The present lot is a precious one since it has been realized in platinum and it is very important to underline that Cartier commissioned two platinum “Cloche” timepieces made exclusively for the auction “The Magical Art of Cartier” in 1996, but with different dials to make each of them unique. The dial is the classic Cartier style with the inner closed minutes track and back Roman numerals. It is the number 1/1 as can be seen from the engraving on the case back which also presents the date 1996, being the year in which this edition was presented. This Cartier with this asymmetric design is one of the most memorable and fascinating watch models. The present watch is published on the book “White—Cartier—Bianco” by Osvaldo Patrizzi at page 168.
