RETHINKING A SIMPLE SHAPE

 

Shapes are pared down and reduced to their pure essence. Everything is a question of precision, balance and proportion with great mastery employed to create a seamless flow, an elegant economy and a harmonious whole. The bezel is gently rounded, the horns smoothly tapered all sharp edges eliminated. Together the components unite to conjure up an intangible perfection.

A SIMPLE REVOLUTION: REINVENTING THE CROWN

 

“Clé” in French means key, and the crown’s resemblance to one is unmistakable. The act of resetting the time and date introduces a new gesture to the world of watchmaking—one that recalls the traditional turning of a key to wind up a clock. Elongated and pure, it is adorned with a sapphire that is not set in a classic manner. Instead, it is ingeniously inserted to remain flush with the metal that surrounds it.

A SIMPLE STEP: A NEW IN-HOUSE MOVEMENT

 

Combining cutting-edge technology and in-depth expertise, the new movement was developed, produced and assembled by the craftsmen of the Cartier Manufacture in Switzerland. Its name — 1847 MC — was not chosen by chance - with the numerals indicating the year of the Maison’s creation.The incorporation of a particularly rapid barrel provides it with tremendous chronometric stability. Its automatic mechanism with dual-direction winding is endowed with great robustness and durability thanks to a specially conceived lever system.
