Chopard’s Racing Chronograph Gets a New Range of Colorful Dials

The brand is celebrating its partnership with the Mille Miglia road race in the best way possible.


Watchmaker Chopard is celebrating 30 years of sponsoring the Mille Miglia road race in Italy with a quintet of colorful, limited edition chronographs. Each color is meant to represent a different country’s racing color: red for Italy, silver for Germany, green for Great Britain, blue for France and yellow for Belgium. Design-wise, they’re an excellent departure from more staid silver, black and white chronographs.

According to A Blog to Watch, the movement inside appears to be modified version of ETA’s 2894-2 automatic chronograph movement. That is housed in a 42mm stainless steel case that’s just over 12mm thick (pretty slim for an automatic chronograph). The watch comes affixed to a rally-style perforated calfskin strap.

This being a limited release, only 300 pieces of each will be made. Pricing has yet to be announced, but given the non-limited version of the same watch retails for $5,050, expect them to sell for a little more than that.
