1980s Ferrari Cartier watch.
This automatic solid 18K gold watch is the among the last ones commissioned by Il Commendatore. Only 50 were made and none were sold commercially, they were gifted to special clients and friends of Enzo Ferrari, like Gianni Agnelli. We have one very clean example available with box and papers. You cannot buy these anywhere; and this is one of only two we have ever seen!
The watch is a chrono with date, and a moonphase in one of the subdials. It is branded ‘Ferrari Formula’ by Cartier and is in ‘as new’ condition, complete with box and guarantee card. The 40mm chronograph with date function utilizes the Swiss made Valjoux 7750 automatic movement. The case is in solid 18kt gold, and is water resistant.
It is expensive but much rarer and more historically significant than a modern day Girard-Perregaux, Panerai or Hublot.
This rare watch can be seen in the 1990 issue of Ferrari World, volume 8. It is the perfect timepiece to wear in your 1980s-era Ferrari 288 GTO or F40!
In 1988 Enzo gave a very similar watch to the Pope.
