Cartier Ronde Louis Cartier Ref. W6800151 In 18k Rose Gold

There is just something about a Cartier in a round case. The Tank has its charm and is an undeniable icon, that is a given at this point, but the Ronde offers that familiar Cartier elegance in a more classical shape that presents arguably ever more under-the-radar than the instantly recognizable Tank.

The Ronde is not the only attempt at a round watch by Cartier, with the ovaline Baignoire and round Pebble both offered by the brand through the early to mid 20th century. The first example of a Ronde style wristwatch from Cartier dates all the way back to 1910 (that's seven years before the Tank) with the ronde a pattes ("round with lugs") design. As the brand was, at the end of the day, a high end jeweler that served its clients needs. Therefore, we see examples of the Ronde scattered throughout the ensuing half a dozen decades but never really serially produced in a high number.

In the 2000s, Cartier brought the Ronde to the full production catalog with a few different options in case size and movements. Under the name Ronde Louis Cartier, this modern family of watches pay homage to the Ronde's original designer Louis Cartier and his ingenious ability to blend the world of Cartier with what his consumers expected in a wristwatch.
This particular Cartier Ronde Louis Cartier is in overall clean and excellent pre-owned condition. The solid 18k rose gold caseback displays information about the model and the serial number of this example "9452XXX." The case has been professionally refinished. The Cartier-signed dark brown alligator leather strap is in great condition with little wear. On the strap is a correct 18k rose gold Cartier-signed tang buckle. During our quality control check, any necessary adjustments are made to ensure the watch is functioning as intended.

The dial, case, movement, strap, and buckle are signed by Cartier. In addition, this watch comes with its original box, papers dated 8/9/2006, and manuals.

*NOTE: Please be aware that this watch comes with an alligator leather strap as an accessory. If the watch is shipped to any international destination, we will not be able to include the alligator strap due to laws regarding the sale and shipment of exotic leather goods. In this case we will include a complimentary fashiontourbillon.com strap.
What began as a bespoke jewelry business in Paris in 1847 quickly grew into one of the most formidable luxury empires, introducing watches into the mix in the early 1900s with the brand's famous Santos. Since then, Cartier has carried on a tradition of creating instantly recognizable designs, a majority of which showcase the brand's signature Roman numeral hour markers and sword-shaped hands. For nearly a century, Cartier remained under family leadership. Beginning in 1964, the brand changed hands a number of times before becoming a subsidiary of the illustrious Richemont Group, in 1993. While Cartier's official headquarters remain in France, the brand produces their watches entirely on Swiss soil.
