In honour of the fortieth anniversary of the car manufacturer, Enzo Ferrari did not only create the F40, the Italian sport car par excellence. To celebrate the important milestone, Ferrari commissioned to Cartier a series of watches for his close circle of collaborators and friends: 140 chronographs powered by the precise and reliable Valjoux 7750 movement, upon which the limited edition serial number was engraved.
