Cartier’s creation are known all over the world among passionates and aficionados for its squared and rectangular shapes. Round watches have not been explored too much by the Parisian brand and those produced represent a category of classic timepieces that provides its wearer with an especial taste of both tradition and innovation. The lot here offered is a striking example of Large Ronde coming from the 1950’s. The Stepped case in yellow gold with cylindrical lugs and recessed sapphire cabochon presents a stepped bezel and is notably preserved after all these years. The matte silver dial has an outer minutes track, roman arabic numerals and a thin circle to give more geometrical elegance to the whole structure.
