In vintage times no name better captured the idea of embracing the best life had to offer than that of Cartier. One of the company's select offerings to their discriminating female clients was a line of bracelet-watches emblazoned with the Cartier name on the dial. Although the maker's name were often hidden, the retailer contracted with a number of the world's very fine watch and jewelry making firms to produce these treasured timepieces.
The exclusive, lady's wristwatch featured in today's offering dramatically illustrates why these special watches are sought-after by women of distinction and any woman desiring to wear a world-class timepiece.
Elegantly crafted from 18K gold, the wonderful case and bracelet are done in a bamboo style design. They have a timeless yet distinctive vintage aura.
In addition to watch's beautiful aesthetics, the fine original handwound GIrard Perregaux movement insures that the watch's timekeeping will meet the expectations of the discerning owners.
We are proud to offer it in gorgeous restored condition. The case and bracelet present as mint, indicative of a watch worn with respect for its rarity and value. The Cartier dial has been meticulously restored by one of the leading dial experts in North America.
We have cleaned and oiled the movement, which is keeping very accurate time.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
Worn by Jennifer Aniston, Anna Wintour, and the late Princess Diana, the company's watches have long been favorites of women desiring to wear a watch of distinction.
