This pocket watch also comes with its original papers and box, which also show the same pride and skill in their aesthetics and design as the watch itself. The box is cushioned with red velvet to protect this mint condition piece. A ring of gold medals won by the watch masters at Patek Philippe, framing the piece as it sits on its throne. With this particular brand new interpretation from the acclaimed Container collection, the actual Maison Parisienne seems to have taken a step ahead within creativeness, granting true dandies all over the world the chance in order to revamp their own wrists with a genuinely timeless piece.

Cartier made most of their large range of iconic watches between 1906 and 1967. In this period, they created such famous models like the various Tank, Santos, Tortue and Tonneau models. In this time period, Cartier did not make their own movements. Therefore ’La Maison’ worked closely together with mainly Jaeger-LeCoultre, which formed the European Watch & Clock Co. for this purpose, to obtain their calibers. Prime examples of excellent remakes of the original models are the Santos Dumont 1913, LC Tank and the Tortue Mono Poussoir (first model in yellow gold).

A couple of models in Collection Privée, Cartier Paris, were limited to only 100 pieces and the models that were produced in an unlimited quantity were made in very small numbers, 200 to a few hundred, depending on the model. If one considers that Cartier has over 300 Boutiques worldwide, then it’s hard to believe that these editions were that small. Readers, do you wear a watch — and if so, what kind is it? How much did you spend on it? Do you notice which watches men and women at your office are wearing (or if they’re wearing one)?

Another popular style in women’s watches that has continued through the decades is the bejeweled timepiece. Women love watches decorated with diamonds and precious gemstones. One great example is an Art Deco Platinum, Diamond and Gem-Set Smoking Watch by Chopard, featured in our upcoming June 14th, 2011 Fine Jewelry auction , and estimated at $15,000-20,000. This watch was designed in 1920 and depicts two chic women smoking. While smoking may now be considered a fashion “no,” wearing a watch like this is definitely a fashion “yes.” Bid now Add to watch list RARE TIFFANY CO ART DECO DIAMOND RUBY DOUBLE CLIP DUETTE BROOCH PIN PLATINUM $9,999.00
