Manual, platinum, leather

REF: W1556210

Mystery clocks, with hands that appear to float free on the dial, have been part of the Cartier heritage for more than a century. Today, Cartier has developed the Mysterious Double Tourbillon that appears to float free at the heart of the Rotonde de Cartier watch. The sapphire case back of the Rotonde de Cartier also reveals a part of its movement, allowing watch lovers to admire the finish of its components and observe that the caliber 9454 MC, with a thickness of 5 mm, carries the “Poinçon de Genève”.
