Available for auction is a truly exceptional and genuinely preserved piece of automotive history: an original Ferrari dealer showroom clock that hails from the renowned Italian sign maker Neon Modena. Crafted exclusively for Ferrari, this clock bears witness to a golden era of automotive excellence. Previously showcased at one of the United Kingdom's oldest Ferrari franchises, it exudes an aura of authenticity and heritage that's hard to replicate.
The clock's journey through time is awe-inspiring. Believed to have graced the dealership's from the early 1990s up until the turn of the millennium, it held a special place within the showroom. According to the seller, it was acquired directly from the family of a former director of the Ferrari board after his passing.
Functionality meets elegance with this battery-operated Quartz clock. Its precision timekeeping remains as remarkable as the day it was created. The original clock hands, which have witnessed the passage of time, still grace its face, connecting the present with the past.
While the clock has undergone some refurbishments, including the replacement of the neon tubes and rear backing due to prior damage, its essence remains unaltered. The contemporary fluorescent lighting that adorns it adds a touch of modernity while staying true to its roots. The solid aluminum casing, which embraces the clock, stands as a testament to its enduring quality. Displaying only minor age-related marks and stains, it bears no dents or significant blemishes, preserving its integrity.
The clock's screen, unmarred by any damage, captivates with its daytime charm, only to transform into a mesmerizing spectacle when illuminated. Measuring just under 31.5" in height, nearly 24" in length, and just under 4" in depth, its proportions are the epitome of balanced design.
Undeniably significant and possibly one of the rarest Ferrari Dealership signs in existence, this piece radiates an undeniable aura of exclusivity. This auction offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of automotive history that transcends time and resonates with the heart and soul of Ferrari's storied past. The buyer is responsible for shipping, handling, and fees.
