The two newest faces in the collection have the same highly personal codes and exude the Drive de Cartier man’s love of authenticity, free spirit and imagination. Here is all the stunning art de vivre that was showcased by Cartier at this year’s Pitti Uomo trade fair in Florence’s Palazzo Gondi.
Moon Phases: This watch is fitted with the new Manufacture movement 1904-LU MC. A distinctive moon-phase complication displayed at 6 o’clock tracks the cycle of new moons, half-moons and full moons. This extraordinarily precise complication is known as “astronomic”, needing to be corrected by one day every 125 years.
The Drive de Cartier Moon Phases watch stays true to the signature aesthetic of the Drive de Cartier collection: wearability. With a convex curved glass case and uncluttered white guilloché dial, it is available in pink gold or steel. This timepiece lends an unaffected touch of sophistication to everyday mechanics.
Extra-Flat: Less is more in the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat watch, whose slender profile hugs the wrist, ensuring a suave, discreet accessory beneath the sleeve of a dinner jacket. Minimalism is the standout feature of this watch. At less than 7 mm thick, it is 40% slimmer than the original model. Clean lines are enhanced by the sunray satin-finish dial, flat sapphire crystal, and finely crafted alligator-skin strap, which stylishly showcase the cushion-shaped case of the watch. Understated design, an extra-flat profile and refined proportions make this a perfect choice for the first men’s evening watch in the collection.
Retail Price: $19,500 USD for the Moon-Phase in rose gold, $7,850 USD for the Moon-Phase in steel, $14,300 USD for the extra-flat in rose gold. For more info. on Cartier, Click Here.
