SIHH 2012 just began today and (mediator of the Cartier Forum of Revolution On-Line) presents to you a sneak review from the Cartier stall in Geneva. Most intriguing is the skeletonized pocket watch that will be limited to 10 pieces only.
As you are likely acquainted with the tourbillon development, you realize that it essentially just bodes well in a pocket watch. Cartier decided to utilize a tourbillon development for this restricted version pocket watch, and added in addition, a chronograph and ceaseless schedule. This pocket watch is essential for the Fine Watch Making Series (replacement of the CPCP – Collection Privée Cartier Paris – arrangement), which is being brought first by Geo @ Revo-Online.
This white gold manual cleaned watch case estimates 49.2mm in measurement, which should make it an ideal fit for each pocket. Cartier built up their own development for this arrangement of 10 watches and named it ‘9436MC’. With a force hold of 8 days, you can wear this each Sunday and just need to wind it once prior to putting away it in your safe again.
