In conjunction with the 2018 Mille Miglia race – that Chopard has been the official timekeeper of since 1988 – the Swiss watchmaker introduced the Mille Miglia GTS Power Control Grigio Speciale.

The watch is presented in a 43 mm x 11.43 mm matte titanium case with anthracite dial that features a uniquely textured “stippled” surface, contrasted by a “Rosso Corsa” red-tipped central seconds hand, a red “1000 MIGLIA” logo framing the date aperture, and a red hand with red Empty marking on the fuel gauge (which represents a mainspring power reserve of approximately 60-hours).

The applied indices, numerals, and hour and minute hands, with a black luminescent material, along with a black 0-60 bezel, for a sporty and aggressive look.

Visible on the backside is the COSC-certified automatic caliber 01.08-C which beats at 4Hz, measures 28.60 mm x 4.95 mm, with 40 jewels, 251 total components, and a 60-hours power reserve.

This 1000 piece limited edition comes with a gray Cordura fabric strap. Water-resistance is 100 meters. Retail is $8,220.
