Cartier Paris 'Mystere' Desk Clock


Inspired by the 19th century French magician and illusionist Jean Eugene Robert-Houdini, this Cartier Paris 'Mystere' desk clock gives the appearance of a floating dial which magically disappears at certain angles due to its two inner lead prisms. Designed of silver plated bronze with graphic blue simulated lapis lazuli panels, this handsome and iconic timepiece will become your one and only invisible treasure. Quartz. Serial #91180250. Circa 1980. 3 1/2" W X 3" D X 4" H.
