How Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Astromystérieux Replica Watches

With the Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Astromystérieux, Cheap Cartier Replica gets a dual prize for not only one of the most beautiful watch releases of SIHH 2016, but also probably the most “French sounding.” Try and say “Astromystérieux” without picturing a stroll in Paris along the Seine after an afternoon window shopping in the Place Vendome. You’d walk along imagining to yourself all the attractive luxuries you saw and exclaiming to yourself, “but the prices are all so Astromystérieux!”

Such early 20th century clocks used transparent crystal discs to move hands which otherwise appeared to be floating. In this instance, mystery translates into both horological elegance and beauty. We’ve seen a range of other “mysterious” Cartier Replica wrist watches released over the last few years such as the recent Clé Mysterious from late in 2015 not too long ago. For this newest “interpretive tourbillon mystery,” Cartier returns to its popular Rotonde case style for a piece that combines these two worlds of interest. Suspended between what are actually three transparent sapphire crystal discs is more or less the entirety of the movement system that make a full rotation on the dial each hour.

A series of delicate mechanics and 188 ball bearings exist in the periphery of the 43.5mm-wide Rotonde case – which for this particular Cartier Replica Watches model is produced in 950 palladium. This mechanical support network allows for all the movement to turn, but more importantly, allows for the user to rely on the traditional crown to both wind the movement and set the time. Cartier no doubt needed to design a novel system to ensure ample shock protection as well as a new type of winding limiter to ensure the movement is not overwound. The resulting system for the latter is patented, and according to Cartier, operation of the Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Astromystérieux feels just like that of any other more traditional mechanical movement – despite the appreciable effort undertaken for this very poetic and attractive mechanical presentation.

I already mentioned that the Case_size:43.5mm wide (water resistant to 30 meters), and I’ll add that it is just 12mm thick – which isn’t that bad given the relative thickness of the movement. While not exactly a petite dress watch, the Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Astromystérieux Replica Watches should maintain a high degree of elegance and grace on the wrist. Around the periphery of the dial is a lightly textured, silvered ring with painted black Roman numeral hour markers that appropriately match the black pomme-style hands in true Cartier character. In the crown is a typical blue sapphire crystal cabochon.

Cartier blends graceful sophistication with high-horology intrigue in a package which I can’t see too many watch collectors shunning. The Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Astromystérieux might not be the next luxury timepiece for everyone, but it is certainly a resolute crowd pleaser. It also happens to be a limited edition. Cheap Luxury Watches will produce just 100 pieces of the Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Astromystérieux in palladium, with no immediate plans for further models in the future. With that said, Cartier has confirmed the availability of a baguette-cut diamond-set versions of the Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Astromystérieux watch in addition to the non gem-set models.

Cartier Drive De Cartier Watch Hands-On

For fans of Cartier who happen to be guys, this watch has been a long time coming. Don’t get me wrong, Cartier makes a host of men’s watches, but the Cartier Drive de Cartier watch is a piece that I could confidently say is a watch that can successfully broaden the brand’s appeal in a way that hasn’t been done for quite some time. The reason for this may very well lie in the fact that it offers a range of options from steel, to gold, to a flying tourbillon model. That being said, it’s the steel version that is both the most affordable and has me the most excited.

Before I get into the technical aspects of the Cheap Cartier Replica, I want to talk about the shape of the Cartier Drive de Cartier watch. It’s a new design for Cartier, looking like a cushion-shaped watch with a defined dial that has soft corners rather than a circular dial. It works, and it works very well. The dials all have a richness of depth to them, with a focus on the interplay between visual texture that contrasts the varying guilloche designs, flat surface dial, and even “skeletonizing” the space between the roman numerals in the flying tourbillon model to expose the guilloche below.

There are three versions of the Cheap Replica Watches. The base steel model comes in a white or black dial, both running on the 1904-PS MC movement. This is the in-house Cartier automatic movement that operates at 4Hz and has the time with a subsidiary seconds dial and date. It is the same trusted movement used in watches like the Cartier Tank MC. Are people going to whine about the date window? Probably. I’m actually one of those people who would prefer the option to not have it there, but it doesn’t really take away all that much from this watch. In fact, I could learn to like it but would much prefer this next one.The steel and pink gold versions that run on the 1904-FU MC are the “small complication” Cartier Replica. These offer a second time zone dial at 10 o’clock and a day/night indicator at 4 o’clock. As fatigued as I am of the date window conversation, I must say the large date window at 12 o’clock here looks great and is definitely nicer than the smaller one at 3 o’clock in the 1904-PS MC model. I know that’s a matter of taste, but if you must have the date window, then this one is it.

Finally, there is the Cartier Drive de Cartier Flying Tourbillon watch. This watch runs on the manual 9452 MC movement, which only shows the time and the tourbillon. It also carries the Geneva Seal, which is a sign of some of the highest level and quality watchmaking known. It’s an undeniably beautiful piece that is sure to get the attention of collectors who are looking for something new from the “Fine Watchmaking” workshops of Cartier Replica Watches.It is interesting that Cartier has managed to release a brand new line that somehow appeals to both collectors as well as a vastly different subsection: the casual, or even first-time, watch buyer who has long dreamt of, and saved for, a fine luxury mechanical watch that really speaks to them. Of course, there are watches like the Cartier Tank and Cartier Santos, but the weight of all that history and provenance makes it pretty hard for someone in their 20s or 30s to really relate to their storied histories. They’re the kind of Cheap Luxury Watches where you know a lovable and affable octogenarian will spend the better part of an evening talking your ear off about. Of course, I am mostly referring to the steel models of this watch for this example.

Cartier could probably lose some of the macho vintage car origin myth of this watch’s design and be perfectly fine. The guilloche is allegedly inspired by the design of a radiator grill on a car, and the bolt shaped crown is designed to illicit a similar automotive theme. Sure, and I really do see where they are coming from here. But in a way, the best compliment I can pay this watch is that I really don’t care about the design’s backstory that much. With the Cheap Cartier Replica, the brand has created a fantastic and handsome piece that I could wear every day and be proud of with both the design as well as the quality in-house movements.
