If you’ve never heard of Collection Privée, let me fill you in. Beginning in 1998, Cartier began to produce more involved takes on existing designs to satisfy the increasingly demanding tastes of astute collectors. The jeweler and watchmaker’s response was more than sufficient, as evidenced by their partnerships with Jaeger-LeCoultre, Frédéric Piguet, Piaget, Girard-Perregaux, and APRP to manufacture movements. Such partnerships yielded watches like this Piaget Cal. 430 MC-powered Ronde Solo which, like the rest of the collection, was made in France and featured the word “PARIS” on its dial.
