    The present watch is an outstanding example from the 'Large Oval' series, launched by Cartier New York during the early 1970s. While similar in appearance to the 'Maxi Oval' series by Cartier London, the present watch is distinguished by its larger case and numerals. Furthermore, there is no London signature on the watch dial. The blued steel hands, slightly convex case and black roman numerals made for popular watch during the 1970s.

    The present watch is powered by an Audemars Piguet movement. Known for their technical superiority, Audemars Piguet only supplied movements to their most prestigious clients. Accompanied with a Cartier Certificate of Authenticity, the present watch is preserved in excellent overall condition.
