The Chopard Mille Miglia GT XL Power Control is without doubt one of my all time favourite watches but this limited edition version for sale exclusively through the Hour Glass boutiques in Singapore is to my mind an absolute stunner.
The case is in steel with a very hard black DLC coating (glossy). It has a power reserve indicator for the mechanical automatic movement that is done like a fuel gauge, and a reverse mounted magnifier lens for the date window. The hands are ultra easy to see, and reading most every Mille Miglia watch is a treat in terms of aesthetics and legibility. The watch is matched to Chopard's standard Dunlop tire tread rubber strap, and is limited to just 150 pieces.
Overall, the Mille Miglia timepieces are an excellent embodiment of auto-racing sport and culture, or more simply put they are all round cool watches.
