SIHH 2018 is a replica watches few months away, but we are already listening to some of the new watches that will be released. Today we have a couple of Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Mysterious watches - the Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Day & Night and the Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon.
The idea for these mysterious watches actually comes from the Mystery Clocks that Cartier traced back to the early 20th century. These watches were notable because [SPOILER ALERT] their hands were fixed on clear discs guided by gears just out of sight, creating the impression that they were floating on the dial. This iconic look has been adapted for a number of Cartier watches and offers an interesting insight.
The Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Day & Night is available in an 18-karat pink gold or 18-karat white gold case. Cartier fans will be pleased to know that it also comes with the brand's signature blue sapphire cabochon crown. Water resistance is rated at 30m.
The dial is divided into two parts. The upper half features a day and night complication and also shows the hours in the form of a 12-hour scale that reads from six to six. During the day, a replica watches uk luminous dial will appear on the dial and work its way from left to right. The hours are read simply by looking at the position of the sun in relation to the 12-hour scale. When it is night, a moon will appear and similarly make its 12 hour journey from left to right. The lower half of the dial features a radiating guilloché pattern in the center and a retrograde minute display.
