In this first self-winding perpetual calendar movement to be created by the Manufacture, two characteristics demonstrate the astonishing creativity of Cartier: the optimised legibility of the day and date functions and the originality of the perpetual calendar display.
These features, unique to the 9422 MC movement, can be viewed through an impressive open-work dial: the days of the week are indicated by a retrograde hand, the date is shown in large figures around it, and the month and year counter is located at 12 o'clock.
A superb achievement in fine watchmaking that runs with exquisitely crafted details and echoes the timeless form of the Tortue watch – one of the great Cartier shaped watches designed in 1912. During the 1920s, it became a legendary example of complication watchmaking by Cartier.
Characterised by audacity and inventiveness, Cartier’s watchmaking history reflects a unique state of mind: “jeweller of kings and king of jewellers”. Its renown is bound up in the tradition of excellence to which it is heir. Cartier was a forerunner in the use of platinum in jewellery and one of the pioneers of watchmaking.Find out more >
