Other market leaders included Cartier , which developed the Santos in 1904 for aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont—he wanted a watch he could wear on his wrist while flying. The Cartier Tank was developed around World War I. These were the market leaders. Cartier was actually pretty important in the development of the wristwatch. Tiffany was a large retailer but was much less important as an innovator. Cartier is unique in many ways. It is for instance one of the very few brands that has a very rich collection of models in the twenties that are still in their current line up.
While Patek Philippe invented the wrist-watch in 1868, it was traditionally worn by women. It was Louis Cartier who started the trend for men’s wrist-watches in 1904. It was at the request of Alberto Santons-Dumont, a famous early aviator who asked Cartier for a watch that could be used easily during flight. While Cartier uses movements from Swiss watchmakers today, in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Cartier name was as renowned for their haute horology as it was for their haute jewellery.

The perpetual calendar wristwatch was first introduced by Patek Philippe in 1925. This classic watch displays the month, day of the week, and phases of the moon, details that watch collectors adore. One of these Patek Philippe watches is featured in our upcoming Fine Jewelry auction with an estimate of $20,000 to $30,000. Hope you enjoyed this showcase of these antique pocket watches!

That movement was the 1904 MC. A thin caliber automatic that had 48 hours of power reserve with a rotor set of ceramic ball bearings. It was rather nicely decorated, too. Functionally, it has the time with a subsidiary seconds dial and the date. Cartier made sure that it had enough differences in comparison to most of the base movements offered by ETA. You can see the movement via the sapphire caseback window on the back of the watch.
