Cartier Vintage Gondole Automatique
A lovely watch for him or for her truly embodying the spirit of a Cartier wristwatch: a tasteful understated precious accessory to tell time in the most unassuming yet discerned way.
This Gondole reference is interesting because it’s a mid size yet hosts an automatic movement reserved for the Jumbo models, made in the late 70s / early 80s it’s a rare watch that hardly comes up for sale.
The 18k gold case measuring 26 x 31mm is in nice pleasing conditions retaining it’s defined edges and sharp engravings on back.
The Paris signed dial is in overall nice conditions with well preserved enamel background void of cracks and hidden Cartier signature at 7, some patina at the center pinion. The painted roman numerals are in excellent conditions along with the blue steel “tie shape” hand set.
The automatic Cartier movement is running well.
On crocodile strap that will fit 5.75 inch wrist and original 18k gold Cartier deployant buckle. (new strap to fit can be ordered).
A nice watch indeed!
