Vintage Cartier Cristallor 15716 Jumbo XL Tank Stepped Case Manual Wind Mechanical Wrist Watch


This is a very scarce model watch and the first I have ever owned since my career began in 2004. And thats says a lot since my activity in the watch industry is quite diverse. This gorgeous watch has a very dramatic look and is perfect for either a male or female who appreciates these tank shape cases. I sincerely doubt I will be able to find another some time soon and was hesitant to list it. I collect and sell so it is hard at times however I want this watch to be appreciated by a collector who will wear it more often than I would. This gorgeous watch has been serviced by our highly qualified and certified watch maker and all parts are guaranteed original. We did fit it with a new Cartier black lizard band for you, the new owner, to enjoy. That alone is an over $300.00 value.

We sincerely hope this watch find the right wrist and collector for this investment in horology and design. -Isaac
