Accompanied by Cartier red leather fitted presentation box and original key.
The present lot contrasts nicely to Cartier's ethereal designs in rock crystal and enamel produced in the 1910s and 1920s, and beautifully illustrates the aesthetic timeline into the 1930s. In many ways, the handsome and simple design provides an almost masculine counterpoint to those earlier pieces.The substantial and imposing case, composed of lapis lazuli with nephrite accents, bears a striking resemblance to the design of the celebrated and record-breaking F.D.R. Victory Clock, sold by Sotheby's New York, December 4th, 2007.
