London in 1967 coincided with the golden age of the ‘Swinging London’ wave. It is conceivable that the Crash watch born in this year naturally carried the free era Agitation is active and eclectic. 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.

Extremely secretive and coveted, the Crash watch has created the highest prestige of rare products

   The story begins with a customer returning a Cartier watch that was damaged in the accident to repair. At the time, the person in charge of Cartier London was Jean-Jacques Cartier, who was deeply attracted by the deformed case. It was copied and the Crash watch was born.

Crash (shock) metaphor shocks the soul, rebels against stereotypes, the pursuit of freedom and innovation!

   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, the Crash watch launched four new limited edition models. For the first time, it was matched with an exquisite bracelet made of drop-shaped white gold or drop-shaped rose gold. In another more rare and precious model, the entire bracelet is paved with brilliant diamonds.

   In tribute to the year it was born, this legendary, rare watch has launched a total of 267 limited-edition watches with a gold bracelet and 67 limited-edition watches with a diamond-paved bracelet. These coveted rare products are only available at Cartier’s designated boutiques.
