Good morning people!
How was your weekend? Hope you had a great time, enjoying the last bit of summer here in the Mediterranean or looking up the new fall collections if you ‘re somewhere up north! Things were pretty smooth here at the Mansion, and we ‘re all set for a week of bringing you the latest in everything that’s dope!
I noticed during the weekend that time goes by pretty fast when you ‘re having a good time and you need to keep track of it, so this takes us to our new Candy Story, the Chopard Mille Miglia.
The Chopard Mille Miglia is a classic piece, highly valued in the world of watches, an object of desire among collectors, yet affordable and suitable for everyday use. It’s history is tied to both the Chopard brand and the timeless Mille Miglia race, which was an open road endurance racing that made Gran Turismo sports cars like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, BMW and Porsche famous.
So, what’s so special about this particular chronograph? Well, being a product of the Geneva-based company, it boasts exquisite craftsmanship and timeless design. Each year Chopard develops a new Mille Miglia model, the Participant pieces, ever since they decided to promote this vintage cars race in 1988. The watches have the word Participant engraved on the back. The collection also features the Special, Racing Colors, Grand Turismo, Jacky Icks, Quartz and Classic editions. Once you wear one, you instantly feel the quality. It’s very light and comfortable and features automatic winding in both directions with central oscillating weight, as well as tachymeter functions. The Classic features stainless steel casing, the classic rubber tire-like band, sapphire glass and silver dials. Titanium casing is also available in some editions, as well as stainless steel and 18K pink gold. The power reserve is an industry standard 46 hours, so no complaints there.
All in all, this is a beautiful sports watch, it’s simplicity and elegance being it’s brilliance! It’s lightweight and affordable, an everyday chronograph with a great history for everyone in the know. After all, Candy is all about quality, so this week take a pause and think of classic cars, classic time pieces and a place where everything is Candy.
