Sometimes a watch comes along that is just fun and that’s what the Petrol Head from Chotovelli is all about. An auto themed watch that is definitely geared towards car enthusiasts. From first glance you will notice is the large case size which comes in at 50.2mm by 17.1mm thick. It definitely will get noticed on the wrist. The large 8mm signed crown is quite impressive and operates as a standard push/pull style. The brushed stainless steel case features an engraved CHOTOVELLI on the non crown side.
Thankfully the lugs are quite short so the watch doesn’t wear larger than its dimensions. I have 7 1/2″ wrists and the wears comfortably. The drilled lugs have decorative screw heads and standard spring bars that hold the straps on .
The Petrol Head is a really fun watch to wear. It’s a large but comfortable watch that has great wrist presence. It’s the perfect watch for auto/race enthusiasts. My older brother is a car fanatic and he absolutely loved this watch when he saw it during my review process. Even if you aren’t a car enthusiast the Petrol Head is just a watch is a nice break from the seriousness that some watches have or try to have. The dial is hands down my favorite part of this watch. There are so many little fun details that holds true to the overall theme of the watch. I like how committed Chotovelli was to holding the consistency throughout this watch.
