In 1945, Jean Jacque Cartier moved to England so as to run Cartier UK, OR 'Cartier London' as it was known. Many exotic designs were born under his reign including the famous 'Crash' watch and this simple yet yet classic over-sized piece. 38mm may not seem imposing by today's standards but back in 1953, the year we know this piece to be born due to the manufacture letter of 'S' hallmarked in the case back, this was quite a size. In fact, due to it's slightness it appears much larger upon the wrist. Driven, of course, by a Jaeger movement it's provenance is undeniable from it's double set numbers that appear both inside the case back and underneath it's lugs to it's J.C stamp boasting the great man of London's initials. A truly rare opportunity to own such an incredible piece.
