Official model: W1556242
The Rotonde de Cartier Astrocalendaire watch has revolutionized the operation and display of the perpetual calendar. Cartier took the opportunity to create a new central display perpetual calendar with a revolutionary concept. In order to make the perpetual calendar clear and easy to read, the design of the celestial rotating perpetual calendar watch is like an amphitheater, which can be called a true watchmaking initiative. Traditional perpetual calendars display twelve months, seven days a week, dates, and leap years. They are listed in a small space of a few centimeters in diameter, making reading difficult. And this new perpetual calendar display method solves all problems.
The new Rotonde de Cartier Astrocalendaire perpetual calendar watch is equipped with a round platinum case. In this 45 mm case, there is an hour and minute display, a ring-shaped perpetual calendar display and a tourbillon.
The time display is placed at the upper end of the dial. The white dial has classical Roman numerals, and the sword-shaped blue hands gracefully move above the dial.
With a three-dimensional, multi-level concentric circle design, the functions of the perpetual calendar are presented layer by layer: the first layer is the week, the second layer is the month, and the date is displayed on the top layer. The delicate panes move along different levels. As for the last function of the perpetual calendar-flat leap year display, it is clearly indicated by a pointer on the case back.
At the heart of the celestial-operating perpetual calendar watch, it is equipped with the iconic complication of Cartier’s fine watchmaking series-the floating tourbillon, which guarantees the watch’s accurate timekeeping.
At the center of the side of the case is a platinum bead-shaped crown set with a convex round sapphire. In addition to the traditional hour and minute adjustment, the date and month can also be controlled through the crown. Various functions can be adjusted by rotating the crown forward and backward in both directions, making it easier to use.
The celestial running perpetual calendar watch is equipped with 9459 MC movement. The assembly and adjustment of the movement is completed in the new Cartier Advanced Watch Workshop. This movement consists of 382 parts and provides a power reserve of about 50 hours when fully wound.
The 9459 MC movement gear train contains patented technology, which replaces the traditional lever and spring device, which greatly reduces the risk of breakage of the movement parts caused by forced adjustment during non-safety periods. In fact, the traditional perpetual calendar design prohibits any manual adjustments in the hours before and after midnight, so as not to break the movement parts. At the same time, the adjustment by the four tiny buttons on the side of the case is not only inconvenient, but also difficult to identify clearly.
Summary: This Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Astrocalendaire watch with perpetual calendar combined with watchmaking innovation and technological creativity has completely changed the operation and display of the perpetual calendar. It adopts a new ring-shaped rotating perpetual calendar display method to achieve extraordinary dazzling effects It’s memorable. The 9459 MC self-winding mechanical movement, created by Cartier’s Advanced Watch Workshop, is carefully crafted, equipped with a tourbillon and ring-shaped perpetual calendar, and has a premium seal of Geneva.
