I sold a Patek to the CEO of a corporation, and he said, “I’ve got all my people in the room, my board of directors and the senior vice presidents, and they all like to wear Rolexes because they want to show they can afford a watch like that. But I just sit here with my little Patek Philippe with its leather strap, and I know that I’ve got the best watch in the room.” It didn’t look fancy or say much from the outside, but he enjoyed wearing it. The scarcity and quality appealed to him, as well as its subtlety.

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. That word is legitimacy and I love to hear the French pronounce it. Cartier is what they call a legitimate brand. They have heaps of reputation, a solid history and plenty of important people who wear their products. Classic Cartier designs are also a great influence to their direct competitors. They really are the model of a solid luxury watch brand. Please click on a drop down menu to view our Online Catalog, where you can see some of our inventory and

Jewelers of the 18th and 19th century owe much of their fortune to diamonds. That is, to a new source of diamond mines discovered in Brazil in 1725. Diamonds in Europe became more easily available. It changed the look of popular jewelry. The stones themselves became important, not the settings. These gemstones inspired the rise of new interest in jewelry. It was supposed to be a retirement hobby, but it began to take over my life. I’d buy a set of screwdrivers, a pair of tweezers, and then I’d go to a meeting and buy some crystals or main springs. Now I’ve got a large supply of parts.

Cartier took over five years developing their newest watch, and it shows. In terms of streamlining precision while still maintaining efficiency, it is the most cutting-edge watch ever developed. The luxury watch brand, which has served French royalty and major celebrities for decades, has also made great strides in envisioning the future of watchmaking through their division ‘Ideas + Development.’ The Cartier ID Two definitely encompasses this futurist vision in exciting and stylistically profound ways.

An independent watchmaker in England popularized something called the coaxial escapement, which he used in a very limited production of expensive pocket and wristwatches. But then Omega patented the design and is still using it in its wristwatches today. It doesn’t require lubrication. I think they had some problems with it developmentally, but now they’re over that, and it’s supposed to be pretty reliable. These two details are a handhold to recognize pieces from the now retired ‘Collection Privée’ series, since only a few pieces did not have the rosette or were not individually numbered.

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.

We buy Cartier watches in yellow or white gold, and even in stainless steel. And any watch with diamonds is worth even more. And we’ll pay extra for a watch if you still have the original box and papers. Bullock will pay the highest price to buy your pre-owned Cartier watch! In house movement, attention to detail, exquisite craftsmanship – all hallmarks of the world’s top manufacture luxury watches; Are Cartier Watches a true luxe investment? Yes, but don’t let my honeyed words convince you. Perhaps these other Cartier timepieces unveiled at SIHH 2012 will.

Another classic piece of jewelry which is a symbol of age and wealth may be taking some money out of our pockets and replacing it with something else – a pocket watch. Yes, these are coming back into style as well. IWC Schaffhausen’s Portuguese Hand-wound 5454 is a replica of a 70 year old line comprised of pocket-watch style wristwatches. The sapphire crystal front, black face, and black strap are all about the classic masculine feel. Brand New Fashionably cute earrings at giveaway prices. $3 and up for these looks and more.

The dial is pretty cool and I like seeing it and reading it. However, I feel that Cartier could have extended the minute hand a bit more and given it a bit more lume. In fact, I wonder what it would look like with larger hands overall. The sub second dial is tastefully done and the classic Cartier DNA is preserved with the Roman numerals. The biggest point of contention for most people is the “expanded’ date window – Cartier is just being trendy with that. Personally, I don’t like it and feel that it off-balances the dial.

I was first made aware of Cartier’s horological ascendance with the Cartier Ballon Bleu at the 19th Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in 2009. True snobs would turn their noses at this statement, after all, the 42mm stunner didn’t have an in-house movement, within the well polished case beat the heart of a standard ETA but like all Cartier products, the finish of the dials and the attention to the distinctive crown to me were but hallmarks of a jeweler in pursuit of eventually becoming a serious watch maker. 1 year later, they have proven me right.

One trend worth noting is that women are putting away their dainty watches for oversized men’s style watches with large faces. The Balloon Bleu watch by Cartier, with sleek metal styling and solid gold incorporated into every model, is the most popular Cartier style at the moment. We have spoken of co-branded watch many times and we have featured quite a few, ranging from Rolexes signed by Tiffany’s and Cuervo Y Sobrinos, to Breitlings signed by French dealers LIP. We have never, however, featured a co-branded IWC, and we have never featured a watch with a Cartier name on it that was actually made by Cartier.

Its all about the case and the dial for this yellow gold colored stunner. It is not marked for gold content, but is most likely gold fill or rolled gold plate. It has a stainless steel back for long wearing. The case speaks for itself with the lined bezel and scrollwork on the sides of the lugs. The dial appears to be original and is textures with lines in the four diagonal quadrants. The movement is by Empire and is 17 jewels. $215.00 Glossary

For a while, I owned an early Patek Philippe wristwatch from 1912—it ended up in the Patek Museum and in their book on wristwatches. It was actually a ladies’ wristwatch that very much resembled a pocket watch. When I first owned it, there was quite a bit of controversy over whether it started out as a pocket watch or a wristwatch. Even the factory was confused, but finally they determined it was actually made as a wristwatch. Santos 100 watch, which is larger than many of the other models. However, it is known to be a symbol of an independent spirit.

Investment potential is another consideration. Is it a watch that is going to maybe increase in popularity and therefore in value? It’s not like a startup stock where you can buy into a new laser company and all of a sudden they come out with a new product, and the stock quadruples overnight. That doesn’t happen in watches. But I think people maybe look for something that will retain its value and at least keep up with inflation. The paintings of Salvador Dali were probably the inspiration for the Cartier “Crash” from the late 1960s. This 18K gold Churchill version of the same idea is from 1985.

Another difference is the small writing on the bottom of the dial, the writing that says “Swiss Made” on the original watch. However, the replica doesn’t feature that writing, but it is so small people wouldn’t probably notice it and just a watch connoisseur would realize that it is a replica. Another difference can be seen on the chronographs and it’s nothing related to the numbers printed on them, but something about the overall look they have. It seems that the chronographs on the original watch stand out more because they are engraved in the face of the watch, rather than just painted like on the replica watch.
