A Mille Miglia revisited by Zagato
This can be a Chopard Mille Miglia observe that has gone through the special Zagato personalisation course of action. It stems from the dialogue concerning the 2 brands, equally as 1 would assume to discover between a bodywork professional and the vehicle maker whose system it's working with. The ‘engine' is really a self-winding chronograph movement with date and dual-time displays. Chosen by Chopard for its reliability and sturdiness, this is the calibre that generally drives the Mille Miglia replica watches. It is actually officially certified because of the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, the COSC, a sure token of its high-precision rating.

In both versions, it's got a red-lacquered tip, a nod to the symbolic colour of the two Zagato along with the Mille Miglia. The upholstery (the strap) typically evokes the work on the Milanese bodywork expert. Its lines featuring a distinctive central groove echo the architecture of its ‘double bubble' roof, though the bright red stitching on the leather is really a typical Zagato signature feature.
