Today's offering showcases this mens Roadster XL Chronograph that presents in 9.8 out 10 condition. It is gift quality and almost indistinguishable from new without close inspection. Roadsters were one of Cartier's hottest watches and have been discontinued, and this gorgeous example is available for a fraction of the retail price.
It comes complete with boxes and open (not yet filled in) papers - a full set.
It is a large watch with impressive stance on the wrist - it measures almost 43mm wide by 48mm long.
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any worn components with new Cartier parts, reassembling and lubricating the movement, replacing all of the waterproofing seals with new Cartier gaskets, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $695 value).

Cartier Roadster line:
Celebrated for their impeccable quality and flawless designs, Cartier watches rank among the most luxurious and expensive in the world. Worn by Bill Clinton, Elton John, and Djimon Hounsou, the company's watches have long been favorites of royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and any gentleman desiring to wear a timepiece of distinction.
Inspired by vintage 1950's and 1960's automobiles, the Cartier Roadster is modern yet classic. Strong, sleek, and sculpted it showcases the passion and spirit of motor racing. With its voluptuous lines and proportions and well-balanced architecture it beautifully marries steely strength with artistic grace. And powered by a unique automatic mechanism with "Roadster" emblazoned oscillating weight, the watch dramatically showcases the timeless art of traditional watchmaking.
