After numerous impressive and unique ventures dedicated to pushing the boundaries of watchmaking – just think of the cartier rotonde de cartier grande complication skeleton replica watch with a vacuum inside its case or this Astrocalendaire – Cartier really is flexing its muscles here in an effort to show off its capabilities and knowhow in more traditional segments of haute horlogerie. The result is a symphony of 578 parts that took five years to develop and required fifteen weeks to complete.
Features include a flying tourbillon, perpetual calendar, and a minute repeater, any one of which, taken on its own, is an impressive horological feat.
The cartier rotonde de cartier replica watch is supposed to act as a critical marker on the timeline of the brand and its evolution from jewelry maker to one that also produces some of finer mechanical watches out there.To really appreciate how far Cartier has come as a watch manufacturer, let’s take a brief look at the company’s history.
To eventually be able to offer a wider range of its cartier replica watch with in-house manufactured calibers, Cartier has established its state-of-the-art manufacture in La-Chaux-de-Fonds in 2001, and expanded it further in 2007, so that this vertically integrated facility (meaning that the absolute majority of necessary components are made here) also features timepiece research and development departments. In that same year, Cartier’s parent company, Richemont SA, purchased the Geneva-based facilities of Manufacture Roger Dubuis, a producer of Geneva Seal movements. Because for a movement to be awarded the Geneva Seal it not only has to meet certain strict aesthetic (and now, timekeeping) requirements, but the movement itself also has to be manufactured in the canton of Geneva, Cartier moved ten of its master watchmakers into the facility.
