Before cost-cutting measures brought about the widespread use of quartz movements for certain wristwatches, Cartier utilized Swiss-crafted mechanical movements. Using centuries old watchmaking practices, craftsmen poured individual attention into each wristwatch.
In vintage times the company made two distinct types of wristwatches - those signed Cartier throughout with major components made by different Cartier contractors and others that were complete watches created especially for Cartier by another premier watchmaker, such as Jaeger-LeCoultre, Piaget, or Concord Watch Co. Such is the case with this Cartier especially made for the firm by Concord.
Today's offering showcases this beautiful original Certified Pre-Owned vintage ladies solid gold Cartier.
Its design elements are easily recognized as Cartier: A timeless 14K gold case, a classic original white Roman dial, and a sapphire topped crown.
Its fine Concord for Cartier handwound mechanism is a miniature model of Swiss precision.
It is all original down to the buckle and presents on the wrist in very pleasing condition. Its case is in excellent condition and still retains all of its original Cartier registration number on it. Its dial is untouched and just short of perfect mint.
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components with new Cartier parts, reassembling and lubricating the movement, and extensive timing testing and regulation making it ready for immediate enjoyment (a $445 value).
We have timed it in five chronometer positions, and it continues to keep very accurate time.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new aftermarket lizard strap like the original and the watch's original buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
