Vintage Mens Cartier Ellipse Gold Manual Wind 78-1 Serviced, Unpolished

$3,980.00

 

This watch comes with everything seen in the photos including the original box, papers and everything else seen in the photos. 

Available for sale is a gentleman's 18k Yellow Gold Cartier Golden Ellipse. This watch features a stunning porcelain-like white dia with black roman numbers. This to me embodies the classic Cartier look. The circular Cartier Ellipse watches are simply far more attractive and balanced over the horizontally elongated cases. The movement is a 17 Jewel 78-1 which has been recently serviced and is running +11 Seconds per day. The case shows light signs of previous wear though we decided to leave the watch unpolished. The watch comes with everything seen in the photos. We also have a ladies version of this watch, if you would like to own a his and hers please contact us and we can provide you with the eBay link to our other auction!

Case: 33 mm 18K Yellow gold Gold case, unpolished though does show signs of light previous wear, no distractions to mention. Although 33mm, the watch really feels match larger due to the stepped design of the case.

Dial/Hands: Original porcelain-like white dial which is in perfect original condition, no distractions. The dial has not been touched up in any way. Many of these vintage dials discolour, chip or crack over time. This particular piece has really stood the test of time! Please note some of the angles may look like there is break in the design of the chapter ring, that said this is only the photos, as the dial is perfect as the day it left the factory! Hands are original and attractive, they are blue and really stand out in the ever changing light.

Caseback: Nice condition original 18K Yellow gold case back with all correct Cartier markings. There are signs of previous wear

Movement: Manual winding calibre 78-1. It has been serviced by our watchmaker and is currently running + 11 second per day.  

Bracelet/Strap: Vintage brown leather strap with gold plated Cartier style buckle.

Crystal: Original crystal with with one scratch at 4pm
