The new Chopard Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph has two versions, men and women, two dial sizes and different colors. None of their movements are made in-house, but they are COSC certified anyway. They are low-cost versions of the spectacular Chopard Mille Miglia Classic XL, and they share a lot about the beauty of the work. Below are two versions of the men’s 42mm version.
Watches bought by a couple in pairs are more popular in Asia than in Europe. In addition to marketing considerations, Chopard’s performance of classic male complications is also more feminine, which is for sure. There is no doubt that more and more women are interested in mechanical watches.
The dial is bold and unique, with large numbers with luminous coating. The tachymeter and fractional seconds scale are practical and complete, and the chronograph second hand with a red tip is long enough to easily read any part of the dial. The only thing I don’t like about the dial is the diagonally squeezed date window, but at least the numbers are so big that they are easy to read.
The men’s watch has a diameter of 42 mm and a thickness of 12.67 mm. It is made of steel, water resistant to 5 atmospheres, and has a black rubber strap. The Dunlop racing tread strap has become a classic of Chopard and is used in many of its Mille Miglia watches. The female watch has a diameter of 39 mm and a thickness of 11.83 mm, with a white rubber strap. The dial is in mother-of-pearl and the bezel is set with diamonds. As far as men’s style is concerned, the only thing missing is the tachymeter scale. I think no one will miss its absence.
Chopard FAKE did not tell us the manufacturer of the movement, only that it was just a self-winding movement that could run 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz), had a 42-hour power reserve and 37 jewels. It may be ETA 2894-2A based on 2892-2 with additional timing module. Astronomical clock certified by COSC. It can be viewed through the sapphire back cover.
