I’ve seen a great deal of watches this week. I’ve seen the Lange Triple Split , the Van Cleef Lady Planétarium , the Piaget Ultimate Concept Watch , and the Audemars Piguet RD#2 . They’re all great in their own privilege and innovatively progressed somehow. Yet, there was one watch from SIHH 2018 that made me go “Hold up!” the second I saw it (no truly, I literally shouted “Hold up!” in the center of the generally refined gathering), and that honor goes to the Cartier Révélation d’Une Panthère.
This watch comes in a 37mm pink gold case with a precious stone set bezel, and there are three distinctive dial tones to browse (red, green, and dark). The red and the green are each restricted to 100 pieces, while the dark dial is limitless. The watch is fueled by the physically wound type 430, which is incredible however not the primary focal point of this watch. This one is about what’s going on the dial side.
When you hold the watch upstanding, more than 900 gold balls tumble across the dial to round out a Panthére design that seems to drift over the actual dial. Also, kid is it sorcery. It required five years (indeed, five years!) to build up this watch, and Cartier expects two licenses identified with remember as well – one for the fluid used to suspend the small balls and the other for the sort of glass used to encase the fluid and dabs. The fluid must be actually the correct consistency and furthermore temperature safe so it wouldn’t freeze when you venture outside during a cold New York City winter day (and we’ve had a great deal of those recently). Moreover, the fluid couldn’t harm the gold, as they’re in steady contact and this watch needs to keep going the long haul.
The Cartier Révélation d’Une Panthère retails for $106,000 and is only a crazy watch. Regardless of whether you’re not going to add one to your assortment, you should attempt to at any rate get a search for yourself in the metal. For additional, visit Cartier on the web .
