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.
