A Check From Clark Gable To Cartier, Circa 1948
click to enlargeOne of my favorite parts of SIHH this year wasn’t a watch, it was actually the window display of Cartier. They put on a really interesting (and beautiful) exhibit of the Cartier Tank throughout the years (we’re going to show you much it in the coming weeks). But, one of the cooler items on display with this check above – written from Mr. Clark Gable to Cartier, North America on October 18, 1948.You have to wonder, what cost Mr. Gable $18.36 back then?
