In the course of years, many versions of this model were released such as the Anglaise, Française, Louis Cartier, MC or Solo. One of the most appreciated is, anyway, the Américaine, exactly like the present lot offered. This specimen is even more desirable not only for the yellow-gold case preserved in notable conditions and the original 18k gold deployant but mainly for the decoration on the bezel where 13 diamonds of different dimensions for each side embellish the watch. The dial has the classical Cartier design with argentè background, inner closed track for minutes and outer Roman numerals.
