Rotonde de Cartier Grande Complication watch
Drawing on all its watchmaking expertise, the Cartier Manufacture introduces an exceptional skeleton caliber with some rare technical characteristics. The caliber 9436 MC combines a tourbillon, perpetual calendar, single push-piece chronograph and eight-day power reserve.
If it is wound once a week, this movement will indicate the date, day and month with no correction needed until the year 2100. Skeletonizing the movement and decorating it by hand requires almost 200 hours of work by our finest craftsmen, followed by another 200 hours by our master watchmakers for its assembly. As a final touch, the mirror polish added by hand to the tourbillon bridge in the form of a C affirms the Cartier signature.
