The luxury replica watches are not part of a real world. Some carry with them throughout their lives the scent of dreams from which they come. Perhaps it is the case for this Cartier Tourbillon Crocodile Poinçon de Genève Calibre 9458 MC.
Crocodile Poinçon de Genève Tourbillon Calibre 9458 MC
As soon as you look at him you would think that everyone at the Cartier replica have been involved and happy at the end: the watchmakers and craftsmen jewelers. The former have reversed the mechanical movement to show its bridges dentures, then the jewelers have put on its dial crocodile diamond that seems to want to protect. The Calibre 9458 MC responds to the orders of a flying tourbillon made following the rules of the Geneva Hallmark.
To be fond of mechanics, known for the features of the first manufacture movement. And ‘manual winding consists of 197 items of 19 rubies. Oscillates at 21,600 vibrations / hour and has a power reserve of 50 hours. The inverted Caliber presents a flying tourbillon with a C-shaped cage which serves to also mark the seconds.
The tourbillon is not – as usually happens – frontally protected from bridges and bordered by the sinker, and his cage seems to literally fly like it was made of air, and able to float on the dial. This choice would lead to compromising its function to preserve the accuracy, but at the replica Cartier watches – precisely because of the particular shape of the cage – have managed to solve the problem: made with diamond inserts requires more than 50 hours of work. The rest of the movement is no exception – worked and finished to be within the specifications of the Geneva Seal.
The case is made of 18 k white gold rhodium – measures a whopping 44.5 mm. The crown is rhodium-plated and inlaid with diamonds. The pad is mother of pearl. The strap is black cloth with gold pin buckle in 18 k also inlaid with diamonds. At the end there are 585 precious stones for a total of 8.20 carats.
The Cartier Tourbillon Crocodile Poinçon de Genève Calibre 9458 MC will be produced in limited edition of 50 pieces. We will see him in front of all luxury watches that the House will at SIHH 2011.
