Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton Replica Watches

Ever since Cartier released the 41mm-wide version of the Cartier Clé watch with the “mysterious hours” complication, I’ve been quietly in love with this still newer case design as the foundation of interesting, more high-end models that are nevertheless simple in their presentation.SIHH 2016 sees the debut of the Clé de Cheap Cartier Replica, which takes Cartier’s now popular in-house-made and distinctly skeletonized watch movements a step further by adding automatic winding – a first for a movement of this type produced by Cartier.

Skeletonized mechanical Replica Watches are enjoying a sort of new golden age because the visually very satisfying decoration process also happens to help watch lovers justify why they spend the big bucks on luxury timepieces. It isn’t always enough to have a mental reminder that your high-end timepiece contains a nice movement – sometimes you want a constant reminder on your wrist. Moreover, the skeletonization process offers a very real view into the operation of these tiny machines which track the time. The emotional enjoyment one receives from viewing the moving gears, beating regulation system, and hand-finished surfaces should never be underestimated.

The challenge in offering a skeletonized movement is in making it both visually attractive, as well as legible and practical. Sometimes movements that were never meant to be skeletonized receive the decorative process and aren’t that amazing-looking as a result. Over the last few years, we’ve seen more and more movements designed from the ground up with skeletonization in mind. Cartier Replica Watches isn’t shy about the fact that it meant for the in-house calibre 9621 MC to be cut up and decorated. In fact, the signature Roman numeral hour markers are actually part of the movement bridge structure itself.

With that said, the challenge in maintaining a high degree of legibility in the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton is due to the fact that the face is really a skeletonized dial that sits on top of a skeletonized movement. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this from Cartier, and the result is something that does feel beautiful albeit impractical from the perspective of daily utility. Granted, this isn’t going to be the most precise-to-read timepiece you’ll probably own, but the blued steel sword-style hands over the full scale of Roman numeral or baton hour markers make the Cartier Replica convenient to live with, at least.With its retro-style cusion-shaped case and wide lugs, the 41mm-wide (water resistant to 30 meters) size feels good even if the strap feels a bit proportionally narrow given the overall size of the case. The case is also a stately 11.45mm thick, which is a size that makes itself known, but also isn’t overly thick by any means. Of course, despite all my talk of practicality, the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton arrives exclusively in a 950 palladium case. If you prefer, Cartier also offers a version of the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton with brilliant-cut diamonds set on the case.

The in-house-made Cartier 9621 MC is both attractive and practical, operating at 4Hz with about 48 hours of power reserve. Produced from 165 parts, the automatic rotor is also highly skeletonized being produced from 22k white gold. Given the gold’s weight, I am sure it provides enough mass for appropriate automatic winding efficiency.Don’t forget that, because this is a Cheap Cartier Replica case, you get the nifty Clé (“key”) winding key-style crown. This rectangular-shaped crown has a fixed resting position to fit evenly with the case and a very interesting tactile experience when being wound. Yes, it is fun to use the crown, but I prefer not being forced to use the crown all the time, which is why I am happy the 9621 MC movement is an automatic.

Minor downsides of any dramatically skeletonized watch such as this is that your wrist will always provide a backdrop as your peer through the timepiece. The notion of being able to see right through the movement and inspect all of its little angles is great, but oftentimes you need to beautify your own wrist in order to make it work properly. The approach Arnold & Son took with their Time Pyramid is one that I would like more companies to explore. The newest version of the Time Pyramid in steel has a piece of “one-way mirror” that when viewed from the dial side is literally a sort of silvery mirror, and when viewed from the caseback offers an only marginally opaque view through the rear of the watch. Just throwing that out there because I know how sexy Cartier Replica Watches like the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton look in the abstract – only to result in a different consumer opinion once they put the watches on their own wrists.

Cartier Rotonde Mysterious Hour Skeleton Replica Watch

Cartier has quietly begun to announce their plans for the luxury timepiece exhibition held in Geneva every year. While they certainly aren’t strangers to the fine watchmaking arena, Cheap Replica Watches is typically known for their rich history as a company that produces and distributes a wide variety of luxury goods. Still, we all know that there’s always more to the story when it comes to their watches. For 2017, Cartier has announced a series of three highly ambitious watches including the Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Mysterious Hour Skeleton Watch we see here. It’s a piece that pushes a generally conservative Cheap Cartier Replica concept into new territory while showcasing Cartier’s classical mystery clock design elements.

At first glance, we see that the watch is built upon the brand’s established Rotonde de Cartier design. You’ll find no tourbillon, no minute repeater, and a wealth of crafty skeletonization work that’s sure to wow anyone that manages to get their hands on it. Although the watch isn’t necessarily sporty, Cartier has announced that the palladium case will be 42mm in diameter, which makes it quite generous and comfortable for most wearers. Also, at 11.9mm thick, the watch should have no issue in terms of balance. Inside of the watch beats Cartier Replica Watches hand-wound movement, which is quite visible thanks to the extensive skeletonization that also makes up a set of Roman numeral hour markers.

Over at 9 o’clock, we have a large sub-dial that’s proudly built in the style of Cartier Replica mystery clock design that started over a century ago. It’s comprised of two small sapphire discs with fitted white hands and nothing else. Each disc is affixed to the movement and tracks independently of the other to indicate hours and minutes. Although the idea may appear simple, Cartier seems to have kept the specifics behind the mechanics a secret. So although a great deal of the movement is visible, the connection to those mystery sapphire discs is relatively obscured. It’s this aesthetic combination of secrecy and openness that really sets the watch apart from the others in their SIHH 2017 announcement.

Another feature worth noting is the cabochon sapphire crown, which is just classic Cheap Cartier Replica. In a way, it ties the whole design together and serves as a subtle way of reminding the wearer that this is an ornate, high-end watch from a brand that really dominates in the world of jewelry.
