The Rotonde de Cartier Fling Tourbillon

Cartier new models in Pink Gold and White Gold

This is another of the new year’s Cartier timepieces. This is the third Tourbillion model released in 2012: the Rotonde de Cartier Flying Tourbillon. 

The Rotonde de Artier flying tourbillon  offers a classic reinterpretation of the 9452 MC Movement, specially produced to meet the criteria of the Geneva Seal. Complementing more contemporary design such as the Calibre de Cartier or the Ballon Blue de Cartier, this refined watch is the smallest in its category with its 40 mm diameter offering exceptional comfort on the wrist. 

A blend of circles and curves, it has been carefully designed to give power to the watch without making it heavy and to underline its exceptional technical characteristics, the C-shaped tourbillon carriage appears to fly on the bridges, as if weightless above the dial. 

Technical details:

Rotonde de Cartier Annual Calendar Watch

Cartier at the SIHH 2012

As all top brands attending the SIHH 2012, Cartier introduced some of its new dazzling models for this new year collection. Today we are introducing the Rotonde de Cartier Annual Calendar. 

This new timepiece honoring the Creator of Fine Watchmaking from Cartier manufacture reinvents once again the traditional functions of a watch. The 9908 MC Annual Calendar Movement has been entirely conceived and produced by Cartier development teams in order to incorporate the most important characteristics of an annual calendar: readability and functionality. 

By incorporating a Large Date, the model offers excellent readability; by making the crown the only means of correcting the calendar, the operations and setting functions are simplified. The movement is fitted into a Rotonde de Cartier 45 mm case. 

This watch, regulated just once a year at the end of February, shows the date, the day, and the month. 

Technical details:

Movement: Mechanical Manufacture self-winding movement, calibre 9908 MC, 32 jewels

Power reserve: approximately 48 hours

Functions: hour, minutes, seconds, annual calendar with day, date, and month

Case: 18K Pink gold

Diameter: 45 mm

Dial: silvered openwork grid with sunray effect with black transferred Roman numerals and sword-shaped blued-steel hour and minute hands

Strap: alligator strap woth double adjustable deployant buckle in 18K Pink Gold

Water resistance: 30 meters or 99 feet.
