Cartier Gondole 18K Gold Oversized circa 1973 Rare and Fabulous!


A rare and impressive looking Cartier Gondole 18K YG man’s model circa 1973. Very scarce and distinctive model featuring large 34 x 39mm tonneau shaped case with pronounced contoured steps. With a very sharp condition original factory finish case back secured by screws. Featuring a beautiful condition gloss white original dial with black Roman figures and blued steel hands.

Powered by Cartier 17 jewel manual wind movement. WIth oversized cabachon sapphire crown for manually winding movement. A truly terrific model and a great condition example. Offered with black crocodile strap and 18K YG Cartier deployant buckle.

This is the first of this model we have had the opportunity to own in about 6 years. If you are reading this copy, you are probably well aware of the significant increase in interest and value of mechanical vintage Cartier models. If you are not familiar with this model, we invite you to come by our shop to try it on and see if you think as much of it as we do.

Note the current model is one of the most distinctive, and in our opinion best looking of a series of 12 new variations on the classic tank model introduced by Cartier in 1973. A classic and scarce example. As a side note, we currently have both the lady’s and the man’s version of this scarce model in stock currently. A great his and hers gift!

Price listed is for check, ACH, or wire only.
