Mille Miglia “Jacky Ickx Edition 4

The makings of a champion

The Watch Quote™ - September 11th, 2006

Jacky Ickx is a living legend in the automobile world. His impressive track record makes him one of the greatest 20th century champions. In particular, he holds the absolute record of 6 victories in the Le Mans 24 Hours Race. Now retired from the race tracks, Jacky Ickx continues to live out his passion through the famous Mille Miglia race, supported by Chopard for almost 20 years.

To celebrate this encounter, the brand has already created three limited edition watches specifically dedicated to him. The fourth is now on the starting line, designed (as were the first three) in accordance with the champion’s wishes: “For this watch, I challenged Chopard to bring together three elements to which I am extremely attached: the “flyback” function (which allows you to launch a new timing operation without needing to stop and reset the hands); a large date display, and of course the unique 24-hour counter. Mission accomplished. The mastery, know-how and professionalism of this prestigious brand once again command my respect and admiration.”

The Mille Miglia “Jacky Ickx Edition” is equipped with an imposing steel case with screw-lock push-buttons and crowns. Its black dashboard style dial sports three dynamically overlapping white counters. In tribute to Jacky Ickx’ six wins in the ultimate endurance challenge, the chronograph movement duly chronometer-certified by the COSC is distinguished by its 24-hour totalizer and the case-back carrying the symbolic 6/24 engraving.

Technique, style and elegance
