Cartier Graces The Geneva International Haute Horlogerie Exhibition

As a symbol of unparalleled creativity, Cartier Haute Horlogerie has always defined the future of watch development. All this comes not only from Cartier’s inexhaustible desire and pursuit of perfect integration of traditional skills and innovative technology, watchmaking common sense and extraordinary ideas, but also from his infinite love and passion for creating top-quality works. Calibre de Cartier Astrotourbillon
At the 21st International Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, the Calibre de Cartier Astrotourbillon is a modern tourbillon watch with a modern atmosphere, a high-quality seal of Geneva, artistic beauty and rich animal decoration. Cartier’s ladies watches, as well as elegant and sparkling high jewelry watches, Cartier once again demonstrated its lofty pursuit and outstanding achievements in the field of fine watchmaking.
Calibre de Cartier Astrotourbillon Tourbillon with calibre 9451 MC
Powerful and lightweight, luxurious and pleasant
五年 After five years of creation and development, the Astrotourbillon movement, which was officially launched last year, provides the source of power for Calibre de Cartier watches. This distinctive timepiece has a meticulous case and movement, and the large diameter dial made of titanium alloy is elegant and light. This watch is an excellent example of Cartier’s fine watchmaking. It is limited to 100 pieces and each watch is engraved with a unique number.
Carved case
全新 The newly designed 9451 MC movement in 2010 uses a gorgeous new 47 mm case. The frame structure of this case matches the former’s innovative technology just right. The lightweight titanium gives a strong, exquisite, and natural feel, while the four ergonomically designed lugs match the shape of the wrist when bent down, making it particularly comfortable to wear. The exquisite case contour is complemented by the frosted and polished double crown shoulders to protect the octagonal crown from any impact that affects the operation of the watch. The rigorous standards and creativity shown in all these details are also shown on the dial’s Roman numerals; these numbers, including the oversized XII, which occupies the dial’s main position, fully express Cartier’s code style. The semi-circular surface followed by the case perfectly reflects the dynamic 21st century.

先进 Advanced technology and creative movement
945This 9451 MC movement is equipped with a tourbillon frame, which includes an escapement system and a balance spring system. Like the traditional tourbillon, the frame is driven by the third gear of the gear transmission system. Similarly, the pinion of the escape wheel rotates around the fixed second hand gear (the fourth gear in the gear system) to drive the entire escapement. Not only that, this exquisite tourbillon, also known as the Astrotourbillon celestial running tourbillon movement, has its own characteristics that make it unique in the world.
First, this frame is located in the center of the movement and therefore rotates around a specific axis. As a matter of course, the entire gear transmission system from the movement’s double barrel to the minutes and clock display has been completely redesigned.
Secondly, the appearance of the Astrotourbillon astronomical tourbillon watch is unique. The axis of the balance wheel and the axis of the escape wheel do not coincide with the axis of rotation of the frame, but are located in the center of the dial, which is aligned with the frame.
Finally, the tourbillon frame is placed ‘above’ the movement between the two dials, instead of being embedded in the movement like a traditional tourbillon.
中心 This central structure is extraordinary, it is the perfect combination of aesthetic design and exquisite craftsmanship. Visually, the flat frame runs around the center of the dial every minute for a full week. The balance bridge in the shape of an arrow is off-center, indicating seconds. Technically, in order to ensure the perfect balance of the frame, a platinum balance weight is loaded on the other end of the frame and hidden under the central dial. In addition, in order to offset the inertia when the frame rotates, the weight of the frame must be limited (the total weight of the frame is only 0.39 grams without counting the platinum balance weight), which is why the titanium tourbillon frame was selected.
