New Cartier Watch – It’s Complicated

Posted on January 27th, 2015 by Goldman Buyer

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 recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
