1951 Ferrari Marvin Carrera Panamericana watch.
This special timepiece was given to the driver of that year’s Carrera Panamericana (Ferrari 212 Inter Vignale). This watch is a 36mm manual winding with the Carrera Panamericana logo, a gold face and two subdials. It is in very good condition for its age. The replacement strap is a brown crocodile and is near new. The rear of the case has been inscribed – La Carrera Panamerica / Rally Mexico in the stylized logo as well as ‘1951’, ’25-50′ and ‘FERRARI’. It is also stamped ‘Fond Acier Inoxydable’ and ‘65775’.
This timepiece was most probably given to Alberto Ascari who drove Ferrari 212 s/n 0161EL alongside Villoresi to a 2nd place finish that year. (NMP)
