Santos De Cartier Skeleton watch in pink gold


At SIHH 2018, Cartier continues advanced new aesthetics in watchmaking. The combination of excelsior spirit and breakthrough innovations embodies two sides: One is the exquisite and delicate skeleton movement; the other is the light and mysterious movement.

Skeleton and mystery clever collocation sets off the sense of beauty of the iconic movements and creates masterpieces with multiple processes. As a good model of Cartier watchmaking technology, the mysterious movement was born in 1912. It’s the result of the joint efforts of Louis Cartier and Maurice Coüet (a great watchmaker) . Equipped with the mysterious movement, the first Cartier table clock was named Model A, whose inspiration came from Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin, the father of modern magic. In honour of the classic mysterious movement, Cartier launched three new works in this tear: Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Double Tourbillon, Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Day & Night and Santos De Cartier Skeleton in pink gold.
