Offered here is a stunning example of the Cartier Gondole Jumbo Paris 18K Yellow Gold with brown crocodile leather strap, manufactured circa 1980’s.
The Cartier Gondole was Cartier’s answer to the 1970s trend of bold, large-case designs. It is impressive on the wrist and makes the regular Cartier Tank look tiny. The double-stepped bezel helps the watch appear even larger. This "jumbo" model was offered in both 18k yellow gold and white gold - either in the vertical orientation seen here or a horizontal orientation featuring a TV-shaped case - also something of a 1970s classic.

Other than the larger case profile, Cartier showed restraint in the Gondole's appearance. The dial is classic white with black Roman numerals and blued steel hands. When a well-known watch design is produced in a larger size, the dial proportion is often missed, but thanks to the brand's meticulous jewellery savoir-faire, Cartier nailed it here. To remain with Cartier's iconic list of design features, the watch's crown is topped by the brand's signature sapphire cabochon.

This yellow 18k gold classically styled Jumbo Gondole with contrasting brown crocodile leather strap falls nicely into the category of classically designed dress watch. The white dial with its contrasting black roman numerals and blue metal hands all enhance the overall appearance of this beautiful piece. It is powered by the manual movement calibre 97B with cabochon sapphire crown.
The overall condition of this Gondole Jumbo is very good, the 18k yellow mirror polished case is unmarked along with its contrasting brown crocodile leather strap and yellow gold deployment buckle. The dial and numeral markers are all consistent in colour along with its blue steel hands.
The watch is accompanied by its original Cartier service box and manuals, along with the Cartier service card dated 4th July 2019.
