Cartier - Princely Pebble

Cartier Princely Pebble

Focus on the Pebble-Shaped Watch

It was in the capital of the United Kingdom that Cartier drew some of its inspiration during the 1960s and 1970s, notably giving rise to the Crash and the Maxi Oval. In 1972, a new pebble-shaped watch emerged from this wave of creativity. As it celebrates its 50th anniversary by joining the Cartier Collection paying tribute to the Maison’s key heritage milestones, its aesthetics and size remain very similar to the original, as do the blued hands subtly matching the color of the cabochon. The eggshell color replaces the original cream tone on the dial, whose square perimeter is harmoniously integrated into the roundness of the yellow gold case. Cartier has meanwhile acquired a state-of-the-art Manufacture with considerable movement-making expertise and has therefore equipped this watch with its thinnest caliber measuring just 2.15mm thick. A concentrated blend of design and daring elegance, this limited series is destined for just 150 people with excellent taste – or couples who decide to share it?
