DESCRIPTION

  • A SELECT CURATION FOR COLLECTORS AND CONNOISSEURS, CARTIER PRIVÉ CELEBRATES THE DIFFERENT SHAPES OF MEN’S


    WATCHES THROUGH THE MAISON’S ICONIC MODELS. A NEW CHAPTER FOLLOWING THE REINTERPRETATION OF THE CRASH
    WATCH IN 2015 AND THE TANK CINTRÉE IN 2017.
    CARTIER SEIZES THIS MOMENT TO DRIVE FORWARD WATCHMAKING, ITS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY SERVING THE EXACTING REQUIREMENTS OF DESIGN. MOVEMENTS AND CALIBRES ADJUST TO THE IMPERATIVES OF FORM, ADAPTING THEIR SHAPE TO SIGNATURE CREATIONS OF TIMELESS BEAUTY, ISSUED IN LIMITED EDITIONS.

    THE STARTING POINT: A VISIONARY’S WATCH!

    This year Cartier shines the spotlight on one of its oldest wristwatches, the Tonneau watch. Revealed in 1906, after the Santos watch in 1904, it once again challenged the tradition of round pocket watches. Tonneau? “Tonneau”, meaning “Barrel”, may seem a funny name for a watch, especially for a model that would become the precursor of modern watches. At the time it was still an oddity, but its shape was both strong and pure. The dial is on the cusp between a rectangle and an oval; the case curves slightly, tendering one of the first significant modifications aimed at fitting it better to the wrist. Cartier coated it in platinum to emphasise its avant-garde aesthetics in an era when many watches were made of gold. The “vis armurier” tube screws adorning the lugs demonstrate how attention to detail was already in evidence around 1910. By combining a leather strap – a simple, natural material – with precious metals, Louis Cartier underlined its beauty. The watch was “modern” and people liked it. This year, Cartier celebrates this legendary watch shape with a redesigned hours and minutes model and a skeleton dual time zone model, taking watch aesthetics to another level.

    THE SKELETON DUAL TIME ZONE TONNEAU WATCH

    Call it a revival or a comeback – Cartier elevates the Tonneau watch to the ranks of designer object. With this new watch, Cartier pays tribute to the Tonneau XL dual time zone model in the CPCP collection, which initially had two separate mechanisms for the home time and the second time zone. The ultimate in technical watchmaking expertise is put entirely in the service of aesthetics. Cartier has incorporated the same exacting characteristics, adapting them to the initial shape without altering it.

    Selecting a curved case, placing a dual time zone in it, making the whole run on one single movement – 9919 MC calibre – and fitting the geartrain in a line: all this called for every iota of technical mastery and spirit of innovation that Cartier can demonstrate.

    Two complex feats were required in order to remain true to the original shape. Firstly, to retain the watchcase’s elongated form, all the wheels of the geartrain had to be aligned between  12 and 6 o’clock. Then the shape of the movement underwent modification, being made to curve so it fits within the curved contours of the Tonneau watchcase. The geartrain features angled cutting on its barrel and escapement wheel.

    This concern for comfort and ergonomic design required a feat of watchmaking prowess in ensuring the watch follows the curve of the wrist. Lastly, in the pursuit of aesthetics, the two time zones were linked to create an impressive display combining the useful with the pleasurable: the time is easy to read on the skeleton bridges, and the second time zone is set by pressing on the crown at 4 o’clock and by one-hour jumps.

    Cartier adds its own watchmaking signature by skeletonising the movement, bringing lightness and nobility to a traditional complication:  a demonstration of how to perfectly balance form and function, case and movement.

    The pink gold and platinum versions come in limited, numbered editions of 100 pieces,  while 20 numbered pieces are available in the baguette-cut diamond-set platinum series
