With its 42 mm diameter, the Rotonde de Cartier watch launches a collection of men’s small complication models that combines a second time-zone, a day/night indication, a large date and small seconds.
Fully integrated, the new 1904-FU MC self-winding movement has been developed over a period of several years at the Cartier Manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds. A first in Cartier watchmaking, this movement groups together the setting of all its complications in one single push-piece.
This double achievement revitalises the world of watch complications, giving the ability to display their multiple functions within 42 mm of aesthetic elegance and cutting-edge technology.
With its Roman numerals, its winding crown set with a cabochon, its apple-shaped hands and its “rail-track” minute circle, this watch asserts a formal classicism built around the defining signs of identity of the Cartier watch. This elegance is reinforced yet again by the contrast in its dials between pink or white gold and a silvered flinqué or blue guilloché finish.
