Louis Cartier initiated a creative approach to timepieces. In 1904, pocket watches were the norm. One time, an aviator complained to Cartier that it was awkward to try to pull out a pocket watch to check the time while flying. Cartier designed a small, flat timepiece that could be strapped to the wrist. Thus the Santos wristwatch was born and quickly became a hit with Cartier’s many customers. Collecting watches doesn’t start suddenly, like collecting stamps or coins. Most people think about collecting after meeting others with the same interest, as for instance seeing people at watch auctions or talking to collectors at ‘Get togethers’ organized by watch enthusiasts.

Ask any serious watch collector and they will generally include the Speedmaster on their list of all-time favorite watches for a number of reasons. For the truly obsessed, the Speedmaster Professional model to collect is the calibre321 from 1967 –the exact model worn during the Apollo 11 mission. However, the immediate successor to this model is what we’re talking about here, and they began production in 1968. Visually, the321 and861 calibres are nearly identical, so unless you get obsessive you’d be hard pressed to tell them apart.

The Calibre is deceptively large. Seeing it in a store window I would bet money it was larger than its 42mm wide size might suggest. Thanks to a hefty crown guard and large, widely spaced lugs this watch is one of the best optical illusions around. Thanks to the lugs allowing the bottom to wrap around your wrist, this watch is quite comfortable to wear and in addition to that, the piece does not have a tall profile. B.

Like the sales people at Cartier and Tiffany, I highly doubt your jeweler can tell the difference between a real 70’s Cartier movement that would have been used in your watch and a fake. I can’t, and I have been a watchmaker and watch dealer for over 20 years.
