There are two versions of the watch that have the same general appearance, but are to some extent different since they include differing case sizes and materials, different color of the hands, as well as of some of the accents featured on the dial. The differences are not just superficial, but also regarding the used caliber. However, this is simply caused by the dimensions of the square cases. Two utilized movements have the same general characteristics and functions – the calibers in question are self-winding mechanical movements. Moreover, they and are both with ETA base movements and have the frequency of 28,800 vph.

An independent watchmaker in England popularized something called the coaxial escapement, which he used in a very limited production of expensive pocket and wristwatches. But then Omega patented the design and is still using it in its wristwatches today. It doesn’t require lubrication. I think they had some problems with it developmentally, but now they’re over that, and it’s supposed to be pretty reliable. These two details are a handhold to recognize pieces from the now retired ‘Collection Privée’ series, since only a few pieces did not have the rosette or were not individually numbered.

Some of the famous watch models include the Tonneau 1906, Tank 1910, and Tortue 1912. These timepieces were continuously manufactured even past the death of Louis in 1942. Subsequently, the Baignoire 1957, Panthere 1983 and the Pasha Cartier 1985 were launched. The Tank Francaise and the Privee collection were produced more recently in 1996. The timepieces became so popular that it developed a large following of women who considered the watch more of a jeweled accessory and a fashion statement. Louis Cottier, the Geneva watchmaker who made this 14k world time wristwatch for Agassiz in 1945, produced only 13 watches per year.
