The lot offered here is not the classic Cartier to which everybody is used to because this model is part of a special production of watches Omega realized by Cartier around the ’30s. Launched in 1932 - patent no.146.310, granted 10th March 1930 - the Marine was the first watch to be tested at a depth exceeding 70 meters. The case is made in three parts with an inclined bezel at sides and with raised bar on top and bottom, with a male and female section fitting together and held in place by a large tensioned clip. Another main and very rare peculiarity of this watch is its movement, signed Omega, an unexpected and unusual but highly effective combination. The dial, with a very attractive patina capable of transforming the initial white color into an matte silver, is the only element that presents the Cartier signature. This watch is the perfect example that certainties do not exist and deserves to become part of a special collection.
