  • Artist Biography



    With the Constitution of 1848 came a new standard for luxury in France. Founded one year prior by Louis-Francois Cartier, the house of Cartier was one of the first to use platinum in jewelry making. This incredibly expensive material became the stepping-stone for Cartier to experiment in form, mechanisms and attitude. It helped men move from pocket watches to wristwatches, effectively making the watch much more functional and prominent in a man's overall wardrobe.

    Cartier did not only touch on functionality. Inspired by a commissioned painting by George Barbier featuring a black panther at the feet of an elegantly bejeweled woman, Cartier began incorporating wild animals in his designs—most notably, Cartier Panthère rings, bangle bracelets and watches. Yet it wasn't until the late 1960s that the house of Cartier debuted their iconic yellow and rose gold LOVE collection, which includes the famous bracelet that only a special screwdriver can open.

Ref. 3619
Very rarely do watches of such beauty appear on the secondary market, an iconic reference with an additional element of glamour and sophistication. Launched at SIHH in 2013 the following Crash is one of just 67 pieces to feature a diamond set bracelet and the total watch is crafted with 471 brilliant cut diamonds totalling 4.27 carats. Cased in 18 ct White Gold and featuring a concealed deployment clasp the following Crash is perhaps the ultimate iteration, perfect for the glamour of Monaco's Casino Square or the sophistication of a Milan catwalk. Found in outstanding overall condition the watch is found complete with full accessories.
