The deep starry sky seems to have a magic power, giving people a temptation to want to find out, and so is the watch. The watchmaking features of the starry sky elements and the watch often give people a unique aesthetic, and it is also one of the more popular designs this year. In 2016, Cartier’s Rotonde de Cartier series set sail again. The perfect fusion of profound knowledge and exquisite design, launched this Rotonde de Cartier series day and night moon phase watch, showing the starry sky on the wrist, this classic time Design adds a unique charm.
Moon Phase Function and Cartier
Different charm day and night
As early as 1912, Cartier had mastered the complex function of making moon phases. At that time, the clock works known as ‘comets’ or ‘planets’ were from Cartier’s hands, presenting elegant and gorgeous time display methods through high jewelry and fine watchmaking. Since then, Cartier has launched a number of timepiece works based on mathematical rules. Through the Rotonde de Cartier day and night moon phase watch, the sky is closely connected with the art of time travelling through the earth, reflecting Cartier’s pioneering spirit of continuous exploration of the aesthetics of timepieces.
Watch case display
Atmospheric 40 mm 18K rhodium-plated white gold case with a thickness of 12.16 mm. The outer bezel is set with 68 brilliant-cut round diamonds, which are luxurious and bright. Unlike publicity gold, platinum is noble and cold. Give people a unique look and feel. After processing such as sanding, the platinum case emits a unique light and is very beautiful.
Retrograde moon phases and day and night indications
Watch overall display
From dawn to moonlight, the sun and moon alternately ‘moved’ from left to right above the 18K rhodium-plated white gold dial. This high-cold luxury watch has two functions: retrograde moon phases and day and night indication. The retrograde moon phase is located on the dial with gold powder on the dial, where the moon phase of the day is clearly visible on the watch dial. (The full moon on both sides is decorated with sapphire, and the remaining moon and full moon are decorated with diamonds.)
Watch dial display
Between the clouds on the starry sky, the sun and the moon appear alternately, giving a real sense of day and night alternation. There is a diamond separation between the day and night display, the time scale circle and the dial, and the layout is reasonable, so that there is no visual impact between the functions, and it is more convenient to observe the functions of time and month. It also adds beauty to the dial.
Watch crown display
The polished round crown has a delicate texture and is set with a diamond to show the brand’s consistent design style, giving Cartier a unique charm. The top of the crown is inlaid with a cone-shaped gem, which is standard on many Cartier luxury watches.
Watch lug display
The exquisite 18K rhodium-plated white gold lugs are polished into the case after being polished, which connects the watch and the strap well, showing the overall luxury and elegance of the watch.
Watch movement display
The use of sapphire crystal mirror and case back makes the movement at a glance, adding to the fun of watch viewing. It is equipped with a Cartier 9912 MC automatic winding movement with a vibration frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour and a power reserve of approximately 48 hours.
Watch strap display
The watch is equipped with a dark blue alligator leather strap, which is comfortable and easy to wear. The strap is connected with a folding clasp in 18K white gold and is set with 43 diamonds, which complements the diamond-set case, showing the overall beauty of the watch.
