“Baignoire” is the name of one of Cartier’s most famous lady’s watch designs initially unveiled in the 1920’s. The Baignoire watch has received its name after a bathtub as the shape of the watch’s case reminds the rim of a bathtub. The shape of the case represents a simple yet elegant interpretation of the classic tonneau case.
The Cartier Baignoire Grand Modele watch, based on the original Baignoire, has become bigger in size. The timepiece was unveiled at SIHH 2009.
The pure dial of the Cartier watch is completed with blued hands and Roman numeral hour markers. The crown is worth special attention – it demonstrates a sapphire jewel cabochon.
The new Baignoire watch, reviewed by watches.infoniac.com, accommodates an ultra-thin manually wound movement - Piaget 430C. The case of the watch is crafted from brushed 18-karat gold. The solid silver dial is embellished with sunburst guilloche.
The Cartier Baignoire Grand Modele watch embraces the wrist with an elegant beige satin strap provided with an inner lining to make it more durable. The strap is fitted with an 18k gold signed buckle.
