Car racing and watches: such a seemingly ever-young combination, tirelessly perpetuated by the countless automotive-inspired watches released year over year. Despite the highly saturated segment, there actually are very few watches that can pull off this racing vibe and omega replica remain wearable for the times when, you know, you are not driving your Porsche 550 Spyder on the twisty roads along the Côte d'Azur. The Chopard Mille Miglia 2016 XL Race Edition promises to be one of these few, offering a mix of subtle Mille Miglia branding and not-so-subtle vintage replique montre racing-inspired design elements. Let's see how it performs - not on the race track, but on the wrist. Sounds like a magnificent time to be had... Yet, somehow, I have always felt that while it is a race based on admirable heritage and a genuine appreciation of vintage race cars, the number of Chopard watches and cartier replica dedicated to it, as well as the emphasis placed on plastering Mille Miglia everywhere on most of said watches, was a bit overkill for many prospective buyers who would otherwise have liked the design, price point, and quality of Chopard's racing-inspired rolex replica timepieces. It has to be a terrific race, no doubt about it, but I always wondered if its fan base was as large and as dedicated to the event as it would need to be to justify previous Mille Miglia watch designs.
