Swiss watch manufacture Chopard celebrates 25 years as sponsor of the Mille Miglia in 2014, while the Porsche Club of America celebrates 60 years of existence in 2015. Both represent incredible milestones in the history of the world of automobiles.

The Chopard Mille Miglia for the Porsche Club of America can be ordered immediately with delivery expected for early December. This watch can be easily ordered online at www.pcatime.com.
