The pull out octagonal winding crown is set with blue sapphire cabochon, and the exhibition sapphire case back is secured with 8 screws, and there are two more screws in both sides of the case band. Engraved around the polished perimeter is "CARTIER – 2688 – SWISS MADE – WATER RESISTANT," a serial number, and three hallmarks. The 34mm by 43mm solid thwo-body barrel-shaped tonneau case, slightly curved screwed lugs, and rounded art-deco bezel are polished. The dial is guilloche silver with painted black Roman numeral hour markers outside a concentric railway-style minute scale, with the secret Cartier signature at VII o'clock. It has a Breguet-style combination of blued sword/pomme hands, and there is a three-date radial big date arch aperture window at the 12 o'clock position. There is a fan-shaped 40-hour power reserve subsidiary dial at 6 o'clock. It's water resistant to 30 meters/100 feet, and the 11mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.
