Powered by a Seiko VK64 meca-quartz movement, the new Rallye Mario Andretti Meca-Quartz Special Edition proposes a contemporary design and pays tribute to Mario's legendary career. Featuring a 39mm stainless steel case, double domed mineral crystal, date window, tachymeter bezel, 60-min chronograph and 24 hour indicator, this collector's chronograph has been designed for motorsports and speed.
This Special Edition is powered by a Seiko VK64 meca-quartz movement, a hybrid of a quartz and mechanical movement. The end result is a chronograph that functions exactly as a mechanical would, including snapping back to zero upon the reset and sweeping smoothly rather than ticking, but without the immense hassle of winding and dealing with power reserve.
The carbon fiber dial surface, the oval sub-registers and the chronograph sweep second hands with red tip inspire from race car dashboards
The dial is signed Mario Andretti with the crossed checkered flags logo above and the distinct red racing stripes in memory of the Grand Prix races
Designed for motor sports and speed, the aluminium tachymeter bezel measures slow and fast speeds over a fixed distance
The caseback features Yema’s coat of arms surrounded by an elegant engraving adorned with Mario Andretti's signature
Les aiguilles et les index sont revêtus de Super-LumiNova. La Superman héritage Blue offre donc une parfaite lisibilité dans l'obscurité.
The hands and index are treated with a luminous coat offering a perfect readability in the dark

Mario Andretti is a racing icon, considered by many to be the greatest race car driver in the history of the sport. He was born in Italy and didn't emigrate to the United States until age fifteen. At 19, he began racing stock cars in Pennsylvania and that was the start of an illustrious career that saw the versatile driver compete and win in every discipline he entered – midgets, sprint cars, dirt track cars, stock cars, IndyCars, Formula One, Formula 5000 and sports cars.
His achievements became legendary: The world watched as he won the Daytona 500, the Indianapolis 500 and ultimately the Formula One World Championship, an unprecedented trifecta. No other race car driver has ever won all three titles. Mario took the checkered flag 111 times during his career – a career that stretched five decades and across six continents.
Today he is a successful businessman off the track, serving as spokesman, associate and friend to top executives around the world.
Mario has received hundreds of awards and recognitions. Among the most prestigious, he was named Driver of the Century, he was knighted by his native Italy, and the Library of Congress in Washington DC added him to its Living Legends list. And on the lighter side, but undoubtedly affirmation of his charisma and popularity, he was in the first Pixar Cars movie voicing himself and GQ Magazine named him one of "The 25 Coolest Athletes of All Time”.

Ideal size, very light and great overal quality of carbon inlay.. Peter
I bought it with the leather strap.It looks stunning, the finish is great. The watch is totally as advertised. I love how they kept the more classic size as well. So it also works great with a more stylish outfit.
The Yema Mario Andretti is a wonderfully sized Chrono harking back to the glory days of '60s Formula 1 and Indy car racing, but with the modern application of a carbon fibre dial and meca quartz movement. The dial has a fantastic depth to it and the movement providing convenient "plug and play" wear ability with a smooth sweeping seconds hand. The Milanese band is particularly comfortable and optional brown racing strap wonderfully smooth and flexible. Yema service dept is also very good to deal with and delivery exceptional in these disrupted times.
There are no flaws. I
Just love it. I changed out the strap to a brown leather and or a black leather rallye strap. My favorite watch.
