THE ESSENCE OF THE COMPETITION
Chopard continues to forge links between cars and watchmaking with a new limited edition released for the 70th anniversary of Porsche.
The name Porsche is closely connected to a passion for competition and for luxury sports cars. Chopard wanted to celebrate the anniversary of the German carmakers with a limited edition of just 50 numbered watches. While the Porsche 911 is the German firm’s flagship model, for the Swiss watchmakers, the Mille Miglia chronograph is the ideal timepiece to link watchmaking and sports cars. So it was quite logical to choose this model for the occasion. The brushed and silvered dial features a blue stripe like the kind seen on a racing car chassis. The extra-large figures on the dial also resemble the numbers on a sports car bonnet and doors.
The model will only be available in the United States. It is worn with a leather strap with a rubber inside lining inspired by the tread on 1960s Dunlop racing car tyres.
