The famous Mario Andretti wore this watch regularly from when he purchased it in 1960 and actually wore it daily during the entire month of May 1969 in preperation for the Indianapolis 500, he wore it for practice, qualitying and the race itself. This marks the 50th anniversary of that incredible time, so I am excited to bring a beautiful 1969 YEMA Rallye, the same reference he wore during that race! This lovely watch was sold by Watches of Knightsbridge in their Novemeber 2018 sale, the original catologue and purchase invoice are provided with the watch!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and comes with no official box or paperwork. This watch was sold by Watches of Knightsbridge in their November 2018 sale, it comes with the original catologue for that sale as well as the purchase reciept. The watch has unknown service history but is running well. The watch is showing signs of age and the bezel has faded and has some marks as you can see from the photos.
This is a great chance to buy a beautiful chronograph with some serious history for a really great price! In the auction it had an estimate above our asking price here, so don't miss out on this! You will regret it!
