Among its innovative styles, the Tonneau case has been explored in many ways and versions during its over 110 years of history and the present lot is one of the nicest aver seen with its well-preserved yellow gold case and with “officier”-type screwed lugs. The massive case screwed bars, cabochon sapphire – set winding crowns and domed sapphire crystal strikes for its conditions and quality. Perfectly elegant on the wrist, this watch is sold with the original yellow gold Cartier buckle.
