Mille Miglia GTS Chrono Limited Edition Italy 2023: A Tribute to Italian Motorsports

Chopard's 100-Piece Lucent SteelTM Collection for Racing Enthusiasts

The Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Chrono Limited Edition Italy 2023, a tribute to Italy and the legendary 1000 Miglia race, showcases the brand’s dedication to precision timekeeping and motorsports. With a limited edition of only 100 pieces crafted from Lucent SteelTM, this chronometer-certified chronograph embodies the essence of masculine elegance, mechanical precision, and watchmaking performance.

The Mille Miglia GTS Chrono Limited Edition Italy 2023 is inspired by the 41st edition of the re-enacted 1000 Miglia event, which took place from June 13th to 17th. The “Corsa Più Bella del Mondo” (the most beautiful race in the world) takes participants on an intensive journey from Brescia to Rome and back, with the route changing each year.

Designed with a focus on legibility, this timepiece features large baton-type hands and hour-markers treated with Super-LumiNova®, ensuring excellent readability even in low-light conditions. The red-tipped hands on the chronograph counters pay homage to the iconic red color associated with the 1000 Miglia.

A chronometer-certified self-winding movement powers this limited edition watch, ensuring exceptional precision and dependability. The ultra-reliable calibre has a frequency of 4 Hz, a power reserve of 48 hours, and an olive-green bezel with a tachymeter scale. The user-friendly components, such as engraved mushroom-type pushers and a ratcheted crown for better grip and simplicity of use, are part of the practical design.

The Mille Miglia GTS Chrono Limited Edition Italy 2023 is complemented by a brown calfskin strap lined with rubber, designed to evoke the tread pattern of 1960s Dunlop Racing tires, further emphasizing its connection to the world of racing.

Crafted from Lucent Steel™, an exclusive alloy developed by Chopard over four years, this watch’s ‘bodywork’ possesses surgical quality and is 50 percent harder than conventional steel. Lucent Steel™ is not only resilient but also responsibly produced with 80% recycled steel, making it environmentally friendly and hypoallergenic.

The Mille Miglia GTS Chrono Limited Edition Italy 2023 reflects Chopard’s dedication to the 1000 Miglia race and the world of motorsports. Chopard will give a percentage of the earnings from the sale of this limited edition to the victims of the recent floods in Emilia Romagna as a show of sympathy. This wristwatch represents the ultimate tribute to Italian motorsports and the spirit of racing, embodying endurance, elegance, and a passion for high-quality watchmaking.
