Cartier Ro­tonde de Cartier Fly­ing Tour­bil­lon Re­v­ersed Dial

Sharp - - SHARP WATCH -

Like most pieces of haute hor­logerie, this Cartier is all about the de­tails. The case and fold­ing clasp are 18-carat white gold, as are the curv­ing Ro­man nu­mer­als on the dial, while the wind­ing crown is adorned with a sin­gle pol­ished sap­phire. The in­di­vid­u­ally num­bered move­ment con­tains 167 hand-fin­ished parts, in­clud­ing a “fly­ing” tour­bil­lon, so-called be­cause it ap­pears to float within the case. Even at 46 mil­lime­tres across, this watch’s most im­por­tant fea­tures (and the things that make it worth its lofty price) ap­pear only to those priv­i­leged enough to get a closer look. $177,000
