Presented during SIHH 2013, one of the largest exhibition exhibitions in the world, the newest edition of the Rotonde de Cartier line has a modern look and innovative complications.
With the Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon Carbon Crystal Replica Watch (reference W1556221), Cartier introduced the new mechanical movement of hand rope 9460 MC, which uses the technology of the Cartier ID One concept watch adapted to the Astrotourbillon movement, where the tourbillon bridges and pulleys in carbon crystal were perfectly adjusted to work without lubrication. With only 38 mm in diameter, the mechanism has 249 pieces, a true masterpiece of replica Cartier watchmaking.
Made from an ultra-resistant and lightweight niobium and titanium alloy, the case measures 47 mm in diameter and 15.5 mm in thickness. The shape of the crown follows the pattern of the Rotonde de Cartier replica watches collection, with a black spinning cabochon lapidation at its top.
The elegant gray galvanized dial features a brushed finish, simulating the design of the sun’s rays. Roman numerals and a chemin de fer scale at the center decorate the dial, in addition to the sword-shaped hands, which have been treated with superluminova so that they can shine in dark environments, making it easier to read. A sapphire crystal with antireflex treatment covers the dial and allows to admire the movement of the tourbillon that gives life to the watch.
The black crocodile leather strap and 18-carat white gold deployant clasp closes the new model.
Limited to only 50 units, the Rotonde de Cartier replica Astrotourbillon Carbon Crystal Watch can be purchased on demand from Cartier boutiques worldwide.
