If a recession doesn’t manage to add a frown to your brow, then it’s time for you to splurge a bit more! At the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2010, Cartier will unveil its new model called “Captive.” This “Captive de Cartier” watch will feature an 18-carat rhodium-plated white gold diamond-paved central dial having a 35mm diameter. The bezel and dial are said to be set with round diamonds. The watch crystal protecting the face of the watch is made of sapphire. The water resistance capacity is set at 30 meters. The internal winding mechanism is made of quartz supported by diamonds weighing in at three carats.
The folding clasp, also made of 18-carat rhodium-plated white gold, is adjustable with the light grey brushed canvas strap.
