Cartier built upon its long tradition of elegantly shaped watches with the introduction of an entirely new men’s collection, called Drive de Cartier. This year the watch-and-jewelry maison expands the series with new variations whose cushion-shaped cases feature a slimmer profile for an even more understated look: the Cartier Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat Replica Watches US.
The watch includes all the design codes of the original Drive de Cartier models, many of which trace their origins back to other iconic Cartier models like the Tank and Santos, including Roman numeral hour markers, a railroad minute track, blued, sword-shaped hour and minute hands, highly defined case proportions, and an octagonal crown set with a blue sapphire cabochon. In 2017, Cartier Replica Watches introduced the first Extra-Flat models in the Drive collection, in white gold and rose gold. The 2018 models, both with silvered dials, add two additional case materials: stainless steel and yellow gold, the latter of which appears to be making a quiet comeback in the luxury watch world. The case dimensions are 38 x 39 mm, similar to those of the first Drive de Cartier Replica Watches US models, but the thickness is a modest 6.6 mm, reduced from its predecessors’ 11.25 mm height by 40 percent.
Inside the case is a manual-winding movement, Cheap Cartier Replica Caliber 430 MC, which uses a Piaget movement, Caliber 430P, as its base.Measuring 20.5 mm in diameter and a wafer-like 2.1 mm thick, the Cartier-branded version of the movement is made up of 131 components, including 18 jewels, beats at a frequency of 21,600 vph, and stores a power reserve of 43 hours. The steel model of the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat comes on a blue alligator strap, the yellow gold model on a gray alligator strap; both fasten with ardillon buckles in case-matching materials.
Cartier Replica Watches US introduced a new version of its Astrotourbillon concept: the Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon Skeleton. The watch lays bare the workings of its unusual rotating tourbillon mechanism, suspending it in in the skeletonized movement.
The key feature of the Astrotourbillon line is its take on the conventional tourbillon mechanism. A normal tourbillon rotates on its own axis, with the carriage usually making a full rotation every 60 seconds. The Astrotourbillon uses an elongated carriage to make the mechanism that holds the balance wheel rotate around the perimeter of the dial once per minute. As a result, the Cartier Replica Watches tourbillon functions as a center-mounted seconds hand. While previous versions of the Astrotourbillon have used the signature rotating tourbillon design, the tourbillon mechanism typically has been placed between two levels of the dial, thus limiting the wearer’s view. The new skeletonized version makes all aspects of the movement readily visible.
The 38-mm movement, Caliber 9461 MC, is held in place by the Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock; along with the winding stem, these are the only parts of the movement that attach to the case. The Luxury Cartier Astrotourbillon Skeleton Watches movement is 8.89 mm thick. Caliber 9461 MC is a manually wound movement with a 48-hour power reserve. It vibrates at 21,600 vph. There are 233 components, including 23 jewels. The carriage of the Astrotourbillon is driven by the third wheel.
The pinion of the escape wheel rotates around a fixed seconds-wheel in order to drive the escapement. Because it is positioned at the center of the movement, the carriage has a special rotational axis. The Cartier Watches Discount Forum tourbillon carriage is positioned above the movement, rather than being directly integrated as with classic tourbillons.
The origins of the Astrotourbillon date back to 2010, when Cartier first introduced a version of the watch using the 9451 MC movement. The orbiting tourbillon had been in development since 2005. The new Astrotourbillon Skeleton has a 47-mm case in white gold. The crown is set with a sapphire cabochon. The Cartier Watches Lowest Prices is water resistant to 30 meters. It comes on a black alligator strap with a double folding clasp in white gold.
