DESCRIPTION

  • CARTIER FINE WATCHMAKING: EXCELLENCE IN CRAFTSMANSHIP AT THE SERVICE OF CARTIER STYLE

    Refinement and excess are the creative themes for Cartier Fine Watchmaking at the 2018 edition. The solid structure of the Skeleton movement, tangible and powerful, contrasts with the enigma of the mysterious movement, ethereal and discreet.

    Transparency and depth intensify the impact of these signature movements at the intersection of craftsmanship techniques.

    The Mysterious movement, an icon of Cartier Fine Watchmaking, was born in 1912 of a collaboration between Louis Cartier and watchmaker Maurice Coüet, whose first mystery clock, known as Model A, was inspired by the clocks of the famous illusionist and father of modern magic, Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin.

    This year Cartier honours the historic movement in two new watchmaking interpretations: a Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon, and for the very first time, a Mysterious Day & Night movement.

    The Santos Skeleton watch introduces solid gold and solid steel bracelets with self-fitting links for the first time in Cartier Fine Watchmaking.

    - The mysterious movement and skeleton movement come together in the Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton Double Tourbillon watch.

    - The Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Day & Night watch with retrograde minutes introduces a day/night complication to the mysterious movement.

    - The Santos de Cartier watch lends its new ergonomic design to the iconic skeleton movement patented by Cartier.

    These stylish timepieces are imbued with the excellence of Cartier watchmaking craftsmanship.

    SANTOS DE CARTIER SKELETON WATCH, CALIBRE 9619MC

    The Santos de Cartier watch is part of Cartier’s stylistic heritage. Since its creation in 1904 the innovative timepiece has kept up with the spirit of the age as the design has been updated with the passing decades. The latest version features self-fitting interchangeable straps.

    Available in steel, gold, calfskin or alligator skin, all versions are interchangeable thanks to the Cartier QuickSwitch system (patent pending) hidden under the strap, where the invisible mechanism blends into the structure of the case. To activate the system the wearer simply presses the mechanism.

    Another cutting-edge feature is the SmartLink self-fitting technology (patent pending) which adjusts the length of the metal bracelet to the nearest link without the use of a tool.

    At the touch of a button located on each SmartLink, the attachment bar is unlatched and one of the brushed metal links with screws can be added or removed from the Santos de Cartier watch.

    Patented skeleton

    The tradition of skeleton watches at the Maison dates back to the 1930s. But the skeleton acquired the status of a Cartier signature more recently, with the creation of the Santos 100 Skeleton in 2009, which inaugurated the Roman numeral architecture. This complication of the Maison evolves today with the new Santos de Cartier watch.

    The instantly recognisable timepiece is protected by a patent that confirms Cartier’s position as the only watchmaker to create a skeleton movement with bridges that help to tell the time.
