If most people’s understanding of watches is an ideal product that is quite satisfactory, it may be that in the watch culture in recent years, such constraints have already been broken, no matter from the design of the shape or from the traditional Taking materials, even unconventional high-tech applications, have more definitions of pure mechanical aggregates. Of course, this breakthrough is not a sudden product of this era. As early as 1967, London was the golden age of the ‘Swinging London’ wave. It is conceivable that the Crash watch was born in this year , Naturally carrying the restlessness and eclecticism of that free age. Through hip-hop play and pop art subvert the traditional dogma, when the outstanding master watchmaker and such rebellious thoughts met, the result of their collision was the Crash watch.
Cartier enjoys this shake and break of routine, introducing humorous elements and noble and elegant style into the meticulous and precise watchmaking field. Over time, the Crash watch, which has a very limited circulation, has become one of the most collectible timepieces, thanks to its asymmetrical dial design and its inspired imbalance of distortion and unexpected association. Its name is also mentioned from time to time among the knowledgeable elite, and for them, the Crash watch represents the avant-garde culture of the 1970s. Today, this legend continues.
In 2013, Crash launched four new limited edition watches made of 18K rose gold case with brilliant-cut diamonds and 18K rhodium-plated white gold case with brilliant-cut diamonds. With a diameter of 38.45×25.5 mm, it is especially worn on women’s wrists to show a slender beauty.
The watch’s case is set with 150 brilliant-cut diamonds and weighs about 2.15 carats. Two of the four watches are not only set with diamonds on the case, but also on the bracelet are unrelentingly covered with diamonds. The beauty of luxury.
In fact, the biggest feature of the Crash watch is the twist of the dial. Although this design breaks the conventional visual experience, it has also become a brave pioneer and attempt. The abstract Roman numerals such as magic are presented in the dial. It is the abstract artistic conception of time, and the consistent use of the sword-shaped Langang pointer also represents the classic elements of Cartier.
The watch uses a sealed back design and does not present the movement in front of everyone. Perhaps because the positive mood is enough to steal the limelight, Cartier does not want to distract everyone’s attention to the back.
Not so much as the dial’s most bright spot, in fact, this watch’s strap is also the first time to use a drop-shaped material and the case is made of the material, dazzling, extraordinary. It is not so much a tool as a timepiece, but in many cases, it is the best decoration for female friends. The other two watches are also set with diamonds on the bracelet.
This watch is equipped with a Cartier manual-winding movement with a thickness of only 8.8 mm and 18 ruby bearings. In fact, according to general logic, such a watch should be equipped with a quartz movement, but Cartier is not so It shows that it is extraordinary.
Summary: The new Crash watches launched this time are limited editions and only available at Cartier’s designated boutiques. It can be seen that its price should also be quite high. In fact, as a tribute to the classic, this watch fully captures the essence of Crash, it can be described as a very memorable landmark watch.
