Walk­ing in the Air

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

Be­ing the undis­puted cham­pion of mys­tery watches in the 21st cen­tury, Cartier has set bar even higher with the Ro­tonde de Cartier Astromys­terieux. First and fore­most, this in­cred­i­ble time­piece show­cases some of the brand’s most im­pres­sive me­chan­i­cal mir­a­cles, namely the Astrorégu­la­teur, a minute re­peater, the Astro­tour­bil­lon (which ac­tu­ally doesn’t com­pletely fit the tech­ni­cal def­i­ni­tion of a tra­di­tional tour­bil­lon) and the skele­ton grande com­pli­ca­tion. More im­por­tantly, though, un­like a typ­i­cal mys­tery watch where it’s the hands that are “mys­te­ri­ously” mounted, al­most the en­tire move­ment seems to float in the mid­dle of the case while re­volv­ing once ev­ery hour. Will this be­come the true suc­ces­sor of the ven­er­a­ble tour­bil­lon? Well, that re­mains, for now, a mys­tery.
