The Ceinture was originally introduced by Cartier in 1927. Over 50 years later, during the early 1970's, Cartier reintroduced the Ceinture as one of 12 special "shaped" watches that formed part of the “Louis Cartier Collection”. The word Ceinture in French translates to "belt", and the watch was named as such given its resemblance to the buckle of a belt. The Ceinture in the 70's was produced either in white gold, yellow gold, or a combination of white gold and yellow gold. Starting from the 80's, Cartier introduced additional Ceinture variants powered by a quartz movement. One of these variants was the Ceinture Trinity which used a combination of yellow, white, and rose gold for each of its triple stepped octagonal case. The Trinity Ceinture produced came in the SM size (for ladies) and LM size (for men's) with a hidden ribbed lug design. The Ceinture stands as a perfect example of why Cartier is often referred to as the "master of shapes". The maison's astonishing talent lies in crafting refreshingly unique designs that defy the traditional norms of their era, leaving us truly amazed.

This Cartier Ceinture Trinity in 18K YG, WG, and RG is in overall great vintage condition. The octagonal triple stepped case is strong and is in beautiful condition. Throughout the case there are light scruffs, scratches, and some oxidation has developed which are all consistent with a watch of this age. The original Swiss only white lacquer dial is in overall clean condition with no major blemishes. The dial is the original Swiss only white lacquered dial which is very rare given most dials get replaced by Cartier during servicing to a "Swiss made" dial. As with the vast majority of Cartier white lacquered dials produced during this era, the dial has formed some cracks, visible at an angle, but nothing major. The quartz caliber 157 was recently serviced with a new battery installed. The watch comes with its original Cartier leather strap that was used by the previous owner and is in worn condition. It also comes with its original Cartier gold filled tang buckle. The watch comes with its original box and papers including the certificate of guarantee.
