There will be 1,000 pieces in steel – marking the 1,000 miles of the race – and 100 pieces in 18k gold and steel, each with an inscription on the caseback: “Chopard & Mille Miglia 30 anni di passione.” The watch is designed as a tribute to classic automobiles, with a dashboard-inspired dial, a notched crown resembling a gas-tank cap, and chronograph pushers shaped like engine pistons. The strap is perforated in the style of driving gloves.
