Known as one of the foremost purveyors of high-end jewelry, Cartier has long held a reputation for superb watches, mostly with excellent mechanical pedigree, but its principal strong suit has been high fashion and style. Among its innovative styles, first released by Cartier of London in the late 1960s, the unusual shape of the Crash claims inspiration from a car accident involving a Vice President from the Cartier London office. This lot has been manufactured in 18k yellow gold with cabochon set winding crown, exaggerated silvered dial with Roman numerals and signed Cartier Paris, secret signature at 7, blued steel hands, asymmetric case and completed by the Cartier deployant clasp. Further preciousness of this incredible piece is represented by its accessories: it is still present and very well preserved its original box and warranty that confirms the limitd production numbered 186 of 400 to accompany this Crash.
