Fine, Accurate and Beautiful Design

When the president clasped the steering wheel and drove his imposing Porsche 550 Spyder RS car, he absolutely grasped the full road driving, the steering wheel was accurate, the brakes were stable and fast enough, and the driving car could not tolerate the slightest mistake. Just like the design of this 42mm chronograph watch, the driver must be able to read the scale of the dial outer bezel speedometer at a glance, while at the same time taking into account the road conditions in front of the road. This precise, easy-to-read and beautiful watch with the three silver chronograph sub-dials is inspired by the sports dashboard on the dark grey dial with hour, minute and second display scales. The Mille Miglia 2018 Race Edition is not just a simple reading tool, it is also a wrist device that can help gentleman drivers.

An Exclusive Timepiece Compatible with Superior Performance and Sophisticated Style

The design is inspired by the corrugated dial of the racing dashboard, which is known to be compatible with the performance and retro style of this watch. The red Mille Miglia logo is located at 12 o’clock, the calendar display is located at 4:30, and the design is subtly covered with a luminous coating. Every detail has been carefully conceived. Because the Mille Miglia is a 1000-mile test of endurance after all, it takes 4 days to travel between Brescia and Rome for more than 1,600 kilometers. When arriving at the end, it is often night. Therefore, the pointer coated with luminous coating can clearly read the average speed of the driver, and the ultimate style watch that the gentleman driver can’t put it down.
