Footnotes

  • The Cartier Maxi Oval was first sold in the late 1960's in two sizes. The present watch is an example of the larger Gentleman's version. The all hand made production from the London workshops was very limited and as such they very rarely come to auction. Sold for £375 in yellow gold through the London Bond Street Boutique with a matching numbered clasp or as Cartier put it 'traditional Cartier fastening'.
