A Man’s Choice–CALIBRE DE Cartier

Just like other brands, Cartier spent a great deal of time designing the dial on Calibre. Super Roman numbers time indexes and bar-shaped time scales balance the second dial on rest part of dial. The only thing I could not figure out is the big date aperture. We have seen the IWC Pilot has the same design, but personally, I do not prefer a suite watch has such a big date aperture. Minute track scales outside the bezel makes watch look harmonious. But, I do not like any other stuff on the bezel as I think such a move may break that harmony. Calibre de Cartier is definitely a man as it has a 42 mm of case. Lug and that thick crown protection remind me of Panerai Luminor.

Looking from the side, you can see the screw crown protection and belt. At the top of the winding crown, you will see a spinel indicating that this is a Cartier watch. In addition, if you look from the other side, semi-sphere sapphire is protected by the smooth structure. Calibre de Cartier has different choices for the belt. You can choose a leather, steel version, etc. At the end of alligator belt is Cartier folding buckle.

In my view, Cartier’s buckle is quite common. It is a simple folding buckle. Although those days it does not fall off accidently, I still worry about that. The 1904 PS-MC movement is posted here, and from the picture you will find it amazing, and if you take a look at the real thing, that may get you hooked. A normal movement with three hands has full-size rotor and Cotes de Gen¨¨ve. The plate has the same processing. I don’t like the a see-through movement that has nothing to show, but I bet there are a group of fans that really enjoy their movement, even though the movement is nothing complicated.
