behind the idea of releasing a pair of ‘His & Hers’ timepieces. Either way, be it what roughly translates to “The Most Beautiful Race in the World”, or the “Mille Miglia” races that already officially lend their name to this series of watches; the race to acquire them is closing iN!

Chopard Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph, for Men

First up let’s focus on the men’s version, a “Chopard Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph”. The case size has gone down from last year’s 46mm to a 42mm made of stainless-steel. Its transparent case back allows a direct view to the inner workings of this timepiece. Also features a stainless-steel fluted crown surrounded by two traditional push-pieces to operate the chronograph functions. Water-resistance on this watch can reach up to 50 meters (164 feet).

Time is exhibited on a satin-brushed black dial with white Arabic numerals and white minute index markers circling around the dial. There are three sub-dials: a sub-seconds at the 3 o’clock position, a 12-hour counter at the 6 o’clock position and a 30-minute counter at the 9 o’clock position. Also includes a date aperture between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions and a tachymeter scale circling the dial near the bezel.

Its Arabic numerals and rhodiumed baton-type hour and minute’s hands have all under gone a superluminova coating, for an enhanced legibility. While the counter chronograph hands only share their baton shape in common and the sweep-seconds hand has a red tip, to distinguish itself from the others.
