One Pocket Watch To Rule Them All

One Pocket Watch To Rule Them All

One thing can be said: Cartier knows how to make a good looking pocket watch. The Cartier Skeleton Pocket Watch (Grand Complication) is the latest masterpiece from the 167 year old company.

For each of the past few years at the SIHH show in Geneva, Cartier has unveiled a “grande complication” (i.e. a highly complicated) wristwatch featuring a tourbillon, perpetual calendar and monopusher chronograph. The trend will continue this year – for 2012, Cartier has drawn inspiration from Cartier pocket watches produced in the 1930′s to produce the eye-catching piece you see here. The pocket watch is crafted in white gold, with skeletonized Roman numerals, something that we have also seen the past few years in some of Cartier’s higher end pieces.

Only ten of the pieces will be made with an additional 5 diamond-set ones to come out later next year. Very limited edition, as well as rare and expensive materials make this one timepiece whose price no one needs to ask for.
