While Cartier has rightly earned its place as an icon in watchmaking, its contributions to haute horlogerie are often far less discussed than designs like the Tank or Santos. While they may fly relatively under the radar, these offerings rarely lack for spectacle. This exclusive box set trio of designs all aim to push the aesthetic limits of skeletonization, inspired by both the brand’s own design traditions and the dramatic look of floating mystery dials. The Cartier Mysterious Skeleton Double Tourbillon Replica begins with the clean, minimal Rotonde de Cartier case, with its short straight lugs, narrow bezel, and elegant profile.
Measuring in at 45mm-wide and 11.9mm-thick, this platinum case features the brand’s signature beaded cabochon crown at 3 o’clock set with green jade. The skeleton dial of the Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon takes an elegantly architectural approach to displaying its movement. Strictly speaking, every visible element under the sapphire crystal is structural, with the Cheap Cartier Replica brushed and chamfered anthracite gray bridges hollowed out into lithe Roman numerals. While a set of elegantly small Breguet hands near 12 o’clock handle actual timekeeping, the entire bridge structure forms a frame directing the eye downward toward the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
This element spins on its axis once every 60 seconds, while completing a circuit of its skeleton subdial every 5 minutes. Inside the Replica Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon beats the manufacture 9565 MC hand-wound tourbillon movement. Beyond the intricate architectural skeletonization and the mystery dial flying tourbillon, the 9565 MC offers a power reserve of 52 hours at a 21,600 bph beat rate. Cartier finishes the piece with a jade green alligator leather strap, subtly matching the cabochon for a cohesive look.
The platinum case design follows the same pattern as its stablemate, but measures in slightly larger at an imposing 47mm. Here Cartier opts for a cabochon in deep blue aventurine, adding a sparkling touch to the crown.The entire gear train is centralized as much as possible, leaving the entire movement to seemingly float in space between the front and rear crystals. To add to this hovering effect, Luxury Cartier Replica places this model’s tourbillon escapement on top of the rest of the movement rather than integrating it into the rest of the design, allowing the oversized tourbillon to visually float above the rest of the assembly at the very center of the dial.
Taking five years to develop, the 9641 MC hand-wound tourbillon movement inside the Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon is designed for maximum aesthetic impact with its top-mounted central tourbillon and extremely long bridges supporting the gear train. Power reserve stands at 48 hours at a 21,600 bph beat rate. Perfect Cartier Replica once again matches the Astrotourbillon’s alligator leather strap to its cabochon crown, here with a deep midnight blue.
All three watches in the Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Precious Icons Set are presented in a lavishly decorated lacquered wood presentation box, topped with hand-fitted and airbrushed wood marquetry in a linked ring mosaic pattern, and fitted with palladium hardware.As a showcase of Cartier’s ultra-high-end haute horlogerie capabilities, the limited edition Best Replica Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Precious Icons Set offers both world-class movement making and a refined aesthetic sensibility that still recognizably carries Cartier DNA.
