With the invention of a revolutionary setting, Cartier starts a new chapter of its watchmaking and jewellery history. At the end of the 19th century, the so-called “trembling setting” technique was introduced, enabling Cartier to let its diamonds move freely without restraint. Today, this has inspired Cartier’s ground-breaking Vibrating Setting, a feminine and modern creation.
The building of this instance, with observable casebands that are slender (and brushed, to emphazise this comparison even more), is well thought. The visual and tactile perception is in fact considerably different than what the specs will make you believe. Obviously at 11.25mm, it will be rather tough to conceal it under a cuff but this sleek profile will considerably benefit to the general elegance of the watch. According to Cartier, the case is perfectly executed and, in this gold variant, it’s a certain old-school charm that we quite adore here.The face of the Cartier Ladies Ballon Bleu Watch With Custom Diamond Bezel Replica Drive isalso, on its own side, exceptionally classical to the creation of this Old Maison. That’s where Cartier was appropriate with this watch: bringing a fresh air in the shapes, inspirations and dimensions, without shockingly change the DNA. We find back the dial with various different areas: a central guilloché part with concentric waves, a small minute with circular layout, a minute track encompassing these guilloché regions and ultimately, on the periphery, the hours indicated by strong Roman numerals — with of course, the name Cartier printed at the 7 numeral. Another usual feature are the classical sword hands, in blued steel, for the hours, minutes and small second. Overall, no revolution on the dial up. The novelty comes from the form of the watch, which gives some additional sportiness, but clearly not the same kind of sport than a Calibre de Cartier. It could well be a perfect casual view, and a great daily beater within this golden case, as a suit and tie will not be afraid it.The times of outsourced or quartz movements are over at Cartier, especially for men’s watches. That means you won’t be amazed to know that the Cartier Drive comes with a in-house motion — and not the manufacture’s “entry-level” calibre, such as from the Clé. The Drive includes something more specialized, more complicated and possibly more exact. And that’s something we are not likely to whine about, especially knowing the cost of the watch (at least in steel). Within the Drive ticks the Calibre 1904MC-PS — PS significance “miniature seconde” or small second. This movement was first introduced in the Calibre p Cartier also it was the very first automatic movement entirely produced in-house by the brand new. Its title, 1904, is a reference to the date when Cartier began to do watches — see that the Santos for more details.
