Today's showcases this scarce, pleasing, and uncommon vintage mens midsize Cartier dress watch.
It is original with a Cartier traditional classic white Roman dial and cabochon sapphire crown. As a mens midsize it is well suited for a man with smaller wrists or for a woman.
Powering the watch is its original Cartier handwound mechanism that is better finished and a little higher grade than the ones often found in Cartier's dress watches like the Tank.
Before cost-cutting measures brought about the widespread use of cheaper quartz movements for certain wristwatches, Cartier utilized Swiss-crafted mechanical movements. Because of this extra care and craftsmanship, Cartier wristwatches with mechanical movements are often considered more desirable than their quartz counterparts.
It is original down to the dial, hands, and crown, and our watchmaker has just freshly cleaned and oiled the movement. It continues to run at extremely accurate levels.
For the finishing touch we have installed a brand new crocodile strap.
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 attesting to its performance.
Worn by Bill Clinton, Elton John, and Djimon Hounsou, Cartier watches have long been favorites of royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and any gentleman desiring to wear a timepiece of distinction.
