Rotonde de Cartier Minute Repeater Mysterious Double Tourbillon

Cartier 2017

Men's

Rotonde de Cartier Répétition Minutes Double Tourbillon Mystérieux square

 

 

For the first time, the magic of Cartier's mysterious

movement, introduced in 2013, meets the mechanical complexity of a minute

repeater. The Rotonde de Cartier Minute Repeater Mysterious Double Tourbillon

represents a twofold challenge. In addition to the technical feat of assembling

448 components in a case measuring a mere 11.15 mm, the timepiece is

aesthetically stunning, as the openwork mechanism and contrasting black rhodium

finish expose the transparency of the mysterious double tourbillon. This complication is unique to Cartier, whose mystery

clocks of the early twentieth century stand out in horology's history. The

flying tourbillon, which completes one rotation every 60 seconds, appears to be

suspended, as though unconnected to the movement. The illusion is made greater

still by the sapphire disc on which the tourbillon is mounted, and which makes

its rotation in five minutes.
