Since 1898, Cartier’s skill and craftmanship in the creation of timepieces have proven to fundamental for special wristwatches. Always ahead of its time and eager to experiment with innovative shapes, Cartier gave birth to the Gouvernail, named this way for its design similar to a rudder. The present Round Squelette has a very nice and extremely well-preserved case in white gold with the iconic 12 outer “indexes” for the hours. The dial is perfectly geometric with outer minutes scale and Roman numerals while at 12 and 6 o’clock are present the signatures Cartier and France. Further preciousness is the original deployant of the Parisian brand. The present watch is published on the book “White—Cartier—Bianco” by Osvaldo Patrizzi at page 46.
