Description

Cartier Mirage G8 cufflinks. A pair of yellow gold cufflinks, composed of a circular plaque with textured finish featuring an intricately raised plane motif on each alongside the inscription 'G 8', with smooth polished borders, fitted to the reverse with a secure push button closure mechanism, approximately 2cm in diameter. Marked 18ct yellow gold, approximately 24.3 grams in weight, signed 'Cartier', French, circa 1968, accompanied by a fitted box.

The Mirage G8-01 and G8-02 were French fighter jet prototypes developed and built by Dassault Aviation in the 1960s. The G8-01 was a two seater aircraft, undertaking its first flight on 8th May 1971, the G8-02 was a single seater aircraft, making its first flight on 13th July 1972. Although Dassault built and flew the protoptypes, the programme was terminated in the 1970s without the either aircraft entering production. The G8-01 can now be viewed at the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace near Paris.
