Cartier Vendôme gold vintage wristwatch, circa 1975
An 18ct yellow gold circular wristwatch with a red Cartier presentation case
The Vendôme is a most attractively designed wristwatch which dispenses with the traditional arrangement of extended lugs, thereby allowing the pure circle of the case to be interrupted only by the ends of the strap. The white dial is a signature Cartier configuration with black Roman numerals and blued steel sword shaped hands, known as epée. Cased in 18ct yellow gold, the colouring is rich and warm in tone and provides excellent contrast to the dial and hands.
This watch is accompanied by a modern red Cartier fitted presentation case and the watch has been fitted with a handmade, Christopher Clarke for Black Bough, black lizard leather strap.
