Chopard 1000 Miglia Chrono Limited Edition 2009

The 1000 Miglia Chrono Limited Edition 2009 represents a return to historical roots. Inspired by an iconic model within the collection, the first ever featuring the famous rubber strap designed after the Dunlop Racing tire from the 60s, the newcomer plays on classic shapes, optimal readability and understated elegance. The latest 1000 Miglia chronograph features a 42 mm-diameter case on the famous natural rubber Dunlop Racing strap. Graced with a ruthenium dial, this sporty model is driven by a mechanical chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC.

A tribute to one of the star models in the collection, the new 1000 Miglia Chrono Limited Edition 2009 is a contemporary expression of a best seller from the late 1990s. Its black sunburst dial displays hours, minutes and small seconds as well as the date which is displayed between 4 and 5 o’clock. It also features 12-hour and 30-minute chronograph counters. A tachometric scale framing the dial, superluminova-coated numerals and hands, and a red-tipped central chronograph second hand harmoniously round off this model and guarantee perfect readability.

Devotees of such fine mechanisms will be delighted to note that the heart of the 1000 Miglia Chrono Limited Edition 2009 beats to the cadence of a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement that is chronometer-certified by the COSC – a sure token of reliability and precision. Oscillating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, it has an approximately 42-hour power reserve. This mechanical movement is endowed with a stop seconds system enabling extremely accurate time setting.

The 1000 Miglia Chrono Limited Edition 2009 comes on a natural black rubber strap – featuring a 1960s Dunlop Racing tyre-tread motif – fitted with a pin buckle and is issued in a steel 2009-piece limited edition.
