When I saw that Elton John had a perfect replica Cartier Crash, I thought to myself, of course, Elton John has a luxury fake Cartier Crash. It’s so perfect. If I rattled off a few descriptors – bold, expressive, surreal, born in London – they could apply to Sir Elton just as much as the cheap super clone Cartier Crash. Sure, it’s still one of the hottest watches in the world, but I imagine, as was typically the case, John was ahead of the curve.
Sir Elton’s Crash is from the UK 1:1 replica Cartier Paris 1991 limited edition run of 400, a slightly smaller take on the Crash compared to the original London examples. Christie’s has an estimate of $70,00–$100,000 on Sir Elton’s aaa quality fake Cartier Crash, but given that the price for a standard Paris UK Swiss movement replica Cartier Crash is about 2x that estimate, no doubt it’ll surpass that estimate.
