Limited Edition Chopard Mille Miglia - sold new, July 2005, Elton John AIDS Foundation edition - Full set of box and papers, watch in like new condition having been serviced at Chopard in May 2018.

Whilst not all celebrity ventures into horology turn out well, Elton John's charitable collaboration with Chopard has been a resounding success amongst modern watch collectors. It features a unique chronograph design, a beautiful case construction and some stunning attention to detail on the dial. This is no gimmick: it's a serious chronograph watch which has been updated to modern colours and palettes, and has come out on top. Featuring a blue mother of pearl inner dial segment, broken up by three concentric-brushed chronograph subdials and Chopard's distinctive logo signature, the dial packs a punch without getting too busy. The black Arabic numerals, set against a satin steel ring, are beautifully designed and perfectly visible, with a date window complication between the 4 and 5 hour plots. 

The automatic movement powers itself with wrist movement, and features an exhibition case back with a glass insert which shows the complex inner workings which keep the Mille Miglia ticking. The case back features an impression of Elton John's signature and his link to the "AIDS Foundation" along with its production number as a division of the 2000 produced. 

What's on offer

A well-designed and beautifully finished Chopard twin-pusher chronograph with a solid stainless steel case, mother of pearl dial with date at 4, exhibition case back and automatic movement. The watch was returned to Chopard in 2018 for a service and polish, and has since been rarely worn but mostly spent time wrapped in plastic shrink to prevent any new marks appearing. Rest assured that this watch's case is flawless. The watch comes with a complete set of box and papers and the additional Chopard service warranty card from 2018. The strap has also been replaced by Chopard and is almost as new!
