As a creative designer and a pioneer in horology, most of the watches produced by Cartier over the years have always been amazed by its ability to totally break the mold with the aesthetic standards of the period in which they were designed. This happened with the Santos Dumont, the Tank, the Tortue and with the Tonneau. Also the field of jewelry watches has been variously explored and during a time when the watch industry knew nothing but round timepieces, Cartier was able to give birth to some really amazing pieces. The present watch jewel here offered is an example of high-level craftsmanship. This wristwatch is equipped with the Duo-Plan movement and has been produced in the 1930s by LeCoultre. Its classic structure makes it a perfect accessory for a lady’s wrist. The rectangular yellow-gold case firmed LeCoultre enclose a beautiful and clean silver dial with Roman numerals and blued steel hands. This lot is completed by its yellow gold integrated elaborated bracelet and it is a perfect accessory for a female wrist.
