In case there was any doubt, Cartier’s shaped watches are hot and are only getting hotter. Already designated by us as one of the ten choices for gentlemen at Antiquorums’ most recent auction, did the Crash outperform not only its estimate but also set the world record at auction for this model. It was sold for HKD 812,500/CHF 101,865. This equals an amount of about $104.768, substantially more than a Crash of the same 1991 limited edition sold for in December of last year at the boutique auction house ‘Fortuna’ in New York City. This watch achieved $81,250.
