Cartier is known in the world of watch making for its rich heritage of mystery clocks in which the hands appear to float on the dial for more than a century now. It is only after this substantially long span that the expertise is again transformed into two new watches with Mysterious movements: Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Hours and Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Double Tourbillon. The Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Hours is the finest creation of Cartier’s Watch making line this year. Not only has the watch inherited the unusual movement from Cartier’s but also is accessible at a fair price. Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Double Tourbillon with Geneva Seal, as the name suggests is a double tourbillion with two axes of rotation. The technicality with which the mystery is achieved is straightforward. Both the watches function by the same phenomenon in which the hands of the watch are positioned on a clear sapphire disc with a toothed rim and both the discs are driven by gearing around the disc, all of which are neatly hidden by the dial and act as the source of mystery.
Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Hours is available in two royal colours- white and rose gold with a 42mm case of a height of 11.6mm.Though the editions are not limited but they are a few counted ones. The rose gold is available at the astonishing price of $47,852.95 and white gold for $51,182.65.But what is lures are the jeweled versions with either diamond-set bezel or dial and bezel, available at a price ranging $67,807.70 to $94,386.52.
Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Double Tourbillon is available only in platinum and comes in a case diameter of 45 mm. Unlike Mysterious hours it is not a numbered production and is priced at $159,544.02.Another attraction of the watch is its two limited editions fully set with diamonds, either on leather strap or fully paved bracelet available at a price of about $ 611,567.12 and $ 1597320.
