Chopard has been the proud world sponsor and official timekeeper of 1000 Miglia since 1988.

Behind the deep connection that Chopard cultivates with the 1000 Miglia are values strongly ingrained in the Maison. Loyalty to a certain vision of elegance; a passion for classic cars that the Scheufele family has passed down from generation to generation; the desire to be at the heart of major events; and, above all, a commitment to high-quality watchmaking whose concepts stand the test of time.

ADNOC Distribution

ADNOC Distribution is the UAE’s leading fuel distributor and retail convenience store operator. As of 30 September 2022, the company operates 481 retail fuel service stations and 366 convenience stores across all seven emirates of the UAE, as well as 66 service stations in Saudi Arabia. It is the sole fuel distributor in Abu Dhabi and has a dominant market position in the northern emirates of Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Ajman, and Umm Al Quwain. With the signing of an agreement to acquire 50% of TotalEnergies Egypt, ADNOC Distribution entered the MENA region’s largest fuel market earlier this year. The company retails a range of fuels for different engine types, including Super 98 for high-performance vehicles.

The past few years have seen ADNOC Distribution grow its presence in Dubai. The fuel and convenience retailer now has 37 service stations in the emirate, including a flagship location on Shaikh Zayed Road that leverages advanced technologies – including smart cameras and digital screens at the pumps that deliver customers a personalized, digitally immersive, and seamless journey for both fuel and non-fuel purchases. The station also has a double-storey convenience store with energy-generating walkways – one of the numerous sources of renewable power at this ground-breaking service station.

The flagship station in Dubai wasn’t ADNOC Distribution’s first foray into developing futuristic retail solutions. In 2021, the company opened a fully autonomous, cashless ADNOC Oasis convenience store at ADNOC’s Sheikh Khalifa Energy Complex. Using cutting-edge AI, the latest payment technology, and the ADNOC app, customers are able to walk in, pick up their items, and walk out of the store with their ADNOC Wallet account automatically debited – eliminating the need for queues, cash, or even human interaction.

ADNOC Distribution fully supports the UAE’s objectives in the sustainability space. The company has, and continues to develop, its expertise in sustainable mobility solutions, including an existing compressed natural gas network.

With more than 11,000 employees, ADNOC Distribution is also the leading marketer and distributor of fuels to commercial, industrial, government, and strategic aviation customers in the UAE. With the ADNOC Rewards loyalty program counting 1.4 million members and nearly 100 partners, as well as offerings of specialty-grade coffee and premium fresh-baked goods across its service station network, ADNOC Distribution is establishing itself as one of the country’s leading retail brands. It has also partnered with the UAE government to operate authorized vehicle inspection centers, while car care services such as lube changes, tire changes, and car washes at many of our locations are also highly popular. Every dirham spent on fuel and non-fuel purchases at an ADNOC service station accrues Rewards points, which can be spent with partners or for savings on future purchases across the network’s stations.

The company’s VOYAGER lubricant is exported through a growing distribution network to 22 countries across Asia, North Africa, the CIS, and Middle East regions. Since 2017, ADNOC Distribution has been listed on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange.

David Gandy Wellwear

David Gandy Wellwear is a new clothing category combining wardrobe and well-being. In a world where we are increasingly educated in self-care, Wellwear is bringing the clothing industry up to speed. A collection of pieces designed to support living well in the world sets the brand apart; this isn’t activewear, sportswear, loungewear, nightwear, casualwear or leisurewear – it is Wellwear.

David Gandy Wellwear takes a multi-sensory approach to design, exploring the scientific benefits of soft, comfortable clothing and the belief that every piece should be both physically and emotionally durable. 

With studies showing that simply touching smooth fabrics can enhance psychological well-being and reduce negative emotions, Wellwear’s use of tactile fabrics is key. What’s more, the best and most sustainable natural fibres are treated with technical properties developed to enhance the wearer’s physical well-being. 

Wellwear is minimalist as in to-the-point – it is fashion, function and feeling without compromise, good for the wearer and kind to the planet. 

David Gandy Wellwear was founded by British supermodel David Gandy who is one of the most recognisable faces in fashion. After winning a televised modelling competition at the age of 21 he went on to transform male industry perception and standards with his muscular build, becoming the world’s first and most successful male supermodel. He has worked with some of the biggest brands and the best names in the industry, known for his iconic campaigns that have become global sensations. 

In 2021 Gandy celebrated 20 years in fashion and marked two decades of experience by launching David Gandy Wellwear which combines two of his great passions; style and well-being. Throughout his career Gandy has actively campaigned for mental and physical health long before they captured the zeitgeist of recent years. It was his belief that “clothing shouldn’t just make you look good, it should make you feel good too”, which led to Wellwear; a world first concept bringing well-being and wardrobe together. Outside of fashion David Gandy is known for his love of classic cars and philanthropic work.

Tomini Classics

Since its inception as a private collection in 2011, Tomini Classics has since been the premier classic car dealership in the Middle East. Pioneering the introduction of many specialty and high-end vehicles never seen before in Arabian shores, and helping nourish the growing collectible car culture in UAE and beyond, Tomini Classics remains an institution of the automobile in the city of Dubai.

Founded by Tomini Group Chairman Imtiaz Shaikh and administered by classic car veteran Miguel Llorente, Tomini Classics specializes in two-door, post-war European sports cars, as well as the region’s first official automobilia store, featuring vintage timepieces, vintage catalogs, genuine Formula One components, and other rare and interesting automotive oddities.

While just under a hundred vehicles form part of the Tomini Classics collection, only a handful are thoroughly prepared and retailed for sale to customers from six out of the seven continents.  The rest remain part of the Chairman’s personal collection, or stored for careful preparation at the company’s workshop, managed by Llorente himself. Thanks to the company’s small size, all transactions are considered and managed on a one-to-one basis, often on appointment, aiming to provide a human touch to each interaction with each visitor and client —present, past, and future.

A hand-picked team of 20 people are part of the Tomini Classics family, with each professional —from mechanics to detailers— trained and mentored in the specifics of handling these valuable automotive heirlooms, be it a complex Ferrari restoration, or the preparation of a client’s vehicle for long or short term storage. With a clientele that expects nothing but the very best, Tomini Classics not only aims to vanquish the challenges of pioneering a quirky, unusual business —classic cars!— in the Middle East, but also to rise and maintain strict standards, and ensure that the automotive jewels of today and yesterday continue to drive the roads of the world, including this exciting edition of the Mille Miglia!
