The Mille Miglia – famous vintage car race turned into legend over the years – was born in 1927 under the impetus of two young Italian, Brescia-born counts. This prestigious, epic event featuring endurance racing cars sets off every year in May from Brescia to Rome, travelling more than 1,600 km through Italy’s most beautiful landscapes. The Mille Miglia is today one of the most highly anticipated events in Italy. The race’s Grand Start attracts numerous spectators from all over the country to watch this procession of classic cars, each more extraordinary than the last.
Combining elegance and precision, Chopard has been part of the adventure since 1988, carrying on the dream and the tradition of this illustrious annual event by celebrating each year’s race with a limited edition “Mille Miglia” watch. Taking its inspiration from the race and watch collection, the House of Chopard is now opening a new olfactory chapter in the Mille Miglia fragrance collection for men with Mille Miglia Chrono.
