Swiss Cartier Watches Unveils Two New “Mysterious” Complications
November 15, 2017
The Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon Fake Watch , powered by Cartier’s in-house Caliber 9465MC, is — you guessed it — a skeletonized version of the first Mysterious Double Tourbillon model. As in that watch, a double flying tourbillon, completing a rotation in 60 seconds, and its cage, which performs a second rotation every five minutes, appears to float in mid-air, unconnected to the rest of the movement, while sword-shaped, blued-steel hour and minute hands keep the time in an off-centered position at 12 o’clock. For this new iteration, the movement’s bridges have been skeletonized into the shape of Roman numerals — a design flourish that has become a hallmark of Cartier’s skeletonized timepieces in recent years.
The watch’s round, Swiss Cartier Watches 45-mm case is made of platinum, with a beaded crown set with a sapphire cabochon, another mainstay element of Cartier’s Rotonde de Cartier series. This decorative crown is used to manually wind the skeletonized, 286-part movement, which features 26 jewels, a 21,600-vph frequency, and a 52-hour power reserve and is enhanced with chamfering on the bridges, drawn flanks, and polished screw heads. All of these embellishments are on display in both the front and back of the watch through sapphire crystals. The strap is navy blue alligator, with a folding buckle made of 18k white gold.
The other new piece that Cartier has shown us,combining the architecture of the “mysterious” movement —developed, as mentioned above, for Cartier’s famed “Model A” Mystery Clock in 1912 — with a day-night indicator that was incorporated into another historical Cartier clock, known as the Comet clock or Planet clock. The Rotonde de Copy Cartier Watches features a stylized sun and moon arcing from left to right across the top half of the dial, indicating the hours on Roman numerals on the flange, while the minutes are displayed in the bottom half by means of a blued, retrograde pointer hand.
The 40-mm 18k rose-gold case houses the Replica Watches For Sale, manually wound by the beaded, cabochon-set crown, which is on display through a clear sapphire caseback. The movement is composed of 174 parts, including 26 jewels, and has a frequency of 28,800 vph and a minimum power reserve of 48 hours. The warm gold of the case resonates nicely with the gray alligator skin strap, culminating in a rose-gold folding clasp.
