Years ago...when Cartier Singapore had a beautiful watch, and I had not the $$$ to buy it. I was invited to see it, remember that this was the time when watches were not at all advertised.
Impossible to understand today, how any magazine can have no watch adverts.
Anyway, we were "poorer" then...although there was a Mercedes 320 24v in back of the photographer!
Struggling to pay for it.
This cloisonne object was retailed for $70,000 sgd at Ngee Ann Cartier.
Here it is today....do not guess where it resides, but it is in Singapore.
