Chopard might not be the first brand to come to mind, when one thinks about racing watches, but they’ve designed some of the nicest one’s. Their collections devoted to automobiles: Mille Miglia, Classic Racing, or Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, have all been quite successful and very detail oriented.

The latest Mille Miglia, dubbed the: Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Power Control, is the first to feature an in-house made movement by Chopard. The brand became an official sponsor of the Mille Miglia back in 1988. They choose to celebrate this open-road race held in Italy for its homage to another era of racing, for this competition was reborn as a race for classic and vintage cars, since 1977.

The case of the Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Power Control is 43mm wide, with short lugs and a simple but appropriate design. Its dial features a rethought retro-design with a sports vibe. Boosting an index dial, except for the Arabic 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions. Bright hands and accents discreetly highlight the predominately black color of the dial. There is a day-date at the 3 o’clock position. And the dial also features the fuel gauge-style power reserve indicator at the 9 o’clock position, maintaining the racing-car motif.
