The La Dona is one of Cartier’s discontinued models, but with an unusual curved trapezium shaped dial it has a very distinguished design which was made as tribute to the celebrated Mexican actress Maria Felix. With her crocodile as her iconic mascot, Felix asked Cartier to design a piece of jewellery inspired by the crocodile and brought it into the shop in a jar. To commemorate this story, Cartier designed the La Dona which replicates the reptilian scales in the strap and curved glass giving it an alluring and snake-like appeal. With this fascinating tale in mind, a pre-owned Cartier La Dona is a remarkable show-stopper piece.
