The Cartier Grand Complication Skeleton pocket watch

Another preview before the SIHH 2012 from Cartier

Cartier Grand Complication Skeleton Pocket Watch

We have presented the Rotonde de Cartier Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon as a preview to the SIHH 2012 earlier this week. We now have another glimpse of a complicated watch, the Cartier Grand Complication Skeleton pocket watch.

Nothing classier, sober and stylish than a pocket watch manufactured by Cartier. The brand, who has presented a complicated watch every year for many years now, will be introducing in 2012 the Cartier Grand Complication Skeleton pocket watch, an exquisite timepiece that will surely be added to all watch lovers wish-lists. 

In terms of design, in order to carve these twelve Roman numerals out of the original solid gold surface, this technical tour de force required at least 100 hours of extremely high-precision craftsmanship to perfect the finish and embellishment of each numeral.
