Carrera y Carrera is a large Madrid jeweler with 125 years of experience. The Carrera company has produced various pieces of jewelry for the Spanish Royal Family and their close friends, and it is the only brand to have done so to date. Similar to Cartier and Tiffany, they also offer their own brand of superior watches.
The Carrera wristwatch showcased in today's offering is a striking example of one of their unique pieces. Housed in a case with special titanium bezel - a metal that is extremely difficult to work with - with horse sculptured horses and solid 18K gold accents, this "Equestrian" watch showcases a high-fashion luxury style.
We were fortunate to acquire it in mint original untouched condition. The watch itself presents as 9.8 or 9.9 out of 10. It still has its original protective sticker on the case back. The original band shows only light wear and has its original buckle.
Accompanying it is its original box.
A Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing and installed a new battery.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
