Cartier Vintage Reverso White Gold 1949 EWC
A truly outstanding watch under all aspects: this is a grail watch for Cartier and JLC Reverso collectors! A great collaboration of the two brands incorporating the luxury of precious metal with the utility of the classic Polo sports watch design. Made for the Cartier London boutique and confirmed in their archives to be a December 1949 production this watch is in exceptional conditions and ready for a world class collection.
The 18k white gold case measuring 23 x33 mm, with London hallmarks and patent pending British engravings is in overall super sharp conditions with defined edges, the case back is stamped European Watch Clock Co. The case cabriolet cover turns smoothly and closes flush.
The original dial with Cartier signature and Swiss at 6 is in overall pristine conditions along with the applied gold markers and hand set.
The EWC movement is clean and winding smooth, running well.
On leather strap that will fit a 7 inch wrist and later Cartier New York 18k gold bi color folding buckle.
A fantastic watch indeed!
