Cartier Collection Privée (CPCP) 2553 Wandering Hour
The Cartier Tank a Vis Wandering Hour Collection Privee was introduced in 2000 and was sold only at the Cartier Paris Place Vendome boutique. The Wandering Hours is an extremely unusual complication with a central minute hand and two separate apertures to display the hours and date. This is not a jump hour because the hours and date move smoothly and can be set both forward and backwards. This model is rarely available in the secondary market.
This 18k yellow gold Cartier Tank a Vis Wandering Hour Collection Privee is in amazing condition. It includes an alligator leather strap with an 18k gold deployant buckle and curved scratch resistant sapphire crystals. It further comes with box and instructions booklet.
It has an octagonal pull-out winding crown set with a sapphire cabochon and an exhibition sapphire display crystal case back secured with 8 screws and engraved with “CARTIER – SWISS MADE – 750 – WATER RESISTANT – 2553.
The 28mm by 40.5mm massive two-body rectangular tonneau case, curved screwed lugs, and curved flat bezel with four corner face screws, are polished/brushed. It includes a blued white gold Cartier sword minute hand, and a silver sunray rose-center guilloche dial with an off-center square railway-style minute scale with black Arabic numerals every five minutes to 60.
