Cartier Crash

It might be one of the reasons why women do not care its price or discount, as Cartier Crash is one of the most affectionate watches for women!

In the mid 1960s, Cartier's vice president died in a London car accident. The crash caused a fire which burned his body and the Cartier watch that he was wearing at the time. The piece burning on his wrist happened to be the tall and oblong-shaped Bagnoire Alongee. 

The watch survived. Cartier thus decided to design  the Crash as a  melted Bagnoire Alongee. It became the Cartier Crash in 1967 and to start to produce limited edition Crash design in 1990s.

They are rare, expensive and beautiful.
