    Yes we have a watch section, but i figured this thread wasnt just relevant to watch enthusiasts, it also deals with a bit if history regarding the marque. The text and picture are captured from another forum.


    The first watch showing here is a very rare solid 18K gold automatic Cartier made in the mid 1980s in a very tiny edition of 140 pieces. This special watch was commissioned by Enzo and individually numbered. These were given to people like Clay Regazzoni and Rene Arnoux. You will not find a rarer gold Ferrari watch! Remember that all Perregaux were made after Enzo passed on.

    The second watch is a rare LeMania from Switzerland. LeMania was one of the very first companies to make authorized Ferrari watches in the mid 1950s.

    the third is an original watch worn and then given by Fangio to his #1 mechanic. This 1950s Vetta manual watch is silver with a silver face, two subdials, and was worn by Fangio, and then later gifted to his friend and mechanic. It's inscribed at the back - Para mi amigo, companero y mecanico "Jungo" Justo Perez este presente de todo corazon 10/8/58 Juan Manuel Fangio. The front is marked "Cuervo Y Sobrinos, Habana", which was a famous store in Cuba specializing in high end watches. This was the year Fangio drove the Maserati 250F, having also raced for Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes and Lancia. This is an incredible piece of automotive history - perfect for the car or watch enthusiast.
