MAN OF MYS­TERY

The Ro­tonde de Cartier Astromys­térieux fea­tures a won­der­fully in­no­va­tive take on its sig­na­ture Mys­tery move­ment

Singapore Tatler Jewels & Time - - Spotlight -

Un­der the tute­lage of head watch­maker Ca­role Forestier-kas­api, Cartier has con­sis­tently upped the ante of its haute hor­logerie of­fer­ings, rein­vent­ing the wheels of in­no­va­tion time and again. Her team’s skills are demon­strated with the Ro­tonde de Cartier Astromys­térieux, a rein­vented avatar of Cartier’s iconic Mys­tery watch. The en­tire move­ment, in­clud­ing the es­cape­ment, gear train, bal­ance wheel and bar­rel, sits on a plate of sap­phire crys­tal, and ro­tates by the hour. It’s a mes­meris­ing bal­let of po­etry and tech­ni­cal in­ge­nu­ity. The watch is limited to 100 pieces in pal­la­dium.
