For a restricted number of collectors, Audemars Piguet produced watches with the dial embellished with the image of a Ferrari that, although unidentified and portrayed without the shield, is attributable to the 315S piloted by Von Trips during the 1957 Mille Miglia. The race was the last edition of the Mille Miglia until its rebirth, twenty years later, as a regularity rally for vintage cars.
