Meet Cartier Crash Watch

Jan 14, 2013
Cartier is pleased to present its new Crash watch.

The first Cartier Crash watch was born in 1967 at the very heart of “Swinging London”, having become synonymous to the carefree spirit of an era of freedom.

The story of the watch says that a client returned a Cartier timepiece that had been crashed in an accident and wanted to have it repaired. Jean-Jacques Cartier, then the head of Cartier London, got so impressed by the shape of the case that he decided to reproduce it.

The Crash watch stands out by its asymmetrical dial. Over time the timepiece has became a rare collector’s item produced in very limited editions.

Now, Cartier presents its new Crash watch in a limited series of four new models. For the first time, it is coupled with a delicate bracelet, with the links looking like gentle drops in white or pink gold. The edition also comprises an even more precious version of the watch presented on the entirely diamond-set bracelet.

The case of the Cartier watch (38.45 mm x 25.5 mm) is sculptured from 18K pink or white gold set with brilliant-cut diamonds. The time is elegantly indicated by sword-shaped hands in blued steel.

Paying tribute to the year the first Crash watch was created, the ultra-selective Cartier timepiece is introduced in 267 numbered pieces for the versions with gold bracelets and 67 numbered pieces for the versions with diamond-set bracelets.

The rare Cartier watch is only available via selected Cartier shops.
