One of many issues I really like most about previous Cartier is all of the non-wristwatches: Desk clocks, purse watches, pendant watches. Again then, Cartier slapped watches in every kind of different stuff, too: lighters, cash clips, pens, and different random issues that had no enterprise being a watch besides that Cartier (or its clients) thought it would possibly be cool. Cartier was some rattling artistic. It was the mid-century equal to at present’s omnipresent digital clocks. Whereas at present, we will get the time on our telephone, laptop computer, microwave, automotive dashboard, or good canine leash (sure, an actual factor); again then, a lighter with a clock would possibly even have some utility, telling you the way lengthy you’ve got been on a smoke break.
