Cartier Crash was invented in London in 1967 when it was the prime time of Swing Longdon. So, you will see some features or designs that reflects that age of the Cartier brand. How did it come to exist? There is a good story here. A customers who damaged his watch in an accident sent back his watch to the store to restore it. Back then it was Jean-Jacques Cartier who was in charged and who was attracted and got inspired by the distorted shape. So he decided to put such shape in the library. With the asymmetric dial to show a unique beauty, limited Crash suddenly jumped into the line of most valuable watches.
And now in the brand new Cartier Crash Skeleton series, the distorted shape remains and this is a platinum case. In order to match this distorted case, its movement on Cartier Crash was also changed. Through the big Roman number indexes in the skeleton dial, you will enjoy the working mechanism of the movement. Actually, it is those big Roman numbers that serve as Watch Bridge that support the movement. What an astounding design.

Through the see-through sapphire mirror case back, 9618 MC automatic winding-up movement is presented before you.
