Shown here is a vintage 1930s lift arm lighter by Cartier. The lighter has black enamel covering the whole lighter. Some of the enamel has broken off. The lighter measures 44.2 mm high by 33 mm wide by 12.23mm thick ( 15.55 across the lift arm piece ). When these lighters were first made they also often had a watch incorporated on the side, as wrist watches were not in use yet. In the 1930 and later you see pieces as this one without the watch added. The lighter is signed CARTIER on the refill cap and a number 059 or C59 at the bottom of it. It is faint but can still be seen with magnification. On the front of this lighter there is a small decorative piece made of white gold and set with small rose cut diamonds. There is also a cabochon ruby with one missing.
I FINALLY got a custom-made deployant buckle from Igor, 18K WG with my choice of engraving, and I was THRILLED with the result — prompt, honest, courteous service. I recommend him without reservation.
I bought 2 watches from Igor over the past 6 months and it is a pleasure to deal with him. Igor is knowledgeable, accepts all questions and always replies quickly. I recommend him for sure
Just completed a deal on a 1680 as an international buyer with Igor at www.afinewatch.com . He maintained great communications, had a polite and informed manner and came through with a nice watch for the cash I paid. A trustworthy guy…….!
Just completed a deal with Igor, and may I say It couldn’t have gone smoother. Delivery from the US to the UK was simply stunning. Have no worries dealing with this gentleman.
Completed a very smooth transatlantic deal with Igor. he goes the extra mile for his customers,very professional. kind regards.
Igor is good as gold ( no pun intended, well maybe a little one)
I recently purchased a gold GMT from Igor and both the watch and communication with Igor were top notch.
no issues with Igor.
Have bought 1803, Bubbleback and WG 18239, all working well.
Great communication, reliable and dependable.
