Cartier Basculante ref. 2405 Mid-Size Stainless Steel Watch

Movement: Cartier cal. 059 (Quartz); Swiss Made; factory battery service in September of 2022

Features: Classic original white Roman dial; original blued hands; really cool and unique folding Cartier "Basculante" case with iconic synthetic blue cabochon and sapphire crystal; discontinued model from the early 2000s

Other: If you fancy the JLC Reverso, you'll love this Cartier Basculante! The unique case architecture allows it to be worn inside out like the Reverso, but you can also wear it with the dial tilted up like a driving watch (or use it as a desk clock). In the case of the latter, it's nice to know that you don't have to wind it every day since the Cartier 059 Quartz movement will keep ticking away. We just had a factory Cartier battery service performed in September of 2022 where the entire case was disassembled and cleaned with a fresh battery installed and tested. New factory Cartier gaskets were also installed at this time.
