ROTONDE DE CARTIER SKELETON MYSTERIOUS DOUBLE TOURBILLON
Introduced at the SIHH 2018, this timepiece shows once again the extreme
know-how of CARTIER in Design & Fine Watchmaking.
Your eyes are directly going to explore the mysterious and transparent « heart » of this piece! and i don’t blame you because it feels so good to appreciate such work inside a round case. Suspended in mid-air, it looks like the Flying tourbillon has no connection to the movement… but of course, it regulates the calibre 9465MC. How? Well, think a little bit and don’t forget that it’s all mechanical.
In terms of « animation », the flying tourbillon does a rotation in 60 seconds (on itself) and 5 minutes for the transparent circle. You’ll also see the barrels spring shrink when a winding action is given.
The architecture around the Flying Tourbillon is a work of Art ! I love the roman numbers and how the movement is placed behind them. The visibility on the wheels and open barrels is Superb. You will also notice a nice finishing on the parts and that’s what i like with the Maison Horlogère.
They are Masters in terms of Design and when some of their timepieces (like this one) have one or several complications, the execution is simply Perfect !
Well done! Cartier.
