And while the irony of such a crucial moment in watch history being oft overlooked is not lost on me, the sad truth is that Cartier has never focused on luxury timepieces, if they had, they probably would have joined the watch gods in the annals of time but they have always been a jeweler and till today- have always concentrated on jewellery rather than on their timepieces. Today we have an article written by George Cramer, an authority and trusted resource on Cartier watches. If you want to know anything about Cartier, he’s the man. His knowledge is encyclopedic and he shares it as a moderator on Revo-Online

A Tavannes watch imported into England at this time should bear the SFC sponsors mark of Schwob Freres, the London agents for Cyma-Tavannes. While Stockwell could have imported a Tavannes movement, I would consider it unusual.

Do you believe that luxury watches are also good investments? Soon after studying the testimonies of different people that is well familiar with luxury watches, it came down into one conclusion that it is not for everybody. Investing with high-class pieces ingests solid information and lots of researches done. Not enough knowledge about the actual investments for luxury watches will only cause disaster on the investors’ part. In the next lines, I will restrict just to Cartier, since that’s the brand I’ve been following for a long time. Some models have see-thru backs, so the movement can be inspected on the spot and they were all individually numbered.

But the real wristwatch breakthrough came in 1904, when, according to Cartier lore, a Brazilian aviation pioneer named Alberto Santos-Dumont complained to his friend Louis Cartier of the shortcomings of fumbling with a pocket watch on a short test flight. Cartier made his friend a flat, square wristwatch called, appropriately, the Santos. In the process, Cartier popularized wristwatches in France and throughout the world. In the early 1920s , Cartier partnered with fellow Frenchmen Jaeger and Breguet to produce movements for its watches. Other illustrious Cartier collaborators included Swiss makers Vacheron Constantin , Patek Phillipe , and Audemars Piguet.

But does the fever pitch of these sales endanger what has made mechanical watches so fascinating in the first place? In contrast to these brand-driven, investment-oriented buying frenzies, Sotheby’s November auction in London features creations by George Daniels, who handcrafted watches one at a time. His creations remind us what true watchmaking is all about. It’s clear, though, that the business of serious watch collecting is here to stay. We sat down with the respected Milan-based watch connoisseur and dealer Max Bernardini for an insider’s view on collecting—and to talk about the watches of today that might become the collectibles of tomorrow.

I got interested in pocket watches from working on mechanical things. I had an old car, and working on it gave me immediate satisfaction. It’s a thrill to fix something and get it to run. But I realized that keeping an old car in San Francisco wasn’t the most efficient thing to do, so I guess pockets watches became a substitute. From pocket watches I moved into wristwatches. Pocket watches are still my primary interest, but I love classic wristwatches , like old Rolex Bubblebacks and things like that. This Hamilton Coronado from 1937 is an Art Deco masterpiece. It features 14K white gold, black enamel, and blued steel hands.

I get old Pateks once in a while that have an old band on them, but I don’t know if it’s the original band. These watches may come from the 1940s and maybe the band was put on in the ’60s, so it’s still 40 years old. The watch table had lines snaking out the door.

The “exclusive” part comes from the fact that Tavannes watches are sold strictly through a network of authorized dealers, most of them independent. No big-box or department stores, no direct (or third-party) Internet sales. “We don’t want our customer buying a watch, and then seeing it offered a month later on a home shopping channel at half of what they paid,” says Cummings. If your watch is equipped with an automatic mechanical movement, its spring is wound up thanks to the movements of your wrist, which cause an oscillation that supplies the energy required for the winding system.

During the last financial crisis the high-end watch market took a serious plunge. Luxuries such as the purchase of expensive watches tends to be one of the first things to go during rough economic times. The Swiss watch market is especially sensitive to economic depressions, and finds itself always having to aim where new money is. This is because high-end wrist watches for the most part are a poor economic investment. You should buy them because you love them, because they are beautiful, and because you want to wear them. Not because you think they will hold or increase in value.

Cartier, known throughout the world as a symbol of fashion and cosmopolitan glamour, has been creating exquisite jewelry and timepieces since the end of the 19th century. In 1888, they created the first women’s wristwatch and in 1904, Cartier watches became the first to be made with a leather strap. Since then, the Cartier brothers have continued to dazzle the upper echelons of European society. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Prince of Wales declared them “Jeweler of Kings and King of Jewelers.” This legacy has continued on through the rest of the 20 th century.

I predicted in 2010 that the Calibre would soon have a bracelet option and in 2011 Cartier offered one. For me, the watch was now complete. Cartier is known for rather nice bracelets so it was a shame to see a new sport watch on just a strap. That is the one I wanted to review and so I did. C.J.

In the early 1920s Cartier formed a joint company with Edward Jaeger (of Jaeger- LeCoutre ) to produce movements solely for Cartier. Thus was the European watch & clock company born, although Cartier continued to use movements from other great makers. Cartier watches can be found with movements from Vancheron Constatin, Audemars-Piguet, Movado and LeCoutre I’d say my favorite classic wristwatch is the Movado Polyplan. I think it was patented or created in about 1912, and from what I understand they made them into the mid-1930s, but very few of them. I’ve owned a bunch over the years and have sold some to the Movado Museum.

The bracelet is very nice and looks like that of an evolved Roadster bracelet. Aside from looking nice, the best part is the locking butterfly clasp. Some Cartier clasps are mere tension clasps which are prone to opening if your arm experiences shock. They can also degrade over time. The detailing on the clasp is very good and it operates smoothly. C.J. Charles Jewelers in La Jolla carries a large selection of Swiss watches for both men and women. Brands include A.

There is a word that is thrown around a lot in the watch world that means the public takes a watch (or anything else for that matter) seriously.

The “exclusive” part comes from the fact that Tavannes watches are sold strictly through a network of authorized dealers, most of them independent. No big-box or department stores, no direct (or third-party) Internet sales. “We don’t want our customer buying a watch, and then seeing it offered a month later on a home shopping channel at half of what they paid,” says Cummings. If your watch is equipped with an automatic mechanical movement, its spring is wound up thanks to the movements of your wrist, which cause an oscillation that supplies the energy required for the winding system.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. The story of Tavannes begins in 1891 with the founding of the company by a 40-year-old master watchmaker, Henri-Frédéric Sandoz, in the town of Tavannes, today a small city of approximately 3,500. Sandoz was a mechanical genius; his company not only made its own movements—called Calilbers—in-house (one of the few Swiss companies to do so), but also developed proprietary watch-making machinery (lathes, milling machines, etc.) which was sold to other manufacturers. The Tavannes company’s early manufacture of practical wristwatches for men resulted in a contract by the U.S. Signal Corps. Watches of this type saw service during World War I; Photo courtesy oldwristwatches.com

Cartier watches have been around since the mid-1800s. Since there have been so many unique watches made over such a long period of time, it is tough to find a complete catalog of all the watches that Cartier has ever made. Certainly there is no one resources (that we have found) that lists all Cartier watches online. But, all is not lost. There are a handful of books that look at Cartier watches specifically as well as Cartier among its peer brands. Furthermore, auctioneers like eBay and Sotheby’s have catalogs available online that will give a good overview of some of the Cartier watches available.

Not every jewelry store has master jewelry designers capable of turning a customer’s dream into a customized piece of keepsake reality. But ever since C.J. Charles opened its shop doors, its master jewelers have stood ready to exceed customer’s expectations with an ability to design engagement or special occasion rings with diamonds ranging from5 to 25 ct. Cartier was founded in 1847 when Louis-François Cartier, then an apprentice to Parisian jeweler Adolphe Picard, took over the business when his master passed away. By 1853, young Louis-François had become a favorite of Napoleon III’s cousin Princess Mathilde, who helped Cartier gain entry to Parisian society.

Other market leaders included Cartier , which developed the Santos in 1904 for aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont—he wanted a watch he could wear on his wrist while flying. The Cartier Tank was developed around World War I. These were the market leaders. Cartier was actually pretty important in the development of the wristwatch. Tiffany was a large retailer but was much less important as an innovator. Cartier is unique in many ways. It is for instance one of the very few brands that has a very rich collection of models in the twenties that are still in their current line up.

Indeed this is a good indicator, but not the best indicator as there were many Cartier watches produced prior to the technology required to make the micro-script possible and not all Cartier watches have Roman numerals for the dial to have the micro-script signature. Furthermore, the micro-script is not always located at the same place and if the dial has been refinished it may not appear at all. “all original versus “authentic”. This watch has an 18k gold case, with a big 54.5mm face and is 2omm thick. The thickness is due to its two closable faces and its unique movement, which have both allowed for a range of complications.

The first watches to contain in-house Cartier movements were very high-end. Cartier offered a brand new look and feel to the type of watch that could bear the Cartier name. All these watches had exotic movements and prices were on par with that of some very nice real estate. In 2010 Cartier announced the release of the simply named Calibre, a story that I covered here The new masculine watch offered a sporty look (more so than Cartier’s other sport watches such as the Pasha, Santos, and Roadster) as well as, for the first time, an “entry-level” Cartier with an in-house movement.

WHY make it easy to pass when we could get paid twice once for the failure and once for the re-take. In most states it is a crime to practice engineering without a PE license. Claiming you have a valid license when you don’t is also a crime. The factory opened at the beginning of the 20th century and originally made detonators for the military. Later during soviet times production moved to watches. The factory made both ZIM and Pobeda watches. While the watch is currently just a concept watch, it indicates the future of watch-making, and will be launched at the upcoming Salon International de Haute Horlogerie in Geneva.

The early reverso models with the Tavannes Caliber 064 are signed “Lisica S.A.” on their movements. Lisica was merely a holding company established by Tavannes to create a “buffer” between the two companies which otherwise would have confused jewelers and consumers as to who actually made the reverso watch. The “La Captive” watches sold by Cartier also can be seen with the Lisica signature on the movements.) The actual strap will likely be dark brown gator, although it has not been verified however. I guess we will need to chew our tongues for two weeks till it’s awaited unveiling at the SIHH (Beauty salon International p Haute Horlogerie) within Geneva.

This is what we have here. In the 1960s Cartier decided to spread the love (for strategic reasons, obviously) and sell a few out of house brands, IWC was one of them. Many of you are thinking, “Hey, aren’t IWC and Cartier owned by the same company anyways?” and yes they are, today. But the Richemont group even form until 1988 and they didn’t acquire IWC until the year 2000, so at the time this watch was sold, they were in no way connected.

So Rolex popularized the concept of obtaining chronometer certificates for wristwatches. Omega then started doing it with their Constellations. Patek didn’t really do it for wristwatches as far as I know. What Patek does is stamp their movements with a Geneva seal of quality. Some of them have one stamp, and some of them have two. But nobody has ever been able to explain to me the difference. It’s the same stamp. One would be like on a bridge, and one would be on the lower plate. And that just means that it met certain standards of quality production.

ALL of OUR PRE-OWNED watches have been AUTHENTICATED by a team of professionals during the initial purchase, service or consignment process, and after dealing with all makes and models for over 30 years, we do not let any “fakes” or “questionable origin” pieces even near our stores and certainly will not sell any – Better Business Bureau (BBB) A+ rating is just another proof of that. Our grading system is very conservative and we often underrate the condition of our watches, so that you would be pleasantly surprised when it arrives.

While Patek Philippe invented the wrist-watch in 1868, it was traditionally worn by women. It was Louis Cartier who started the trend for men’s wrist-watches in 1904. It was at the request of Alberto Santons-Dumont, a famous early aviator who asked Cartier for a watch that could be used easily during flight. While Cartier uses movements from Swiss watchmakers today, in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Cartier name was as renowned for their haute horology as it was for their haute jewellery.

This advertisement by Tavannes was used for years, beginning in the late 1930s, to symbolize its preeminence as the world’s fourth-largest watch manufacturer. The artist’s rendering shows the five factories located in Tavannes (the company’s headquarters); Neuchatel; La Joux; La Chaux de Fonds; and LeLocle. Combined, the factories made 4,000 finished pieces a day. In addition to being distributed through Dunhill, the Tavannes “La Captive” model caught the attention of luxury jeweler Cartier. This specimen’s sterling silver case is overlaid with beautiful white and red enamel.
