CARTIER - ROTONDE PERPETUAL CALENDAR CHRONOGRAPH
The Cartier Rotonde perpetual calendar chronograph combines the measurement and display of short periods of time with a mechanism whose gears possess the ability to compensate for the irregularities of the Gregorian calendar.
With a 42 mm case and an alligator skin strap are entirely in tune with the expectations, and fitted with two 100% Cartier complications that are among the most highly appreciated in the marketplace.
The first is the perpetual calendar that continuously indicates long periods of time; the second is a new column-wheel chronograph calibre that, measures much shorter periods, such as brief events, with great precision.
At its heart is a wheel that completes one revolution every four years, with 48 indentations of varying depths on its circumference that indicate, via a feeler, whether the current month comprises 30, 31, 28 or 29 days.
The module also incorporates a retrograde hand, indicating days of the week, as well as a specific mechanism for displaying the date.
This mechanical heart is carefully hand-finished to the highest standards of fine watchmaking, including an openwork oscillating weight, and it is powered by two barrels in order to raise its torque and give it a power reserve of 48 hours.
