Dover Street Market

Good news for watch collectors and timepiece enthusiasts: Dover Street Market has just teamed up with London legend Harry Fane to offer a selection of vintage Cartier watches.

For those unfamiliar, Harry Fane set up the private London gallery Obsidian in 1978 to deal vintage Cartier and objets d'art. Today the collector has bought and sold some of the rarest creations from Cartier's "golden years" – the 1920's and 1930's – and is an authority in his field, and is a commission expert.

For a lucky few with a whole lot of money, six vintage Cartier watches by Harry Fane are currently available for purchase online at Dover Street Market's website, with the cheapest one retailing at £10,320 (approximately $14,200).

As for the timepieces available, the selection includes a Tank Gondole in 18kt yellow gold and a black leather strap dating back to the 1970s, a 1970's Cabriolet in 18kt gold, a rare Cartier/Piaget Tank dating 1971-2, a luxury Diamond Tank from 1980, a 1960s Tank Cornice also in 18kt gold, and lastly a Ceinture with a rare two-colored gold case dated 1970.

The unique watches are rare and nearly impossible to come by, and each piece also comes with an optional bespoke strap, which is made to order upon purchase. Of course, each of the timepieces also comes with documentation with details across every aspect, from movement to engravings.

If you're looking to splurge on a vintage watch, perhaps now is your time. The Harry Fane edit is currently live on the Dover Street Market website as well as in-store at DSM London, with one watch already sold. If you've got a bunch of money to spend, a watch is never a bad investment – at least not when they've been collected by Harry Fane.
