Rotonde de Cartier skeleton flying tourbillon watch
Calibre 9455 MC
A superb technical achievement, this new version of the Rotonde de Cartier watch introduces a spectacular mechanical movement with manual winding: the calibre 9455 MC skeleton flying tourbillon. Irrefutable avant-garde style combined with watchmaking tradition
An ultra-contemporary Cartier movement in which function is part of the form. An aesthetic revolution expressed by a movement that also acts as a dial. A work of art highlighted by a skeletonised main plate and bridges that create striking Roman numerals. Its graphically stunning design features the numerals XII, III, and IX, which frame the carriage of the flying tourbillon at six o'clock. The interplay between solids and voids reveals a movement driven by a skeletonised barrel with a visible spring. It is a living artwork enhanced by a range of precious hand-produced finishes: angled bridges, satin-brushed sides, and circular-grained wheels. The Cartier calibre 9455 MC is stamped with the Geneva Seal and delivered with an individually numbered certificate of origin, which confirms that the movement meets the criteria of excellence set out by the Office for the Voluntary Inspection of Watches from Geneva.
An in-house design for renewed elegance
A 45 mm white-gold case and a lofty transparency characterise a watch whose powerful design is combined with delicate finishes to produce a subtle and harmonious play on proportions. The Rotonde de Cartier skeleton flying tourbillon watch invents an exquisite elegance that captures the very essence of fine watchmaking.
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
