I was so excited when I managed to buy this watch at auction. These watches are becoming ultra rare and collectable. I’ve seen the value of these rocket in recent years. This model is known as the ‘Andretti’ after Mario Andretti was known to have worn this watch during his racing career.
The case is solid stainless steel with a uni-directional rotating bezel with crown and 2 pushers. The cool looking dial is black with red racing stripes, side by side sub dials with date aperture at 6. The dial is signed YEMA RALLYE with the crossed chequered flags logo beneath.
The watch is fitted with a quality leather Hirsch strap with red stitching. The movement is the 17 jewelled Valjoux 7734 chronograph movement. This watch comes in a luxury presentation box and comes with our 2 year guarantee.
I have included an image (photo credit: OnTheDash.com) of Mario Andretti with his Yema on his wrist during the 1969 Indy 500, his sole win of the legendary race. This watch is a must for race and watch fans alike and represents an amazing investment opportunity.
