Cartier Calibre de Cartier

Calibre, this is a man’s world

For the first time in modern age that is long after the foundation of the watch and jewelry company in 1847, Cartier is to introduce the Calibre de Cartier in 2010 as an exclusive men’s chronograph without a corresponding ladies’ equivalent. The Calibre consists of a massive case with a broad bezel effectively embedding the dial. As the crown protection dominates the right hand side, symmetries of the Calibre are shifted in favor of designs. As well as satin-finished surfaces and color-coordinated dials the classic Roman numerals of Cartier add to its signature appeal. Collectively produced in the manufacture of La-Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, Cartier chronographs are powered by different movements of again different complications. For instance the Calibre of Grand Complication features the mechanic movement 9436MC with manual winding, a perpetual calendar, a tourbillon, and a power reserve as well as a push-piece chronograph function. Adequately housed in a skeleton case of platinum it is also evidence of the good expertise and exquisite skill of Cartier watch makers, as embellishments alone take 200 working hours for each watch.

Cartier classifies the Calibre de Cartier into a category of chronographs only, comprising aprrox 10 varieties in total and a category of watches with an automatic or mechanic movement made available in more than 15 versions.
