This is the watch for serious Cartier watch lovers. It represents the brand’s current desire to prove to you that they are serious about watch making, not just making classy looking watches.
Flagships in each of its respective collections, these collector’s watches are unique because they take a familiar beauty that Cartier is known for and give them clever mechanical twists. Take this provocative Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton Flying Tourbillon watch. In the newer Rotonde-style case, Cartier has developed a thin movement suspended in the middle, as its edges are cut-out to create the distinctive Cartier Roman numeral hour markers, which are actually all part of the movement plate.
Circular and grained with a prominent sapphire crystal cabochon, the crown suggests Cartier more than anything on the watch itself. Its thin case is trendy, measuring 45mm wide, and is polished with 18 karat white gold and comes with a matching white gold buckle on the black alligator strap.
The Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton Flying Tourbillon watch represents a newer form of design and mechanical complication from the brand, but embodies enough hallmark features to firmly attach a Cartier spirit to the timepiece.
Complete with a Sapphire crystal cabochon at the crown and a white gold buckle on the black alligator strap, this limited edition Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton Flying Tourbillon watch will see only 100 pieces with each piece individually numbered. The price is set at $130,000 each.
