    New Cartier Watch – It’s Complicated

    Posted on January 27th, 2015 by Joe G

    Each year, Cartier’s watchmaking department comes up with new ideas, designs and technical advancements to add to its collection of fine watches. This year it will introduce the Rotonde de Cartier Grande Complication Skeleton, the most complicated watch ever produced by the company.

    Each complication, including a minute repeater, perpetual calendar, and flying tourbillon, is laid out and visible to the wearer “in a highly skeletonized movement.” Although the watch is complex, its winding is automatic, a rare feature for a watch if this type. It has at least 578 parts in total.

    While Cartier is generally thought of as a jewelry brand, it has been making watches for over 100 years. The watchmaking team wants to stick to its mechanical watchmaking history, but continues to advance and keep people in anticipation for what’s to come.

    If you’re interested, the Rotonde de Cartier Grande Complication Skeleton is limited to 50 pieces, each selling for $620,000.

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
