A study in classic Art Deco design, this pocket watch by Cartier is in a class all its own. The open face timepiece is housed in a sleek ultra-flat case crafted from onyx with a platinum case-band. Embedded in the platinum is a row of dazzling rose-cut diamonds, an antique cut stone that preceded the more modern brilliant cut. What really sets this timepiece apart as a masterpiece of Art Deco design, however, is its guilloché dial and gorgeous gold enamel chapter ring. The roman numerals, rendered in a bold and highly modern typeset, are perfectly offset by the delicate and discreet fleurettes that separate each of them. Inside the stylish case, an ultra-thin LeCoultre caliber 139 movement keeps the time, making this timepiece both highly accurate and exceptionally chic.

The Cartier tradition of clock and watchmaking extends almost as far back as the founding of the company in 1898. Thereafter, Cartier's clocks, table clocks, and watches were manufactured with an emphasis on perfection, beauty and originality. At first a secondary activity, Cartier’s definitive approach to l’horlogerie became a point of prestige for this famed company.
