In 2013, Cartier’s launched its Double Mystery Tourbillon, in which the flying tourbillon carriage is set into a rotating sapphire disk -both the tourbillon itself, and the disk which carries it, seem to turn without any linkage to the rest of the movement. Since both the sapphire “mystery disk” and tourbillon rotate, this is technically a double tourbillon -the inner carriage turns once per minute, and the outer, once every five minutes. Mystery clocks were originally invented by replica cartier watches, the 19th century illusionist who’s considered the father of modern stage magic, and we think the Double Mystery Tourbillon’s a tour-deforce of watchmaking prestidigitation that would have made him proud.
Also of note was the mentioning of the upcoming Samasource Give Work Gala to be held on November 2nd, this Friday! While the dinner and auction tickets are sold out, come by for the after-party and hear a special performance by Estelle, singing her Grammy-winning hit “American Boy, ” and get your dancing shoes on for DJ Atish. It will be held at the Regency Ballroom in San francisco and tickets can be purchased here.
In tandem with developing new watches for its Fine Watchmaking Collection, Cartier and Carole Forestier have also pursued innovations in materials and basic watch design which yielded, in 2009, the remarkable concept watch known as ID One. ID One was designed to be the first mechanical watch in the world to need no adjustment for accuracy–either at initial http://www.gavinwatch.com/breitling-replica-uk.html assembly or during actual operation–by a watchmaker. To achieve this, it employed new materials, including a form of synthetic diamond dubbed Carbon Crystal, and a hairspring made of an exotic glass/ceramic composite called Zerodur.
Does anyone know what the cost of replacing a quartz movement would be for a Must de Cartier watch or has anyone been in a similar situation? Reason why I ask is because if it would cost several hundred then i think I would prefer to purchase a new Cartier for her as an alternative. Just thought the Cartier would be a nice gift and surprise as well as being something recycled in a sense. Cartier introduced the soon to be discontinued Santos 100 Carbon in 2009. Coated in black amorphous diamond-like carbon (ADLC), the watch was quite a departure from the typical Cartier look. I wrote in my SIHH report of 2009: “This is a very unusual step for Cartier, both in terms of materials and design; I cannot recall any other Cartier watch with a treated case. ” But more notable than the look is the useful properties of the coating, which are not widely understood.
Which simply speaking imparts the properties of diamond to the surface coating – Cartier uses for the Santos 100 Carbon is unusual in its durability. As explained to me by Dr Zian Kighelman, who has a PhD in material science and was formerly the senior manager for innovation at Cartier manufacture, ADLC’s properties function on two scales, hardness and elasticity, with each being inversely proportional to the other. So if hardness increases, elasticity falls.
