Last year at SIHH Cartier presented the men's Drive de Cartier collection featuring an all new cushion shaped case which found quickly a lot of fans around the globe. This year, Cartier added two more models with the Cartier Drive de Cartier Moon Phases watch and the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat.
Drive de Cartier Moon Phases is fitted with the new Manufacture movement 1904-LU MC. A distinctive moonphase complication displayed at 6 o’clock tracks the cycle of new moons, half moons and full moons. This extraordinarily precise complication is known as “astronomic”, needing to be corrected by one day every 125 years. The Drive de Cartier Moon Phases watch stays true to the signature aesthetic of the Drive de Cartier collection: wearability. With a convex curved glass case and uncluttered white guilloché dial, it is available in pink gold or steel. This timepiece lends an unaffected touch of sophistication to everyday mechanics.
Less is more in the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat watch, whose slender profile hugs the wrist, ensuring a suave, discreet accessory beneath the sleeve of a dinner jacket. Minimalism is the standout feature of this watch. At less than 7 mm thick, it is 40% slimmer than the original model. Clean lines are enhanced by the sunray satin-finish dial, flat sapphire crystal, and finely crafted alligator-skin strap, which stylishly showcase the cushion-shaped case of the watch. Understated design, an extra-flat profile and refined proportions make this a perfect choice for the first men’s evening watch in the collection. The Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat watch is fitted with a mechanical movement with manual winding 430 MC. Available in pink gold, or in a limited edition of 200 pieces in white gold.
