This watch was commissioned by the Mercedes Benz Factory following the win in both the World Series and the Mille Miglia of 1955, Orfina was commissioned to produce 80 watches in total for presentation to the team and those closely associated with this historic event late in 1955.
However only a small number (less than ten I believe) were to have the Racing Laurel with the name Mercedes Benz across the complete face as seen above (the majority were to have a small Mercedes Logo at twelve o'clock
None of these watches were offered to the general public and only gifted to the team and those involved with this achievement .
The Racing Laurel as shown on this watch above was reserved for the drivers and the actual crews who supported this outstanding victory.
