Description

Revealed in 1967, the myth says it was inspired by a timepiece that survived a car crash – therefore the name « Crash »
Actually the first impression is the resemblance with « The Persistence of Memory », the melting clocks from Salvador Dali. After a successful launch, this wrist-watch has been reissued in a limited series of only 400 pieces in 1991.
Today, only a piece per month is delivered of  this latest version at the legendary London Cartier Boutique of Bond Street.

The stylish case of this Cartier Crash made of yellow gold reveals a silvery & white dial with black fancy roman numerals around lovely blue central hands indicating the hours & minutes • The inscription « Swiss Made », is visible on the center of the dial and replaces the version where « London » inscription was.  The crown has also an interesting design with a blue cabochon on the top.
It is an unisex model, larger size case with a manual-winding movement hidden under the solid case-back where the inscription of the Cartier Boutique in Bond Street is engraved.  Fitted with a beige leather strap that gives the perfect contrast for the lucky few, indeed only 12 pieces are being delivered a year.
– Viewing possible in our showroom in Geneva, Switzerland.

Founded by Louis-Francois Cartier in 1847, the house of Cartier is the luxury jewellers by reference in France.
Jewellers of the royal family and their prominent entourage, they quickly acquired fame in Europe.
Later Louis Cartier gave a second life to old watchmaking traditions with pieces like the mystery clocks, gem-set watches and other flamboyant pieces.
One of their iconic models called the Santos was made in 1904 for his friend and client the aviator from Brazil, Alberto Santos-Dumont.   Followed by other successful models like the Tonneau in 1906, the Tortue in 1912 and the famous Tank in 1919 to mention few.
The brand stayed in the family until 1964 and is now owned by a Swiss watch group.
