Cartier: The jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers. There are few names in the world of high watchmaking and high jewelry that attract admiration more than Cartier. From its foundation in 1847, the legendary firm, from its beginnings, has been associated with exquisite craftsmanship and classic, sophisticated elegance. The present watch is a nice specimen of Cartier Ellipse family: realized in 18k white gold with stepped bezel, it has been preserved in very nice conditions with still the original Cartier deployant in white gold. The big cabochon at 3 o’clock centralizes the gaze for its oversize dimensions and beauty while the creamy-white dial attracts for its essentiality with black Roman numbers and minutes track.
