Description

Cartier Calibre De Cartier Flying Tourbillion Volant 18kt Rose Gold Special Edition 45mm, Silvery White Galvanized Satin-Finish Sunray Guilloché Dial, Blued-Steel Sword-Shaped Hands, Faceted Crown set with a Sapphire Cabochon. Powered by a Manufacture Manual Winding Mechanical Caliber 9452 MC Movement. The Flying tourbillon complication features a stunning seconds indicated by the C-shaped tourbillon carriage. Fitted on a brown Alligator leather strap with 18kt Rose Gold fold-over deployant buckle.

The flying tourbillon timepiece immediately makes its mark as a watch of character. The XII numeral on the dial is enlarged, making it the powerful aesthetic signature of this new creation from the Cartier Manufacture.

Powerful, robust, and refined, this version of the watch is equipped with an exceptional flying tourbillon: the calibre 9452 MC with the Geneva Seal. The mechanical Manufacture movement with manual winding contains 142 components including 19 jewels. It is driven by the flying tourbillon whose C-shaped carriage indicates the seconds. With a thickness of 4.5 mm and a diameter of 10 3⁄4 lines, this calibre beats at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 50 hours.

Whereas a traditional tourbillon carriage is carefully protected between the bridges and main plate, the flying tourbillon of the watch has been designed to enhance its visual appeal. It almost seems to float on the bridges, as if hovering weightlessly above the dial, which gives it greater exposure to shocks that could disturb its operation. This aesthetic choice is technically risky and requires the master watchmakers to pay particular attention to the design of the tourbillon carriage to ensure that it benefits from the same level of shock resistance as a traditional tourbillon.

Taken from the French word meaning whirlwind, the tourbillon’s hypnotic oscillation embodies the name flawlessly. Patented by famed watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1801, the classic tourbillon endeavored to counteract the effects of the earth’s gravitational pull on watch movements, known as positional error. The solution was to suspend the balance wheel, balance springs, and escapement in constant oscillation within a cage, averaging out any potential errors caused by gravity when the watch rests in one position for too long.

The flying tourbillon distinguishes itself further by the absence of an upper bridge in the cage. Supported only from below, this distinguishing feature provides an unobstructed view of the impressive movement. The result is a timepiece of the highest precision and visual wonder.

Step into the world of refined elegance and technical mastery with the Cartier Calibre De Cartier Flying Tourbillion Volant 18kt Rose Gold Special Edition timepiece. This exquisite watch harmonizes luxurious aesthetics with precision engineering, embodying Cartier's legacy of sophistication.

The striking 45mm case crafted from 18kt Rose Gold exudes opulence and strength, framing a Silvery White Galvanized Satin-Finish Sunray Guilloché Dial. Delicate yet bold, the dial showcases the mesmerizing dance of time through Blued-Steel Sword-Shaped Hands, gracefully tracing the hours and minutes with unparalleled finesse.

At the heart of this horological marvel lies the Manufacture Manual Winding Mechanical Caliber 9452 MC Movement, a testament to Cartier's dedication to superior craftsmanship and innovation. The Flying tourbillon complication steals the spotlight, captivating onlookers with its graceful C-shaped tourbillon carriage elegantly indicating seconds, a visual symphony of technical prowess and aesthetic allure.
