The origins of Cartier’s most eccentric wristwatch date back to 1967. There are frightening unverified stories about the way Cartier replica watches live, and both take place in London. One is about a woman carrying her Baignoire watch to repair because it had been involved in a heavily damaged traffic accident. Another story is about the Cartier London manager who was involved in the crash that led to the fire. His watch – a giant curved Maxi oval – melts from heat exposure. The melted watch inspired the then head of Cartier London, jean-jacques Cartier, to create a watch that was inevitably named “crash”.
The fake Cartier London watch uses a gold and platinum (just three platinum) case, is 43 millimeters by 23 millimeters, and is produced in very limited quantities. Before Cartier took over production of Crash in Paris (after the concentration of watchmaking), two designers at Cartier London left the company and founded their own brand of Churchill watches. The company is not that successful, nor is it long term viable. But their first version was interesting – the Churchill Crash watch. The 52mm-long white or gold case, with an ETA movement, is sold in the UK and the us. While the watch is usually the subject of discussion, it has never been sought after by collectors or given a reasonable price at auction. The Cartier London Crash watch was still a fire sale, and a few years later, a piece of work – preferably in white and gold with the magic words “London” on the dial – appeared and was auctioned off.
Cartier Paris went on to produce Crash watches, and La Maison launched a limited edition of 200 and a slightly smaller 38mm case in 1991. Later, in 1997, an additional 13-piece gold limited-edition was crafted to reopen the Rue DE la Paix store. Meanwhile, La Maison took customers’ Crash custom orders because the watch almost never went on sale due to extremely limited production. In 2013, Cartier released the Crash watch, a women’s diamond set with gold and gem-encrusted bracelets.
Watch collectors and watch enthusiasts, especially in Asia and Europe, have spent the past decade trying to persuade Cartier to make a bigger and more wearable Crash watch than the classic edition. 38mm May sound reasonable, but as the watch becomes very sharp at the top, it becomes a very small gem. It’s worth the wait! Luxury Cartier replica watches presented the much-anticipated work at the SIHH 2015 in Geneva as an entirely new design-and, more importantly, ultimately in a case that was big enough for men to wear.Cartier can complete it easily by creating a larger case suitable for an existing movement (for example, Calibre 430 MC or Calibre 9780 MC used in the tank Cintree). It certainly fits the bill and happy collectors. But instead, Cartier did it the way Cartier did, and decided to open a new series called “mechanical legend” in the advanced watchmaking series, with the new Crash watch as its first chapter.
