Cartier Pebble-Shaped ‘Baseball’ Watch is Back for an Ultra-Limited Run

Cartier re-releases the extremely rare Pebble for the model’s 50th anniversary.

First appearing from Cartier’s London-based workshop in 1972, the Pebble, or “Baseball” as it’s called in the US, combines a diamond-shaped dial with a round case. Only six pieces of the larger 35.4 mm variation are known to exist – five in yellow gold with cream dials and one in white gold with a black dial. 

The new Pebble watch carries the same basic design and functionality as the original 1972 edition, featuring a 36mm 18k gold pebble-shaped case with a gold and blue crown and a square eggshell-colored dial. The dial comes wtih classic black Roman numerals and blue sword-shaped hands. Finishing off the watch is a classic light brown calfskin strap with a gold pin buckle.

Minor dial modifications include the addition of Cartier’s “secret signature” at seven o’clock and its modern logo at 12.

One key upgrade for the newest iteration of the Cartier Pebble is Cartier’s ultra-thin, manual Caliber 430 MC movement, also known as the Piaget 430P, in place of the original Jaeger-LeCoultre manual mechanism. At only 2.1mm, the hand-wound movement runs at 3Hz and stores a power reserve of 40 hours.

The 2022 Cartier Pebble ref. CRWGPB0003 is limited to only 150 units, retailing for about $44,700. The collector’s watch will be available starting in November.
