Description

Extremely Rare, 1930s CARTIER PARIS 18kt Yellow Gold Ultra - Thin Cartier , “Montre Couteau” Minute Repeating Hunting Case Pocket Watch with sub seconds and Roman Numeral Dial.

Around 1930s, the montre couteau rivaled all other pocket watch case designs as it was the slimmest pocket watch case design that Cartier ever produced. The entire watch measures an ultra thin 4mm and houses an even smaller 2mm minute repeating signed Cartier Paris movement.
This extremely rare “Couteau” polished shape case was most probably the slimmest minute repeating pocket watch of its time. The pocket watch is fully signed, fully hallmarked and numbered and in perfect working condition.

Further Adding more interest to its construction, the case is of extremely unusual construction as the movement is housed in an adapter ring whose top portion forms the bezel.

The dial is fully signed for Cartier Paris along the 4-7 numerals on an original champagne dial with radial Roman numerals, and outer minute track. It is also important to note the sub seconds complication located at the six.

Respectively, this very rare trophy minute repeating pocket watch is fully signed with a signed Cartier Paris movement and original blued steel hands, sheet with patina and is fully functional and has been recently serviced…

Additionally important, the case measures to approximately 46mm and the 18kt yellow gold case has French hallmarks at the base of the bow and case interiors and is serial numbered in two locations : Inside case front cuvette “30” and case back correctly displays cartier's 5 digit serial number

The movement has been cleaned and is fully functional 18’’’, rhodium-plated, 29 jewels, straight-line lever escapement, cut bimetallic compensation balance with 8 adjustments, repeating on gongs with two polished steel hammers, activated by a slide on the band.
