Mille Miglia ago?

Feb 06, 2024,02:43 AM

Just snapped a shot of our Mille Miglia 2014 Race Edition the other day, which had me thinking of the line. Yes, there are still annual new models (as far as I know) that kind of keep up the spirit. But at the same time I feel that the excitement of the earlier years might have been lost somewhat and that other brands have muscled in successfully on the territory that Chopard us so carefully cultivated over quite some time. Any ideas or comments? πŸ§πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

My take on the MM

 By: MilDiver : February 6th, 2024-06:49
The MM has few "properties" yuo can look at: 1. Its a Chopard, for the company collectors. but as a Chopard, most models are quite simple and not interested horologicaly.. 2. Its a MM "theme". I don't see too many MM theme collectors, if any. it's not F1 ... 

I think they used to have a design language

with the GT XL and that sort. I quite liked that modern twist. But most of the first 10 years of mille miglia watches, and a lot of the recent ones, have a sort of faux vintage look that appears to be, not awful, but quite deliberately not as nice as, say...

The 1963 plays in a different league (OK, there was one MM sharing the same movement) 😁

While I agree with what you say…

They used to have a much stronger presence in the for instance vintage car enthusiast scene than seems to be the case today. Wonder what really changed there 🧐

Thanks so much - very comfortable indeed πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»

And looking a bit less ordinary to boot 😁

Agreed on the MM line.

Somehow find strap makers nowadays often more imaginative than watch makers 😁
