An interesting Cartier PW

 
 By: ChristianDK : April 21st, 2019-07:15
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.



I’m with you on the pocket watch hunt

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 who might have bought a timezone watch back then makes it interesting.

Happy hunting,
Dirk

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

for prices that where in reach.
thank you for chiming in smile

Looking at the size I have no doubt that could become a wrist watch. [nt]

Yup - and it was even slimmer than my Resonance, which isnt very thick.

Beautiful pocket watch.

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, pendant, with date, without date, railroad certified and not, etc. etc. etc. But no minute repeaters and no perpetual calendars. There is still room for expansion of the PW collection.












Cheers,

Cazalea

PS - lots of new photo opportunities, too!

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 you for chiming in!!  smile

About 20 I think

 
 By: cazalea : April 21st, 2019-15:34
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

Love the case and dial too
FPJ is superior too!

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.
