This version of the Rotonde de Cartier watch can be distinguished by its technical characteristics. It updates the caliber 9455 MC flying tourbillon skeleton, a spectacular mechanical movement with manual winding in which function is part of form. It is a work of art highlighted by its skeletonized bridges and main plate, which combine to create imposing Roman numerals. The interplay of solids and spaces reveals a movement driven by a skeletonized barrel with a visible spring. The movement is stamped with the Geneva Seal and accompanied by an individually numbered certificate of origin attesting to the fact that it meets the criteria of excellence established by the Office for the Voluntary Inspection of Watches from Geneva.
