A Diamond and White Gold 'Crash' Wristwatch, by Cartier

A Diamond and White Gold 'Crash' Wristwatch, by Cartier

The shaped dial with black roman chapters and a pave diamond frame, cabochon sapphire winder and white leather bracelet, signed Cartier, circa 2005

The idea of this curiously mishappen watch was apparently inspired in 1967 by a Cartier client who wished to celebrate his good fortune in surviving a particularly unpleasant accident. Inspired by surrealism, its shape demanded perfection in the art of the watchmaker. Originally laughed in a limited edition of just twelve pieces, this model continues to be produced today despite its unorthodox shape.
