Cartier and the female world are an indissoluble pair in the field of jewelry, but also in the watchmaking sector the Parisian brand has created numerous iconic pieces. Specifically, this Mini Bagnoire model is an example of absolute elegance with its platinum smooth case enriched with ruby cabochon. The dial has a waved guillochè decoration and, most of all, rare and beautiful red paintings: from the signature, passing through the minutes track till finishing with the roman numerals with secret signature at VII, the whole composition is simply amazing.
