ANDRETTI CHRONOGRAPH 1969 MK1 by YEMA
The REAL one, First Generation (MK1) circa 1969 — the year Andretti WON 🏆 the Indy 500 with a YEMA (Wesley) Rallye chronograph 🏁 (NOT RE-issue modern model)
MK1 dial variant with CURSIVE: Y above the YEMA brand
very rare Valjoux 7733 and 30 minutes right subdial (not 45, and not later VJ77xx)
NOTE: there is another MK1 with near serial of 38049 currently on eBay, and is the only other lower serial MK1 we have been able to document (ever), though that one is priced at AUD 12.000, and has an non-original crown!
COMPLETELY Original and Correct example:
•MK1 untouched dial
•BIG orig crown
•ALL orig hands
•Tachy ORIGINAL bezel (INCLUDED)‼️
Minty 39MM case with thick lugs, sharp and crisp engravings
Purchased 2010 in Paris, considerably predating the recent craze
An honest ORIGINAL un-restored example with factory original Tachymeter bezel (INCLUDED), and NOS Original Yema decreasing numbers stationary bezel currently mounted — to match the stunning esthetic (to my taste)
RUNS as it looks 💯 but as service history is unknown, and the watch has remained unworn in so long a service lubrication is recommended.
DM with interest on this uber-raritat MK1 cult classic‼️ Or for additional photos and information.
