Beautiful vintage 1960's Yema Rallygraph race drivers chronograph in a solid stainless steel 39mm diameter case with original factory printed racing stripe dial and Speedmaster style dot over 90 tachymetre bezel, freshly serviced and ready to wear! This model 9312 gained it's fame from being worn by the legendary F1 driver Mario Andretti in the late 1960's and early 1970's during many of his races. It is of superb quality throughout powered by the famous Valjoux manual wind caliber 7730 chronograph movement with rare 45-minute counter at 3:00. The original factory printed panda style dial has awesome style with a nice lightly aged vintage look. I just love that deeply stamped Yema logo medallion on the case back!
