OverviewThis is a stunning Cartier Ceinture ladies watch - one of my favourite Cartier vintage watches - dating from the early 1970s and completely unworn. I am selling the watch for Ralph Warburton, a customer of mine, who bought the watch new from the Cartier shop in the Peninsular hotel Hong Kong for his wife in the early 1970s. The watch was a 10th anniversary gift but she never wore the watch due to it being too small for her. It has been stored in a drawer ever since. The watch is therefore in mint vintage condition, with very minor storage wear - a very special 'one owner' find with wonderful provenance.
The watch features solid 18ct gold stepped case, original winding crown, mint Cartier dial and a clean, freshly serviced hand-wound Cartier 17 jewel movement. It comes complete with its original Cartier crocodile strap and original Cartier solid 18ct gold folding clasp. It will be posted in its original Cartier watch box, with its original Cartier document holder and papers. The watch makes a beautiful statement on the wrist, something a bit different with a history, and will only rise in value. The watch is even better in reality than photographed so I know someone is going to be very pleased to receive it.
