Cartier: Rotonde Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon

26 / 12 / 2017

The pronounced style of Cartier leaves a strong first impression.

At six o'clock we find the star of the watch: the Rotonde Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon with no visible connection to the movement. It seems to literally float in the in-house caliber 9465 MC. Its cage circles the inner circle in five minutes and the double tourbillon completes a complete turn around its own axis within sixty seconds.

Everything is skilfully skeletonized and cleverly constructed by creating the skeletonized bridges showing Cartier's numbers as Roman numerals.
The movement has a power reserve of 52 hours and consists of 286 components.

The case is 45 mm in diameter and made of solid platinum. Its height is 12.4 mm. The blued steel hands and the Cartier-type sapphire cabochon in the crown add a touch of color to the otherwise monochrome watch. The chic navy blue alligator strap has a white gold folding clasp. The Rotonde Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon costs around 215,000 Euros and is limited to 30 numbered pieces.
