A rare and fascinating item from the Art Deco era, this Movado for Cartier clock features both an ingenious design and the lasting quality that is synonymous with the Cartier name. Utilizing the “ermeto” design patented and marketed in 1926 by watchmaker Movado, this high polish yellow gold clock features a ribbed pattern case in a small pillow-shape that slides open when gently pulled on either end. As the clock opens, the sliding action winds the movement and reveals a silver-toned dial with gold enameled numbers and luminous hands. The front of the clock features the monogram “JS” in blue enamel, and the clock features both Cartier and Movado hallmarks. Dial signed Cartier. There is some wear as well as a minor dent at one corner consistent with the age of the clock.
