From the timeless Santos to the ethereal Ballon Bleu to the exquisite Maillon, Cartier has created a plethora of original fine watches for both man and women over the years. The Vendome reference 2220 here offered is one of these bald creations which saw life in the 1990s. The three body case has been realized in 18k yellow gold and preserved in extremely fine conditions with its iconic and unusual stepped band, rounded bezel and Vendome type lugs. The peculiarity of this watch is indeed the absence of a separated deployant that is instead located directly between the lugs and under the case making this model an extravagant yet elegant design. The silver guilloché dial with painted radial Roman numerals, Cartier secret signature on one of the X strokes is untouched and perfectly conserved in all these years.
