A thousand and one passions

The Mille Miglia Rally is a story of longevity fuelled by passion : that of the rally itself, founded in 1927, interrupted thirty years later and resumed in 1977 ; and that of Chopard, which has been its main partner since 1988. Among the classic car enthusiasts who bring life to this race, considered the most beautiful in the world, Chopard co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele does far more than merely represent the brand. He hascompeted about 30 times, choosing his codrivers from among his friends or family, and this year his daughter Caroline-Marie assisted him in driving his Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. As usual, the 2019 automotive adventure continues with a new watch, the Mille Miglia 2019 Race Edition, but Chopard is also unveiling three other models, including the Mille Miglia GTS Power Control in steel and rose gold. Its affiliation with the “gentleman driver” spirit and the Italian rally can be seen in the date window bearing the Mille Miglia logo, in the power reserve indicator shaped like a fuel gauge, as well as in the 1960s Dunlop tire-tread profile embossed on the rubber lining of the strap. Any beautiful bodywork deserves to have a high-performance engine on board, and behind the transparent back engraved with the inscription “Brescia-Rome-Brescia” – the rally route – beats a COSC-certified in-house caliber.
