THE DETAILS

Case: Made in the revered Wright & Davies ( W&D ) workshop who had been established by Cartier London in response to the post-war luxury taxes on imports having made it prohibitive to import to London the most popular models made by Cartier Paris. W&D made wristwatches to be sold primarily by Cartier London. In 1950 they produced examples of the Tank Normale and other familiar models, and it was not until 1965-6 that the iconic Cartier London designed watch cases were offered for sale at the Boutique in Bond Street. Measurements: Diameter approx. 35.2mm, thickness 6.5mm including glass.

Cartier References: 18k London Hallmarks. { r } date punch for 1972. Sponsors punch [ JC ] for Jacques Cartier Cartier London number 1334.

Movement: Manual wind • Signed Jaeger-LeCoutre numbered 2122195

• Calibre P/838 • 9”’ • Jewels • Annular Balance • Blued Flat Hairspring • Swiss Lever Escapement • Côtes de Genève decoration.

Cartier London purchased movements directly from Jaeger-LeCoultre and this movement was manufactured c.1970-71. The Calibre P/838 features in many of the innovative designs of this period 1965-1973.

Dial: White dial with Cartier signature in script, radial black Roman numerals in the typical Cartier London style without the Chemin-de-Fer. Blued Epée hands, a notched crown with sapphire cabochon.

HISTORY

Cartier London: was established in London in 1904. Jacques-Théodule Cartier youngest grandson of the founder Louis-François Cartier and youngest brother of Louis-Joseph Cartier became by 1931 the majority shareholder of the Cartier London company. On his death in 1941 his shares eventually passed to his son Jean-Jacques Cartier. The 3 principal Cartier companies, Paris, London & New York were owned and managed by a Cartier until 1962 when Cartier New York was sold to Edward Goldstein of jewellers Black, Star and Frost Corporation. In 1968 Cartier Paris was sold to American born British based film producers the Danziiger Brothers. In 1974 Jean-Jacques Cartier sold his shares to the again new investors in Cartier Paris and by 1976 the ownership of Cartier worldwide was unified once again under one ownership, Cartier Monde.

Watch Design Influences: Louis Cartier was the inspirational designer of so many of the early wristwatches, paramount being the Tank Normale designed in 1917 which was first offered for sale in 1919. Until 1950 the majority of the watch cases sold by Cartier London were made under the supervision of Cartier Paris, however, by 1950 Wright and Davies a watchmaker under the control of Cartier London started to produce models for sale by the Cartier London boutique. It appears the initial intention was to mirror existing designs and certainly until 1965 the vast majority of the cases made bore little difference to the cases made in Paris.

Cartier London Cases 1965-1973: This period coincided with Jean-Jacques Cartier being the sole bearer of the Cartier Torch with Paris and New York under non-Cartier ownership.

Jean-Jacques Cartier, in the tradition of his family, was very much interested in design and engaged a number of prominent designers to work for him including F.A. Mew and Rupert Emmerson. It was Emmerson who worked more closely with Jean-Jacques Cartier on the designs of watch cases. Rightly proud of his heritage, Jean-Jacques ensured all designs he oversaw had a genesis in original Paris designs. His brilliance was to work within the designs of the past and imaginatively re-work them. He and Emmerson are credited with the Crash design which takes it’s base from the Baignoire that was first designed by Louis Cartier in 1912. During this 8 year period (1965-1973) the combined talent and ambition of Jean-Jacques Cartier and Rupert Emmerson led to the creation of other now famous models including the Decagonal, Octagonal, Mai Oval, Maxi Ronde, Pebble, Losange Twin Strap, etc.

A Bold Outline: A constant theme of the newly designed London cases was a very bold silhouette to emphasise the overall shape of the design, uncluttered by lugs, the cases “float” on the straps. The Maxi Ronde is a perfect example of the design ethos expounded by Jean-Jacques Cartier.

Cartier London Dials: Another constant theme was to create a very clean dial usually free of the traditional Chemin-de-Fer. They also focused on the positioning of radial Roman numerals which were often larger, and a distinctive Cartier signature in script. The white dial of this Maxi Ronde is a perfect example of Cartier London design.

Maxi Ronde: Louis Cartier most favoured design for gentleman’s watches was an angular or square shape as exemplified by the many variations of the Tank and Santos models. The Ronde was featured rarely and records show that a similar watch to the Maxi Ronde but with obvious Vendôme lugs, was launched in 1945. Louis Cartier in 1934 had patented a new style of lug known as the Vendôme and the patent was allowed to lapse post 1949. Cartier Paris finally introduced the Cartier Vendôme watch around 1973 marketed as a tribute to the eponymous Parisian square, a meeting place for jewellers and watchmakers. The two lugs evoke the two streets leading to Place Vendôme: rue de la Paix and rue de Castiglione. This possibly explains why the design created by Cartier London had a very short life span. Possibly only 2-4 were ever made. We know on acquiring Cartier London, Cartier Paris wished to re-establish the dominance of the Paris company. This resulted in a certain amount of friction in London and from contemporary writings we know that Cartier London designed watches were discontinued and any unsold watches were offered to the existing staff at Cartier London. The W&D watch making workshop reverted to it’s pre 1965 days making a very small number of cases to original Paris designs before being finally closed in 1979.

Vendôme lugs: Jean-Jacques Cartier and Rupert Emmerson adapted the original design and positioned them so the were “hidden” lugs. Except for the Pebble, all their wonderful new designs used this “hidden” lug design. An imaginative way of combining an element of a Louis Cartier design with the new design concepts by Cartier London.

In 2015, Patek Philippe introduced a collection of watches for its London boutique to celebrate Patek’s 175th Anniversary which coincided with their Grand Exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery. This Calatrava London Edition, reference 5089G-040, was part of the collection on display at the Grand Exhibition and offered for sale in a very limited production of only 10 pieces. The reference 5089G is reserved for Patek Philippe’s artisans as its size and classic design makes the perfect template and frame allowing the dial take centre stage. This falls under Patek Philippe’s Handcrafts department which caters for special orders and limited editions typically featuring enamel or engraved dials depicting different scenes, famous landmarks, animals and even a surfer (released in 2024). This 2015 London Monuments Edition depicts a captivating view gracing the Thames skyline featuring Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, London Eye and the Gherkin. All of these famous London Monuments are beautifully handcrafted in grisaille enamel, a process whereby the artist meticulously applies multiple layers of different colour enamels to create shading and depth.

The original owner of this watch was First Assistant Film Director Patrick Clayton who worked predominantly in film over a career spanning six decades. Patrick Clayton’s work as third and second AD went mostly uncredited, including on the likes of Oliver! and Where Eagles Dare (both 1968), with his first named credit coming with his 17th film, The Syndicate (1968). He was then credited as first AD or AD for Twins of Evil (1971), Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981), Gorillas in the Mist (1988), Shadowlands (1993), Interview with the Vampire (1994), Michael Collins (1996), Event Horizon (1997), The End of the Affair (1999) and City of Ember (2008). He also worked as a production manager with credits on Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines (1965), The Keep (1983) and 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992).

This watch is accompanied by original photographs of Patrick Clayton wearing the watch, the original Garrard sales receipt and a signed letter of provenance from his son. The watch is being sold with original photographs of Patrick Clayton on set alongside actors he worked with including Clint Eastwood, Richard Attenborough, Ralph Fiennes, Julianne Moore, David Niven, Max Von Sydow and others. It also comes with Patrick Clayton’s original screenplay from White Hunter, Black Heart (1989) and letters from Winkast Film Productions for “Where Eagles Dare” and Hawk Films for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey.
