BREAKTHROUGH: CALIBRE DE CARTIER CHRONOGRAPH
Chronograph movements measure elapsed time, and Cartier’s version features an integrated column wheel mechanism to boost the accuracy of the function. Other technical highlights include a linear return-to-zero hammer for smooth, instantaneous and precise activation of the chronograph counters, and a vertical coupling system that minimises the mechanism’s energy consumption while enhancing its stability. Besides mechanical prowess, the Calibre de Cartier Chronograph impresses with its elegant style. Available in eight models on leather straps and metal bracelets, from the all-steel version to one in gemset white gold, the watch sports a distinctive dial bearing oversized Roman numerals and a fluted bezel with graduated railway tracks. A blue cabochon – a Cartier design signature – in the winding crown completes the watch’s sporty yet regal allure.
