For decades, Italy has been home to legendary tradition: the Mille Miglia motorsports race. It has seen its fair share of changes throughout the years to become the colourful celebration that it is now. Today, the Mille Miglia is a regular race with a very special stipulation: only vintage and classic cars produced no later than 1957 can be used. Combining tradition with innovation, elegance, and creativity with a backdrop of Italian architecture and mountainscapes, it is truly in a class of its own. For the past 30 years, Chopard has been a faithful sponsor and official timekeeper to this wonderful event. In celebration of this partnership, Chopard is presenting a brand-new addition to the Mille Miglia collection—the Mille Miglia GTS Power Control Grigio Speciale.Chopard first introduced the Mille Miglia collection in 2015. The collection is borne out of Chopard’s passion for classic racing. Sophisticated aesthetics and technical excellence come together to create timepieces that fans of horology and motorsports would be proud to own. The Mille Miglia GTS Power Control Grigio Speciale with its Rosso Corsa red, grey, and black detailing, oversized numerals evoking 1950s car dashboards, and its Cordura fabric strap, is the embodiment of all that the Chopard and Mille Miglia stand for.
