Catier Replica went straight to the main course – unveiling a new case shape to add to the collection.
Tonneau, a French term for barrel, was used to describe the striking shape that stood out amongst the simple, round cases of the time. Neither a rectangle nor an oval, the tonneau is an amalgamation of both rather, with the case curving ever so slightly. When it was presented, Cartier copy watch in platinum, for emphasis on its “avant-garde aesthetics.”
Besides the Roman numerals, a minute track further towards the middle of the dial, and a cabochon on the winding crown – the quintessential Replica Cartier look – the pair of watches see the new handwound 1917 MC calibre powering them, with a 38 hour power reserve.
Both the platinum and pink gold versions, the Tonneau XL Dual Time Skeleton is just one of the many illustrious examples of Cartier’s Fine Watchmaking Department’s expertise over the years. It may be a simple question – what can be achieved aesthetically by pushing watchmaking – but Cartier’s Replica Watches answer is anything but.
