Harry Fane‘s usual array of vintage Cartier watches often date back to the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s, however, his latest Dover Street Market London-exclusive release takes things one step further — not only do they date to the ’20s, but these watches are also encrusted in diamonds and other precious gems.

The star of the show is the diamond and emerald wristwatch that’s shaped rectangularly and dates back to 1925. It combines the aforementioned stones alongside black onyx for a dazzling bezel and house. Additionally, the watch is attached to a silk band with diamond-set Moghul-esque pavé shoulders, while the 18k gold plating laying underneath ever-so-slightly peaks out beneath the stones and towards the rear case.

Elsewhere, we find a 1920s example that is equally special, as it features an open, square-shaped case with rounded corners that is set with rose-cut diamonds. Diamond-set openwork lugs and the original diamond-set “Deployment” buckle appear alongside a dial with the traditional Cartier configuration, making this timepiece a rare and desirable classic. Again, it comes with a silk band, but is made from 18k gold rather than plated.

Lastly, Fane and DSML present the oldest watch in the range: a 1919/1920 Cartier platinum and diamond “Tortue.” It’s a watch that shows the lengths Cartier went to so that it could stand out and make a difference in the horology world, as details such as the four rose-cut diamonds set between the case and the strap were an adventurous design concept 100 years ago.

Harry Fane’s latest selection of vintage Cartier watches retail for approximately $69,500 USD, $67,800 USD, and $49,650 USD respectively, and can be seen above. For those interested in purchasing, head over to Dover Street Market London’s website or in-store to find out more.
