If you have been collecting watches for a while I think you’re going to appreciate the following timepiece. I am pleased to offer for sale this ca 1920’s a NOBLE DESIGN WATCH features GOLD steel enameled DIAL, new made GOLD PLATED 23K CASE and original pocket watch movement with BLUE STEEL SCREWS, GOLD WHEELS, STRAIGHT LINE DAMASKEENING, THREE FINGER BRIDGE, END-PIECES of ANOTHER STEEL for the ESCAPE WHEEL, BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING, fully services, restored and now ready start its new life with a new owner. That was made by the venerable CARTIER.

 

This gorgeous, men’s timepiece features a handsome GOLD steel engraved DIAL is in good condition. This dial features a 60 minute checkered inner track border, gold enamel raised & engraved Roman numerals and steel Pencil-style hands. The new dial has been professionally updated, and now is in excellent condition. There is trademark CARTIER symbol near the IX. The dial is decorated GOLD INLAY and WHITE STONES.

 

It is a registered design model that features a HEARTs FORM three piece GOLD PLATED – 23K case that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. HEARTs FORM – 23K case, new custom made, fantastic, builds of THE WANDOLEC ART STUDIO specially for this excellent CARTIER movement. The lugs are in great condition while the winding crown with HEART is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front & back side. The case is decorated HIGH QUALITY ENGRAVING.

 

Peeking inside via the glass lid, I find a spotless, a finely and high quality, nickel-finished movement with BLUE STEEL SCREWS, GOLD WHEELS, STRAIGHT LINE DAMASKEENING, THREE FINGER BRIDGE, END-PIECES of ANOTHER STEEL for the ESCAPE WHEEL, BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING.

 

The bridge holds the escape wheel is furnished with an ANOTHER STEEL END PIECE. This end piece is used to minimize the axial clearance of the wheel arbor and enhances the precision of this important element of the escapement. End steel also protect the stuffs from dirt and dust.

 

The number of jewels used in watch movements increased over the last 150 years as jewelling grew less expensive and watches grew more accurate. The only bearings that really need to be jeweled in a watch are the ones in the going train - the gear train that transmits force from the mainspring barrel to the balance wheel - since only they are constantly under force from the mainspring. The wheels that turn the hands (the motion work) and the calendar wheels are not under load, while the ones that wind the mainspring (the keyless work) are used very seldom, so they do not wear significantly. Friction has the greatest effect in the wheels that move the fastest, so they benefit most from jewelling. So the first mechanism to be jeweled in watches was the balance wheel pivots, followed by the escapement. As more jeweled bearings were added, they were applied to slower moving wheels, and jewelling progressed up the going train toward the barrel. A 17 jewel watch has every bearing from the balance wheel to the mainspring barrel jeweled, so it was considered a 'fully jeweled' watch.

 

The movement is signed CARTIER – PARIS – 18 EIGHTEEN JEWELS – 8 EIGHT ADJUSTMENTS.

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the ORIGINAL CARTIER movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.

 

It is fitted on a new 18mm red alligator style genuine leather strap with gold Stainless steel buckle that is vintage style and goes great with this wonderful watch.

This beautiful and fully restored men’s watch winds and sets smoothly while keeping accurate time.

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
