Realized in fully 18k yellow gold and preserved in very good conditions, its peculiarities are various: first of all the use of a cylindrical case with large bezel that creates an oval shape where is located the dial. Moreover, the fancy lugs with “top-hat” shape area never-seen detail for any other Cartier watch and a touch class when wrap on someones wrist. The champagne dial has the over mentioned oval shape with black, long, baton indexes, sward hands and Cartier signature of minimal and geometric essence.
