Run ThE good RAcE

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

Mille Miglia time­pieces were first cre­ated in 1988 as a tro­phy for the win­ners of the epony­mous rally in Italy, which takes rac­ers over a 1,600km route from Brescia to Rome. Ad­mit­tedly, there have been nu­mer­ous rein­ven­tions of the watch; so, why is this one con­sid­ered spe­cial? Be­cause it’s the largest ever. The 2016 XL Race Edi­tion looks and feels solid on the wrist, per­haps partly due to the slightly con­caved case­back and partly due to the thick brown calf­skin strap. A sense of vin­tage el­e­gance sur­rounds the tachymeterin­spired chrono­graph dial. It’s quite busy, surely, but the lit­tle red-ar­row logo sport­ing “1000 Miglia” stands as a stamp of ap­proval of how suit­able this one is for any car junkie out there.
