Watches&Wonders 2014 in Hong Kong: Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Second Time-Zone Day/Night equipped with in-house calibre 1904-Fu Mc

 

I don´t ask you all to like the CARTIER Pasha de Cartier 42mm Skeleton Dragon Motif Watch, but please have a look at the stunning execution… Very cool!

Cartier invents a Manufacture mechanical movement skeletonised in the shape of a dragon – that fabulous and legendary creature, a symbol of power and prestige that has been a guest of the Cartier menagerie ever since the Maison established its first links with China back in 1888.

Visible though its sapphire crystal, the calibre 9617 MC with manual winding is exhibited like a creature of fantasy, set with 233 diamonds, with a marquise-cut tsavorite on the front and entirely engraved on the back.

The dragon-motif skeleton perpetuates a savoir-faire initiated with the first bridges carved in the form of Roman numerals in the Santos 100 watch, the model that established skeletonised movements as one of the most symbolic features of Cartier watchmaking.

    I don’t think that men watches should go too small because then it will look like a ladies watch . 43 mm is a good size in my opinion for a man’s watch and would be good even on a small wrist. I should know because I have a small wrist and wear a 43 mm watch but I don’t know if I would be able to go any larger though ?
