About the Talk.

A story of passion and Italian elegance

It all began in 1988 when Chopard became partner and official timekeeper of the famous Mille Miglia classic car rally. This lasting union was born from the personal passion of Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, a keen collector’s car driver.

He played a trailblazing role in the watch industry by choosing to associate the world of classic racing with prestigious watchmaking. This now inseparable bond of love between fine mechanics and sporting performance proved the starting point for the much sought-after Mille Miglia watch collection.

The latter is distinguished by its virile, sporty models featuring high-precision mechanics with a chic exterior embodying the spirit of the legendary Italian competition dubbed the “world’s most beautiful race” by Enzo Ferrari. Each spring, the prestigious endurance rally sees more than 400 teams compete on a splendid thousand-mile (1,600 km) route running from Brescia to Rome and back.

For 30 years, at the very heart of the race, Chopard presents a limited series inspired by these legendary speed machines – the Mille Miglia Race Edition.

A family story

Chopard is one of the last family-run watchmaking and jewellery companies. Since the 1980s, Karl and Karin Scheufele’s children, Caroline and Karl-Friedrich, have played an active part in the company and are the current Co-Presidents.

Caroline Scheufele, who is responsible of the ladies’ collections, developed the jewellery section and later the high-end jewellery department while her brother Karl-Friedrich manages the men’s collections, and developed both the Classic Racing sports watches and the L.U.C fine watchmaking collections.

The Scheufele Family has always been very aware of their responsibilities in their journey to sustainable luxury, and has committed to using 100% ethical gold in all jewellery and watches since July 2018.

Both collections highlight Chopard’s association with motorsports, and we will bring a selection of the models to the event so your guests can have a closer look at them.
