Chopard Mille Miglia Porsche Club of America, A Limited Edition For The PCA’s 60th Anniversary
Earlier this year, Chopard announced their sponsorship of Porsche Motorsports, and now the company is releasing a new timepiece, a new Mille Miglia created for the Porsche Club of America. Porsche Club of America has grown to great heights since its humble origins in 1955, and so it has joined with Chopard to celebrate its 60th anniversary next year with a run of 66 limited-edition PCA Mille Miglia watches for club members.
Sixty of the 42-millimeter automatic chronographs are made in stainless steel, and six in 18-karat rose gold. The limited PCA watch is identified as such by its blue face with white and red accents, the blue “tire tread” straps, and, of course, the club logo printed on the sapphire crystal back in full color alongside the edition number.
The self-winding mechanical movement is chronometer-certified by C.O.S.C., so it displays hours, minutes, seconds, and date with supreme accuracy. The stopwatch function can be used in conjunction with the tachymeter scale to gauge fuel consumption and average speed, a great tool for time-speed-distance rallies and other motorsport events.
