An interesting Cartier PW

Apr 21, 2019,07:15 AM
 

I saw this in Paris recently. It displays three timezones. the sub registers are set by pushing the tiny pusher at 11 with a finger nail. The dial had some texture and patina but, in a nice way. ... I was seriously tempted to get it. The idea of a PW is slowly growing in my mind.










here you see it together with my Chronometre a Resonance. I thought they would make an interesting picture together.

often amazing history, amazing value for money, amazing finishing. Just have to find the right one. I’m looking for very high end chronometres even combined with tourbillons. All somehow accessible.... You’re example has also a lot of charm. Just thinking... 

Im with you, Dirk. I have seen some spectacular pieces from Vacheron and Patek

With pocket watches no external restraint is effective ... chosing a theme in advance is very helpful. I have manual, automatic, quartz, electronic, white gold, yellow gold, steel, plastic, ultra-thin, American, Swiss, Japanese ... Large, medium, small, p...  

Amazing lineup! I didn’t know,

But somehow I am not completely surprised, Mike ;-) You are a collector par excellence! I know you have a hundred-and-something wrist watches but how many PW? I will take your advice to heart about finding a theme. That’s the way to enter this time. Thank... 

About 20 I think

They tend to get left with my cuff links, or in a cigar box, or partially-assembled in a service tray... I don't even know for sure how many are here: Mike ...  

20 is quite a substantial collection...

But I am relieved to hear that you still see the potential for expanding it ...LOL Christian

Yes, agree George - I was seriously tempted by it, but felt I didnt know enough about PWs.

An interesting detail - it was not plexi but crystal glass. The Journe I love. A highly original piece and such a harmonious watch to wear both because af the symmetry of the dial and the nice proportions of the case.
