A watch unlike the vast majority of Cartier timepieces out there, limited to just 30 pieces, this just might be Cartier’s most expensive (non-precious stone laden) watch ever. The Rotonde Grande Complication Skeleton is a unique beast — a fighter in Cartier’s ongoing battle to proclaim itself as a serious watch maker. A battle that Cartier is quickly winning with a slew of complex and beautiful mechanical timepieces that it has been releasing over the last several years.
In addition to having a tourbillon, monopusher chronograph and jumping perpetual calendar, the 9436MC movement has been completely skeletonized for an immaculate view of the movement’s operation. This gives the dial an impressive stance, overlaid with traditional looking Cartier blued steel hands. The watch is set in a 43.5-mm wide case crafted entirely from platinum. The crown, also in platinum, has a sapphire crystal cabochon. Each of the 30 pieces in this limited edition are priced at $510,000.
