Chopard Mille Miglia GT Power Reserve


  
Chopard Mille Miglia GT Power Reserve Watch Review

  Chopard’s race inspired Mille Miglia Gran Turismo (GT) XL Power Reserve 
(ref.168457-3001) is a seriously sporty watch. There is no shortage of unique race details through out the watch’s design. The power reserve indicator at the 6 o’clock position symbolizes a race cars fuel tank indicator, with an “F” and an “E” to let you know when you running low on power. The Chopard GT has a fixed internal bezel encompassing the all black dial, with nicely done date magnifier at the 3 o’clock position. The large “12” gives a great bold “pop” to the dial, also helping to visual balance the large power reserve indicator. Race inspired, this Chopard is supported by a black Dunlop tread designed strap. Adding a subtle unique touch to the watch, equipped with a deployant (not deploymnet) buckle. 
  There is an exhibition case back, displaying the ETA based Caliber A07.161 automatic movement, with a guilloche rotor. The Gran Turismo XL is C.O.S.C. and is sporting a 46 hour power reserve. Great watch, that has been well thought out.

Pros - Unique overall design, nice finish, exhibition case back.

Consideration - Water resistance.
