Chopard recently introduced a new version of their Mille Migilia GT XL Chronograph. This one is nearly identical to the last version, the main difference is the rose gold accents. It features a 44 x 14.5 mm black DLC treated stainless steel case with a contrasting 18k rose gold bezel.

On the right side of the case are integrated rose gold chronograph pushers and a screw-down rose gold crown. The crystal is anti-reflective and features white transferred numbers at 12 and 6 o’clock. On the back, “Speed Black” is written on the sapphire crystal caseback.

The dial is black and features the “Gran Turismo XL” logo, as well as the “1000 Migilia” logo. A 30-minute chronograph counter is at 12 ‘clock and a 12-hour counter is at 6 o’clock. The central seconds hand displays the chronograph seconds. The timekeeping seconds are displayed in the small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock. At 3 o’clock is a magnified date window.

Inside is a mechanical chronograph movement running at 28,800 vph. The movement has been certified by the COSC. Power-reserve is 48 hours. The bridges are adorned with “Côtes de Genève” decoration.

The strap is made of super soft natural black rubber with 1960s Dunlop Racing tire-tread motif and a folding clasp in DLC blackened steel. Limited to 500 timepieces worldwide. The price is $10,580. (Ref.168459-6001)
