Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph Racing Stripes USA Edition $5900
Spotted at the Rennsport Reunion VI at Laguna Seca 27 – 30 September 2018
We spotted the ‘Exclusive to the USA and Puerto Rico’, cool, sporty and sophisticated new Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph Racing Stripes USA edition. It oozes with that Chopard Gentlemens’ blend of passion, style and precision.
The blue racing stripes on the silver dial along with the open case back give the watch a strong identity with a vintage racing feel.
We all remember the ‘go-faster stripes’ of the 1970s and this model’s retro touch ticks along to the beat of a COSC-certified high-precision movement. The case is 42 mm in diameter and the watch limited to 50 pieces; the perfect Mille Miglia watch dedicated to gentlemen drivers.
Only available in the USA and Puerto Rico, the Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph Racing Stripes USA edition embodies the classic racing spirit cherished by Chopard and expressed in an elegant and masculine mode.
