Since 1898, Cartier’s skill and craftsmanship in the creation of timepieces have proved to be even important over pocket timepieces and wristwatches. Always ahead of its time and eager to experiment with innovative materials, Cartier gave birth to some very original watches like the present lot with an unusual barrel-shape, waterproof case signed Paris in yellow gold and articulated hooded ribbed lugs. The silver dial has applied yellow-gold dot and baton hour indexes with outer five minutes/seconds division, yellow hands with luminous material and an aperture for the date at 3 o'clock. Accompained by its original certificate reporting all information of the watch stamped by the maison Cartier, an archive's picture is also published in “Le Temps de Cartier” by Jader Barracca, Giampiero Negretti and Franco Nencini at page 254.
