It for a spin

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

If you’re a new­bie to cush­ion-shaped watches—like most peo­ple are at the mo­ment—then this newly ded­i­cated num­ber for men by Cartier is go-to op­tion. Be­hind that scin­til­lat­ing cush­ion-shaped case and snazzy dial with the house’s iconic ro­man nu­mer­als is a round case-back. In a way, it cre­ates the il­lu­sion of be­ing a com­mon round watch when looked at from only one side—and it cer­tainly feels like one on the wrist. Still, Cartier’s strong­est suit is in the de­tails. Take, for ex­am­ple, the ex­quis­ite con­trast­ing guil­loches be­tween the cen­tral hands and the sub-dial for sec­onds be­low. They both take ref­er­ences from a car’s tachymeter and dash­board, but, thank­fully, not as lit­eral like many other brands do. No less spe­cial is the bolt-like crown topped with Cartier’s sig­na­ture blue cabo­chon. It is, put sim­ply, per­fec­tion in style.
