Keeping it in the family: Chopard Paul Miller Racing LE Mille Miglia GTXL



Swiss luxury watchmaking meets the high powered world of American Le Mans motor racing as Chopard introduces the Paul Miller Racing Limited Edition Mille Miglia GTXL.

The watch comes in stainless steel or in 18k rose gold. The watch is available with a leather or rubber tyre tread strap and set in 18k rose gold.

Both timepieces will be available at select Paul Miller dealerships and the Chopard boutique in New York City.

The watches are COSC-certified chronometers and water-resistant to 100 metres. The stainless steel version will be produced in a limited series of 100 pieces, while the 18k rose gold model is limited to just 25 pieces.

Significant presence


Chopard already enjoys a significant presence in the motorsports arena through its sponsorship of Italy’s Mille Miglia 1,000-mile drive from Brescia to Rome, and the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique race.

Both the Scheufele family, owners of Chopard and the Miller family have high regard for one another:

We are pleased to join forces with the Miller family. They have a strong passion for the sport that is shared with the Scheufele family. The Paul Miller brand is respected and trusted in the fine auto industry. The core values of both brands align to create a strategic and beneficial relationship.” Marc Hruschka, Chopard USA President & CEO.

Universally recognised


Chopard is a universally recognised luxury brand that has a long history of successful motorsport involvement. There are many synergies with the two brands. Both brands are family owned and operated. The bond is also built on the parallels of precision between fine watches and automobiles. We hope to host memorable experiences for both sets of clients. We look forward to a long and mutually fruitful relationship.Team owner Paul Miller

The Paul Miller Racing Limited Edition Mille Miglia GTXL in stainless steel retails for $9,650. The 18k rose gold version won’t leave the store for less than $26,010.
