Cartier has always had the tradition of making limited editions for particular boutiques or countries, typically in small runs of a few dozen or less and around the beginning of the 11th century decided to produce a very particular like this Tank Cintrée dual time zone for the Greater China. The lot offered here is the number 45 as reported by the engraving on the case back and has been realized in 18k pink gold. This gentleman’s wristwatch has two independent mechanical movements, capable of showing on a silvered guilloché dial two different time zones, one with Roman numerals while the other has Chinese ones settable thanks to the two big cabochon at 2 and 4 o’clock. For a similar model please see lot 150.
