It all started in 1967. A client of the Cartier jewelry house went to a London boutique to have his 1:1 UK Cartier fake watches repaired, deformed following a car accident. But for Jean-Jacques Cartier, founder of the brand, it’s a revelation! There was no question of repairing the object, quite the contrary, its unstructured design with random and non-conformist shapes literally bewitched the watchmaker: the high quality Cartier Crash replica watches, with its asymmetrical and distorted dial, was born, shaking up the conventions of fine watchmaking, such as the had already made the house, almost 60 years earlier, by introducing a square wristwatch, the Santos model. The timeless lines of perfect Cartier Crash copy watches make it an emblematic model of the Cartier house, which will be reinterpreted over time. It was reborn, for example, in 2013 through a limited edition adorned with drops of gold, gray or pink. More prized than ever, a limited edition of this now iconic piece, the top Cartier 3618 Crash replica watches, estimated at between $100,000 and $200,000, goes on sale tomorrow at auction house Sotheby’s New York.
You don’t decide to create an icon, it imposes itself. However, the Swiss made fake Cartier Crash watches had everything to become one. By shaking up the traditional forms and conventions of Haute Horlogerie, this model symbolizes the originality of an era tired of conformity and eager for new creativity. Its asymmetrical dial is reminiscent of the famous soft Cartier super clone watches shop site of Salvador Dalí’s pictorial masterpiece: “The Persistence of Memory” (1931), famous canvas exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York. The Spanish artist established himself as one of the most prolific surrealist artists of the 20th century, on whom Freud’s psychoanalysis, the unconscious and the dream had a strong influence. In his famous painting, he represents a mineral landscape of Port Lligat (a small coastal village in Catalonia near Cadaques) composed of rocks, water and a dead olive branch. A sort of panorama of time at a standstill, everything is frozen there, even the Cartier replica watches wholesale, soft and twisted, incapable of telling the time. About this painting, the painter will say to his wife: “No one will be able to forget this painting after having seen it”, convinced that these distorted watches will mark their time forever. Nearly a century later, this strong image persists and is even embodied in a jewel of the Cartier house, which has also made an impression with its avant-garde spirit.
