Created in 1967 in *Swinging London*, the Crash watch expresses the sparkling, carefree spirit of an era that was all about complete freedom. The unlikely design of this watch could only have been conceived by Cartier, the great maker of shaped watches. Passionate and in touch with the spirit of the times, it sought to create a unique watch that would capture the joyous burst of rebellion and pop culture that shook up the conformism of the time.
