A scarce and dramatic Low Quantity Production vintage circa 1970s Cartier Tank untouched! Mechanical hand wind model in quite remarkable original condition for a man or oversized for a womans wrist. 20 micron gold plated with a oversized distinctive large case with wide stepped and rounded sides which was considered oversized than any of the other Tank models in that time, hence Jumbo. It has the original untouched hand painted black roman numeral lacquered dial with matching steel black hands/pointers.
The dial is considered Tropical dial which has aged to a off-white patina color and has developed a "spider" dial, an effect that shows cracks throughout the dial, which is common among the older Cartier lacquer dials. It has a unusual large and original Cartier cabochon sapphire crown and a original Cartier caliber 2512 mechanical hand wind movement which still tick strong with approx 38 to 40 hours power reserve and sits on a vintage black Patek Philippe lizard watch strap band.The watch measures approx 28mm Without crown and 38mm lug to lug. The Cristal glass has scratches but is original to the watch and the back has some wear.
