How to make black shine with extraordinary luster? How to make black show the beauty of low-key elegance?

No matter how the change is performed, the concise and modern Chanel J12 watch is always a masterpiece in the field of watchmaking.

Family Heritage Spirit

The Scheufele family is passionate about the Mille Miglia, and this enthusiasm is passed down from generation to generation. All family members have attended the Mille Miglia. The co-president of Chopard started his career on the track of the Mille Miglia under the professional eye of his father, Karl Scheufele. For a father, this is always a very special and precious moment. Initially, his father passed his passion for the antique car to him. Obviously, the desire to pass on enthusiasm is so fascinating. I am passionate about fine machinery from the bottom of my heart. Whether it is watch machinery or automobile machinery, what better than this? However, the Mille Miglia is a rigorous event that must face all sorts of tests. Drivers must always bet 100% focused because there are no mistakes in the course. In addition to the inheritance, you must take care of teaching, sharing and companionship in order to avoid the trap, driving a sports car to win. The necessary conditions participating in the event are logically similar to the qualifications required by Chopard watchmakers.
