  • Catalogue Essay

    Having resided in a private collection for many years, this beautiful Cartier openface watch is fitted with a movement by Meylan. During the early 20th century, Cartier outsourced some of its movements, particularly those that required an additional layer of expertise to produce. This minute repeating mechanism chimes with great tone and clarity. The two-tone dial features Breguet numerals, adding another layer of prestige to this timepiece.
