Jewel watches represent a small but significant part of the history of watchmaking. 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. The here offered bracelet watch for lady is a bald and fine creation made in yellow gold and elegantly preserved. Despite being a jewel watch, this model can also be worn in the everyday life thanks to its craftmanship with linked edges decoration gives a nostalgic look while being extremely comfortable to wear. The conservation of this lot is definitely notable and the alternation between the gold of the structure and the massive blue of the lapis lazuli hardstone gives life to an absolutely exceptional effect. Moreover the dial is surrounded by a circle of brilliant-cut diamond set making it a jewel for every woman.
