Chopard Mille Miglia Gran Turismo XL Alfa Romeo Watch
This year is both the 150th anniversary of Chopard, as well as the 100th anniversary of Alfa Romeo. As anniversaries are a time for watches (duh), Chopard is making a limited edition Gran Turismo watch in their Mille Miglia collection for Afla that contains the signature red that Alfa Romeo cars seem to look best in. The watches are actually mostly black, but have high contrast hands in a cherry red tone. At 44mm wide, the watch will actually come in three versions. Two chronographs, and a three-hand Gran Turismo XL Chronometer model (actually, all models are technically certified Chronometers). The chronograph versions (like the one pictured) will come in a polished steel case (limited to 500 pieces), and a DLC coated steel case version (limited to 100 pieces). The three-hand model is in polished steel and limited to 500 pieces as well. Strap is your standard Mille Miglia Dunlap tire tread pattern in rubber, and inside the watches are Swiss automatic movements (base ETA). Really an awesome treat for the proud Alfa Romeo car owner.
