It's 1969 and an up-and-coming race car driver enters the Indy 500. It's his fifth attempt to win the infamous endurance race, and this time he does it. The driver, Mario Andretti, made the history books that day, and on his wrist? The Yema Rallye. A unique two-register chronograph with a design that just screams motorsports, it’s iconic of the period, and thanks to Mr. Andretti’s incredible win, an important part of a great story. To mark the 50th anniversary of this triumph, Yema has recreated the watch Mr. Andretti wore that day with exacting detail in a limited edition of 1,969 pieces. 

Measuring 39 x 48mm, the Yema Rallye Andretti stays true to the original’s design and dimensions, though features a domed sapphire crystal for added durability. What sets the design apart from other chronographs of the era, as well as today, is the unique dial layout. A bowing white form creates a frame for twin distorted square sub-dials. On the left side are two red stripes, while twin checkered flags sit above the date window. It’s a design that could only come from the ‘60s.

In 1969 Mario Andretti’s watch featured a hand-wound Valjoux 7730 movement. For the 50th anniversary edition, Yema has utilized the Valjoux 7753 automatic chronograph in its place. Though a modern movement, the 7753 is a continuation of the family of movements from the original, giving it a nice tie to the past. The 7753 features 27-jewels, hand-winding, stop-watch-function, 44-hour power reserve, a frequency of 28,800 bph and hacking seconds (the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out).
