    Hello Everyone,

    Available for sale is a very special Girard Perregaux Chronograph for Ferrari that was given as a gift by Formula 1 Champion Michael Schumacher to his mentor who he called his "Second Father". Comes with a special personal note by Michael Schumacher which he signed and papers, condition is 90%. Here is an interesting article which details the relationship:

    This isn't a piece he signed for the fans, rather a very personal item which represents an integral part of Michael Schumacher's life and history. Hence a rare opportunity.

    That is an incredible piece Salman. My immediate reaction would be why Mr. Dilk would ever have parted with this special gift ....

    It would make a wonderful addition to any serious Schumi fan's collection

    Thank You Dave, I had the exact same question, and the answer unfortunately was the tax man and the issue of unpaid taxes and the subsequent auction of his estate.

    There is much to contemplate, in this item.

    Not all of it happy, with the previous owner's passing, and Micheal's current condition.

    As you are a willing seller, topping up the thread, PM me the range you are expecting.

    I think everyone is just awestruck about the history.

    As my own mother recently said to me, "Here, take this." and handed me all of my own father's life momentoes, it generates strong feelings, to think about. Of course, there was a watch like this among them, marking thirty years of his life, with his employer.

    Happy Holidays, anyway!!

    Thank you for sharing your own personal experience, it was quite moving and my condolences for your loss.

    My understanding is that the previous owner is very much alive and kicking.

    As for my range as I wrote in my original post: "please contact me if interested with your best offer, offers north of USD 10k will be seriously considered."

    I wish you Bright Skies and Happiness and Joy going forward.
