Pierre Cardin CS1933

Today's watch is one from another of the famous designer brands.

This model is one of the watches from the Pierre Cardin watch collection. Pierre Cardin is an Italian-born French fashion designer. He is most know for his space age designs and geometric shapes, and is also a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador. His fashion experience started in the 1940s and he worked with Christian Dior before forming his own fashion house in 1950.

This watch is a 3 hand dial design with a model number of CS1933. It is a Swiss made watch with a gold and silver design and a white face with gold hour markers. Inside is a Swiss Ronda metal quartz movement with one jewel (and is the second one of these which has stopped working on me).

This model number doesn't appear in any of the searches I've tried, so I don't know when it is from, but it definitely isn't current (and I'd guess late 90s).
