Cartier: The jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers. There are few names in the world of high watchmaking and high jewelry that attract admiration more than Cartier. Founded by Louis-François Cartier in Paris in 1847, the legendary firm, from its beginnings, has been associated with exquisite craftsmanship and classic, sophisticated elegance. The present watch is an absolute rarity in terms of design and style for its unusal decagonal shape of the case fully made in yellow gold. The winding crown leaves the classic cabochon and the dial is very minimal in the classic Cartier style with Mat silver color, back roman numerals and Blued steel hands. Sold with the original London deployant buckle from the period.
