2012 Chopard Mille Miglia GMT Chrono

Named after the prestigious car competition covering the 1,000-mile (1,600 km) stretch from Brescia to Rome and back again, the Mille Miglia is acknowledged by connoisseurs as “la corsa più bella del mondo” (the most beautiful race in the world).

The Mille Miglia GMT Chronograph features a self-winding movement, COSC certified chronometer, stop seconds function, dual time-zone display as well as oversized counters at 12 and 6 o’clock for enhanced readability.

It is available in either steel or rose gold and will be limited to 2,012 and 250 units respectively. The 42.4 mm-diameter timepiece features a satin-brushed crown guard, as well as the iconic natural rubber Dunlop Racing strap with the famous 1960s racing tire tread motif.
