Rotonde de Cartier Perpetual Calendar watch
40.5 mm, automatic, 18K white gold, leather
The Rotonde de Cartier watch is a traditional interpretation of the 9422 MC perpetual calendar movement that partners creative designs such as the Tortue or the Calibre.
The elegance of the Rotonde de Cartier case makes this a more classic approach, yet it shows real creative daring in its optimized displays that clearly stand apart from ordinary displays. It has the special characteristics of the perpetual calendars in the Cartier Fine Watchmaking Collection: the days of the week are indicated by a retrograde hand, the date is marked in large numbers around the dial and the month and leap year counter is at 12 o’clock.
