It should be said that both limited editions are versions of the more classic Mille Miglia design, and it is the small details that give them a special charm that enhances their vintage aesthetics. The latest example of the versatility of the Mille Miglia Classic was seen last year with the spectacular Mille Miglia 2020 Race Edition dressed in an all-black look.

This time, Chopard opts for the traditional polished finish of its 42 mm diameter and 12.67 mm thick steel case, featuring a wide stepped bezel, piston-shaped pushers and a crown with an engraved balance wheel. The back, which includes a sapphire crystal, displays on its ring the red arrow of the Mille Miglia and the engraving of the Raticosa limited edition. Although the crown is screwed down, the watch is water-resistant to only 50 meters. Given its sporty vocation, it would be appreciated if it could be increased to 100 meters in future editions.

On the dial, its tricompax 3-6-9 configuration shows the small seconds at 3 o’clock, the 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and the 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock, all of them with different scales. In addition, each subdial has its function written on it, a detail that is seamlessly integrated and adds to its charm. A tachymeter scale on the perimeter flange complements the hour scale, the latter consisting of Arabic numerals in recognizable historical typography, although most of them are “covered” by the large totalizers. This design picks up on that of the 2014, 2016 and 2018 Chopard Mille Miglia Race Edition, and in my opinion suits it best.
