The dual mysterious tourbillon movement was born in 2013 at the La Chaux-de-Fonds watch workshop, marking an important milestone in Cartier’s watchmaking history: the tourbillon is suspended in In the air, it seems that there is no connection with the movement.
Cartier ROTONDE DE CARTIER double mysterious tourbillon skeleton watch
This tourbillon uses a revolutionary double floating design: the first tourbillon frame rotates once every 60 seconds; the second tourbillon frame contains the entire ‘mysterious’ part, which rotates once every 5 minutes. This requires a very high level of craftsmanship, while maintaining overall coordination, while meeting the requirements of a slim watch case and complex craftsmanship:
All parts are carefully decorated by hand, after chamfering, brushing and polishing of screw heads. The new work launched this year, combined with the Roman numeral hollow bridge, makes the watch more lightweight and delicate. Mysterious legendary magic is complemented by a transparent cut-out aesthetic. The rounded curves of the watch and the mysterious movement complement the sharp geometric lines of the skeleton bridge.
