 By: SJX : January 15th, 2012-14:45
Cartier Fine Watchmaking at SIHH 2012 comprises a solid and varied range. At the very top is a new calibre in the minute repeater, but there are also useful new entry level timepieces, like the new annual calendar with an eminently practical display. We’l...  

I like what I see so far

Movement decoration aesthetic

 By: Moses : January 15th, 2012-22:42

I liked the Cadran Love, though found the display-back a bit perplexing. Seeing more of the technology behind the Masse secret makes it a more interesting timepiece, it isn't just a regular movement flipped upside down. A

The Masse Secrete is interesting

Another take on the peripheral winding Patek did in the 70s and Bucherer more recently. - SJX

Becoming more of a fan of Cartier. They definitely have a unique brand design identity and some of these designs are quite attractive! The annual calendar looks interesting design-wise, would be nice to see it in person to comment on the 'business' of the...
