It was back in 2010 that Cartier initially presented the Rotonde Astrotourbillon watch. It was a time when Fake Cartier was only beginning to really show off its cred as a in-house watchmaker in attempts to woo an audience of higher-end collectors who mostly saw the company as a maker of fine jewelry, women’s watches, and men’s status pieces with great designs but simple movements.
The Cartier Astrotourbillon Replica Watches China was just that – a new type of whimsical complication that offered a stellar viewing experience. What is an astrotourbillon? It is essentially a balance wheel mounted to a seconds hand. It isn’t a true tourbillon in the sense that the balance wheel does not spin in a cage on its own axis.
Cartier followed up the original Rotonde Astrotourbillon by putting the same movement inside of a Calibre case.Because I liked the Cartier Replica Watches Calibre case a bit more than the Rotonde case – given my predilection for sports watches – that was a very strong offering, in my opinion, and I was happy to see Cartier extending the Astrotourbillon concept into more watches.
Another year later, in 2012, Cartier released a very interesting limited edition version of the Rotonde de Best Cartier Watches with the Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon Carbon Crystal. This saw the implementation of some unique materials born from Cartier’s ID projects into the Astrotourbillon.
