Bueche Girod Vintage Maxi Oval Baignoire
A freaking sensational watch this Bueche Girod (American Cartier enthusiasts best kept secret) a clone of the Maxi Oval sold by Cartier in the late 60s early 70s, Bueche Girod was one of the makers for Cartier New York 5th avenue of the era.
The 18k gold case measuring a staggering 29 x 56mm is in pleasing conditions retaining its thick and ribbed bezel sharp along with extreme curvature of the case and clean case back.
The dial with it’s exploded painted roman numerals is in mint conditions.
The manual wind Bueche Girod movement is winding smooth and running well.
On generic strap and gold tone buckle.
A really exciting watch with a million dollar look (some colleagues of mine are audacious enough to ask $250k for the Cartier version) for a super value and really a pleasure to wear and enjoy!
