CARTIER

ROTONDE DE CARTIER


This watch has a generous dial which becomes a canvas for expression for two historic Cartier complications which have been a part of the Cartier heritage since the year 1912: the mysterious movement and the Day/Night indicator. These two complications get together for the first time. The sun, driven from left to right by the mysterious movement, appears to levitate in the top half of the dial, before handing over to the moon. The sun and moon, two stylised heavenly bodies, in turn indicate the hours of the day and night when the retrograde minutes are displayed in the bottom half of the dial. This airborne reading of the time is magnified by the juxtaposition of the radiating guilloché and satin-brushed sunray finish on the dial. A celestial piece indeed!
