The imposing dial offers a striking reinterpretation of one of Cartier‘s emblematic watchmaking codes. An extra-large XII Roman numeral dominates the dial with unbridled excess. It is a resolutely modern signature, enhanced by a succession of grained and snailed finishes arranged in arcs.
The bezel that embellishes the case plays on contrasts: smooth and polished on the exterior, it becomes increasingly dynamic as it approaches the case. A 28 degree freefall towards the dial culminates in a fluted ring marked with 120 notches; a subtle detail that refers both to watchmaking trains and to the Manufacture spirit that pervades this new masculine timepiece.
Striking a subtle balance between power and finesse, the CALIBRE DE CARTIER watch is exceptionally comfortable to wear. It feels like a second skin and owes its ergonomics to the four horns that curve inwards to embrace the shape of the wrist. Its refined silhouette is punctuated by a polished, satin-brushed double shoulder, which protects the sides of the crown from any impacts that could affect its operation.
