DESCRIPTION

  • SIHH 2014
    ELEGANCE & CREATIVITY


    Celebrating Cartier style in Fine Watchmaking is the Maison's creative approach for 2014. Style is a question of elegance and balance. It is the fountain-head of constant research, supported by technical expertise with a drive that redefines and questions watchmaking conventions by reinventing traditional complications such as the perpetual calendar or by transforming the timeless Tank model.
     
    Cartier's achievements in Fine Watchmaking are the fruit of a constantly innovative approach at the service of highly distinctive aesthetics. Its past as an inventor and designer has given rise to a style that favours volume and shapes. The same drive can be seen in the Maison's technical concepts: their freedom and importance have enabled Cartier to revolutionise the representation of time with Fine Watchmaking pieces that adhere to the Manufacture's highest standards.
     
    For this 2014 edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Cartier expresses the excellence of its craftsmanship with the launch of innovative timepieces bearing the Maison's creative seal.

    CREATIVE ELEGANCE

    By paying homage to historic signature features such as the Rotonde de Cartier Day and Night complication or the Skeleton, the Maison places elegance at the heart of its approach to watchmaking. Cartier revisits this unique heritage with its wealth of emblematic aesthetic traits in new creative interpretations.
     
    Three iconic timepieces have been selected for this exercise in style: the Rotonde de Cartier Day and Night, a historic complication with geometric style, the Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton and the Tank MC Two-tone Skeleton which celebrate the watchmaking art of skeletonisation and the Ballon Bleu de Cartier 39enamelling that is testament to precious expertise.

    Weightless circles

     
    This weightless work of art perpetuates the Maison's heritage by capturing the magic of two expressions of Cartier style: the elegance of Tank aesthetics and the uniqueness of skeletonised transparency.  
     
    A bold and refined creative statement, the Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton watch celebrates the excellence of the Watchmaker of Shaped Timepieces.  
      
    Tank and transparency: the quintessence of Cartier watchmaking style 
     
    With its attachments incorporated into the case in alignment with the strap, the Tank watch created in 1917 is part of Cartier's heritage of shaped watches. Timeless yet ahead of its time, this great classic has conveyed a real sense of modernity from the outset.
     
    Transparency, meanwhile, has been an integral part of the Maison's style for decades, from the first mystery clocks created in 1912 to the skeletonised movements of the 1930s and the most recent Fine Watchmaking creations. 
     
    Bespoke skeletonisation 
     
    The skeletonisation of the Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton watch introduces new creative horizons with an innovative movement that possesses a transparent plate partially created from sapphire crystal. This clear material, commonly used for the crystal in watch cases, is here diverted from its usual purpose and is the subject of a pending patent.
     
    Taken back to the very essence of its function, the calibre 9616 MC is made up of adjoining circles of metal that appear to be suspended and trace the shape of the movement. A circular bridge gives structure to the circles and the harmony of the Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton watch.
     
    An abstract and contemporary work of art, the Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton represents the subtle link between form and technical skill.
