Designed by Gerald Genta, the cult classic was created from a 1930s water-resistant replica watch created by Louis Cartier to accompany the Pasha of Marrakesh on his daily swims. The model features a non-conformist round case with a square rail track in the dial’s centre, Arabic numerals, Vendome-style bars with Clous de Paris at the ends, and screw-down cover over a crown fitted with a blue spinel.
The dial flaunts a stamped guilloche motif and an ever-so-slight dégradé effect on its edges. Visible via a transparent caseback is the automatic calibre 1847 MC designed in the Cartier manufacture. Personalised engraving in the form of initials can be done at the back of the case or under the crown cover.
