The Rotonde de Cartier flying tourbillon offers a classic reinterpretation of the 9452 MC movement, specially produced to meet the criteria of the Geneva Seal. Complementing more contemporary designs such as the Calibre de Cartier or the Ballon Bleu de Cartier, this discreet, refined watch is the smallest in its category with its 40 mm diameter offering exceptional comfort on the wrist. A blend of of circles and curves, it has been carefully designed to give power to the watch without making it heavy and to underline its exceptional technical characteristics : the C-shaped tourbillon carriage appears to “fly” on the bridges as if weightless, above the dial.
