passion and performance". After spending a few months listening to me practising "Showpar" and "mee-lay meel- yah" my lovely wife could take no more and bought me this watch on Valentines Day!

It is a lovely watch, powered by the Valgranges movement, which by the way is the noisiest loudest movement I have ever encountered but hearing it grunt and groan makes the watch seem alive on my wrist. Now I was fully equipped to trace the route of the Mille Miglia.Unfortunately a few unforseen events conspired to prevent us making the roadtrip but each time I wear the watch it reminds me of the trip which I hope to do in 2012 . The full name of this watch is the Chopard 1000 Miglia GT XL Power Control. The lovely

stainless steel bezel is truly fine, as is the striking rubber of the bracelet and the design replicates the tread of an old Dunlop tyre. The magnificent Sapphire, scratch resistant crystal, combined with the fine Stainless Steel case material makes this a highly sought after Swiss watch. Plus the Black strap color of the Chopard 1000 Miglia GT XL Power Control and the distinctive white dial, make it a really popular timepiece throughout the world. Other practical features of this designer wristwatch include the skeleton case back, the 44 mm (1.73 in) case diameter, the screwed down crown, and the water resistance of 100 metres (330 feet). The striking material of this XL Mens watch makes for a comfortable, yet elegant, wear. Also note the automatic with power reserve (self

winding) movement, the Deployment Buckle clasp, and the 8 in (20.3 cm) bracelet length.

This is an indisputable class leader in the world of automobile watches and should be on the wish list of any serious watch loving car enthusiast. Quite simply every time I put the watch on it is a joy to wear!

Pros: style, pedigree and quality.

Cons: Itʼs not cheap. Verdict: 5 stars.
