A watch that has all the flavor of vintage the Tonneau by Cartier is one of the classic looks from the maison going strong for over 120 years!
Here we have it in it’s early 90s iteration, rediscovered after years of not being produced since the 60s, it’s execution is superb.
The 18k yellow gold case measuring 28 x 37mm is in sharp defined conditions being unpolished and having devel0ped some purple oxidation in certain spots. The defined edges and facets along with the curvature of the case are prominent and a pleasure on the wrist. The case back engravings are deep and sharp.
The guilloche’ finish dial is in attractive conditions with no stains (seen on most of these reference) and some dust under the crystal that can be removed. The Paris signature is attractive. The blue steel hand set is mint.
The manual wind Cartier movement is running well, keeping time.
On Cartier strap and Ardillon plated buckle.
