  • Catalogue Essay

    Cartier celebrated its heritage in 1998 with the launch of the Collection Privée Cartier Paris, a series of iconic designs with mechanical movements from the past century. From the Crash, Obus, Chinoise, Asymétrique, and of course, the Tank Cintrée, the collection were produced in only limited numbers until 2008. Released as part of the coveted collection with 100 pieces only, the present Tank Cintrée Dual Time in white gold was created for the Asian market in 2004. Coupled with two mechanical movements operated by two faceted crowns fitted into a single case, two dials are stacked vertically. The top dial features the classis Cartier Roman numeral execution at 12, 3, 6, and 9, and the second time-zone dial at the bottom is injected with a twist of playfulness with the use of Chinese numerals.

    Incredibly handsome and sophisticated with subtlety that carries all the CPCP characteristics such as the rosette guilloche finishing on the dial that radiates out to the whole dial, the present example is also numbered 66 from the limited edition series. Stunning and preserved in its “new-old-stock” condition and retains even its original caseback stickers, this white gold Tank Cintrée Dual Time is numbered 66 as part of the CPCP collection made in a limited edition of 100 pieces.

    Whether it is the perfect his and her’s pair that goes with Lot 821 in this auction, or the discerned collector that knows it’s true rarity to find the timepiece in such stunning condition, gems like such should not be disregarded and deserves to be cherished with equal, if not more care by its next owner.

  • 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.
