Essay: During the 1970’s Cartier diversified its range of watches by producing timepieces with several bold large case designs.

The Gondole was one such model introduced by Cartier. The case encompassed a double-stepped bezel which gave the illusion of appearing to be bigger. The larger “jumbo” model were produced in both 18ct white and yellow gold, either in a vertical orientation or a horizontal orientation which came to be known as the “TV-shaped case”.
