This Watch

We have here a Cartier Ronde with an original tri-colour dial and Vendôme lugs in vermeil from the 1990s.  The watch has all the features of that classic Cartier style but with added tri-colour detailing: Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o'clock, railway-style minute tracking inside the tri-colour accents, blue steel hands and cabochon winding crown.  We particularly love the articulated, Vendôme lugs which add an extra touch of elegance and sophistication.

 

The vermeil case, also known as silver gilt, or gold-plated sterling silver, measures 24mm and is a very comfortable wear on the wrist.  This smaller size makes it the perfect watch for ladies.  Inside the case is the Swiss quartz caliber 81, fully serviced by us and running strongly.  We've paired this watch on a white leather strap to bring out the tri-colour dial but it looks great on black and brown too.  The watch comes with a Cartier-style buckle.

Extra Points 

The 'Must De' Cartier concept was first introduced around 1973 when the Cartier lighter became the must-have accessory.  Cartier branched out from jewellery to pens, leather goods, fragrances and more affordable watches.  One of the main ways they transformed their designs way by making them out of vermeil, or silver gilt, which is gold-plated sterling silver. This made the watches more affordable whilst still having the prestige of being made from a precious metal. Various sizes, dial colours and finishes were then produced for both men and women. The Must de Cartier line was faded out at the beginning of the 21st century.

The watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with our 12 months, non-waterproof service cover.


What we think

We love Cartier here at AWC.  It is a brand that offers timeless elegance across all of its watches, yet never fails to produce a variety of adaptations in its classic designs.  This is a timepiece sized for a more petite/ladies wrist.
