This Chopard Mille Miglia watch has undergone the exclusive Zagato personalisation process. The “engine” is a COSC certified self-winding chronograph movement with date and dual-time displays. The “chassis” is a 42.5 mm steel case with a DLC coating – a technical treatment chosen for its extreme scratch-resistance. It comes in two variations: one all-black and the other fitted with a rose-gold bezel featuring a red insert bearing the 24-hour dual-time graduation. The details of the “bodywork” are a joint endeavour. The chronograph pusher matches the colour of the bezel – either black or in rose gold. In both versions, it has a red-lacquered tip, a nod to the symbolic colour of both Zagato and the Mille Miglia. The “upholstery” (the strap) typically evokes the work of the Milanese bodywork specialist and features a distinctive central groove that echoes the architecture of Zagato’s iconic “double bubble” roof, while the bright red stitching on the leather is a classic Zagato signature feature. The Zagato “Z” logo composes the motif adorning the crown and also forms the fine grey technical grid pattern occupying the entire surface of the dial. The Mille Miglia Zagato is issued in a limited series of 500 pieces each for the black DLC-coated steel version and the same number for the two-tone version with an 18-carat rose gold finish. It is available in Chopard boutiques around the world.
