Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Day And Night Moon Phase Watch

Rotonde de Cartier watch presents two major watchmaking complications on the dial: retrograde moon phase indicator and day and night display. From dawn to twilight, the sun and moon alternate from left to right above the dial. Beneath the dial, a retrograde hand elegantly shows the moon’s gloomy sky. To complement these two complex functions, Cartier is specially equipped with a dark blue lacquered dial and gold powder, and the moon phase pattern is paved with diamonds and sapphires.

┬áSince 1912, the moon phase display has become Cartier’s mastery and pride in fine watchmaking complication. At that time, Cartier created a clock work called ‘Comet’ or ‘Planet’, which presented elegant and gorgeous time display through high jewelry and fine watchmaking. Since then, Cartier has launched a number of timepiece works based on mathematical rules. Through the Rotonde de Cartier day and night moon phase watch, the sky is closely connected with the art of time travel through the earth, reflecting Cartier’s pioneering spirit of continuous exploration of the aesthetics of timepieces.
