Pre-SIHH 2016: Cartier - Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon in Pink Gold

| No comment
First introduced at SIHH 2014 with a platinum case framing a blue lapis lazuli dial, the Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon is now presented in a pink gold version with a grey meteorite dial.

Cartier will showcase the new model at the upcoming Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (Geneva, 18-22 January) as one of the 2016 Fine Watchmaking creations.

The name of the watch comes from the presence of two sub-dials representing the Earth and the Moon, both cut out of polished meteorite stone.

Two the indications: on one side, a terrestrial display showing local time and a second time zone indication represented by a 24-hour disc; on the other, a lunar display with inter-dependent
tourbillon and on-demand Moon-phase indications.

The pushpiece at 2 o’clock adjusts the second time zone indication while the second push-piece at 4 o’clock activates on demand a disc that slides across to conceal the tourbillon cage and reproduce
the Moon’s shape in the sky.

The openworked dial is enriched by the pink gold grid created by the III, IIII, VIII and IX Roman numerals and the sword-shaped hands in blued steel, both typical elements of the Cartier watchmaking design codes.

The imposing case is 47 mm x 16.65 mm with sapphire crystals on both sides to unveil as much details as possible of the manufacture hand-wound Calibre 9440 MC, developed by Cartier R&D in collaboration with Renaud & Papi. Comprised of 362 parts, this movement beats at 21,600 vph and offers a power reserve of 3 days.

The Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon Pink Gold will be created in a limited series of 15 numbered pieces priced at US$ 235,000 each.
