This platinum case Cartier Tonneau in the XL here benefits from a much cleaner dial than that of it’s smaller, more crowded counterparts. The overall condition of the watch is almost immaculate, with a small dent to the caseback. The white dial shows Roman numeral hour markers with an interior Tonneau shaped minute ring to match the case. This piece features blue steel hands and the unmissable bejewelled and engraved crown. The watch dates to 1980 and carries the signed calibre 78 manual wind. It comes with Cartier replacement box and no paperwork on a black leather strap. The Cartier Tonneau has been in production since the first five or six years of the 20th century, and the shape and style has hardly changed at all. This design consistency is a key characteristic of Cartier’s product lines, with very little variations to designs along the years. This can be said of a few models, notwithstanding the Cartier Tank, dating its design back to the 1920s - a little more recently than the preceding Tonneau.” Jacob Tomkins is founder and publisher of Twelve: Watch Buyer’s Journal. He is dedicated to horological content and collectors knowledge with a particular interest in rare and unusual timepieces. He has gathered valuable and substantial collecting knowledge over a career-long passion and fascination with the mechanics and variations in watchmaking. ** Gender: Men's *Dial: White Roman *Glass: Sapphire Crystal *Movement: Mechanical Wind *Water Resistance: To Manufacturers Specifications *Case: Platinum *Buckle Material: 18K White Gold Deployant *Strap Width: At Case - 13mm/At Buckle - 11mm ** PLEASE NOTE: ALL INTERNATIONAL ORDERS MAY BE SUBJECT TO LOCAL TAXES AND DUTIES WHICH REMAIN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER.
