WRIST ICONS takes you back to the 70s with this stunning yellow gold Cartier Gondole JUMBO! The large oversized ellipsed, or rounded square shaped case just oozes late 60s early 70s design. The watch is very reminiscent of the Patek Philippe Ellipse, although they differ in roundness and depth. The Gondole has a really beautiful organic cushion like stepped case, which is both cool and masculine because of its contemporary size as well as feminine due to the rounded corners. If Austin powers would need a new watch this would be his pick! Groovey!!

This large Cartier Gondole  was introduced in 1973. That year saw the launch of the Louis Cartier collection. Twelve gold models with leather straps simultaneously hit the retailers shelves. Their designs were firmly rooted in the brand's tradition, as were most of their names - Tank Normale, Tank L.C. (Louis Cartier), Santos, Vendôme, Ceinture, Fabergé, Gondole, Ellipse, Cristallor, Coussin, Baignoire, Square. With the exception of the Baignoire, they were all available both in the men's and ladies size . (source The Museum Collection book, Marco Strazzi)
