Chopard Mille Miglia 2022 Race Edition: the collection of watches in homage to a legendary race
The Chopard Mille Miglia 2022 Race Edition model is a homage, always renewed and always slightly different, to the “Most Beautiful Race in the World”. The timepiece differs from the previous editions of the collection in several details, primarily the silver-gray dial characterized by a subtle circular satin finish and the use of an intense blue for the hands, indexes and bezel insert.
Like every model in the Mille Miglia collection, this new interpretation is designed according to the codes of masculine elegance, refinement and love for quality mechanics. The design features three technical pillars. The first is legibility, an essential quality for any watch intended for racing, especially on roads open to traffic.
This feature is expressed in the size of the baton hands, large and circled in bright blue, but also in the finish of the indexes that adopt the same blue in contrast. The attention to readability is also found in the size of the date at 3 o’clock, made more visible by a magnifying glass made in the lower part of the transparent sapphire crystal.
Finally, different finishes have been used to separate the functional areas of the dial. THE chronograph totalizers placed at 6 and 12 o’clock stand out for the blued edge and the transfer scale, more spacious than that of the small seconds at 9 o’clock. The counters are also distinguished by the tip of the hands which, like the central seconds hand, have a point red in homage to the color of the 1000 Miglia.
