Mario Andretti and his Yema Chronograph

Post by koimaster » August 12th 2019, 8:47am

Legendary racecar champion Mario Andretti sat down with iW special contributor Charles Moyer earlier this year to talk about racing and his watch. Most specifically, he discussed the Yema chronograph that launched his watch collecting enthusiasm.


How did you develop your passion for fine watches?
Mario Andretti: Ever since I was a little boy I have always loved cars and watches. Both cars and watches are incredibly fascinating machines. I find that almost all true car aficionados are also passionate about watches because they are also intricate mechanical devices on a much smaller scale.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Interesting watch. I like the MA version better than the others.

The dial reminds me of this micro that I do not think is around anymore
