Harry Fane Vintage Cartier Small Tank Cintrée Watch, 1968/69
Harry Fane is well know for his vintage watch and jewellery collections. Since 1978 he has been collecting pieces from Cartier Golden Years of the 1920s & 1930s. He is recognised as a world authority in this field with a special emphasis on the objets d'art.
Cartier’s most famous and iconic watch the Grand Cintrée was first introduced in 1921 with a distinctive curved case which was both innovative and elegant. Cartier made two smaller models in the following years, one medium size and one this miniature version which was specifically aimed for women who could benefit from the curvature of the case and the elegance of the design in a much more feminine size.
This example is dated to 1968/9. Silvered dial signed Cartier Paris with radial black Roman numerals and blued “Épée” hands with inner minute track Chemin de Fer. A faceted winder with faceted sapphire.
