A Case of Exposure
Cartier is no stranger to skeletonized movements; the maison has demonstrated its mastery of this craft through the decades with numerous memorable pieces. To illustrate just how far the manufacture has gone in this area of expertise, the brand held an exhibition at the IFC mall, for which a booth was constructed in the style of the open Roman numeral framework of the Santos 100 skeleton watch. Inside, four zones showcased the brand’s most famous openwork timepieces from the past and present. Among the pieces on display were the Tank LC Sapphire Skeleton, the Rotonde de Cartier Grande Complication Skeleton, as well as two of its concept watches, the ID One and ID Two, to highlight the maison’s breakthroughs in the field of materials and energy management.
