It was back in 2010 that Cartier initially presented the Rotonde Astrotourbillon Replica watch. It was a time when 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 Swiss Cartier Replica Astrotourbillon 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. With that said, the motion of the balance wheel in a circular manner is at least… tourbillonesque. I mean, let’s face it, tourbillons simply add complexity and artistry to a Fake Watches movement. You should dispel any notions you have about them making watches more accurate.
Cartier followed up the original Rotonde Astrotourbillon by putting the same movement inside of a Calibre case.Because I liked the Calibre case a bit more than the Rotonde case – given my predilection for sports Cheap Cartier Replica – that was a very strong offering, in my opinion, and I was happy to see Cartier extending the Astrotourbillon concept into more watches. With that said, I have yet to see a Cartier Astrotourbillon in the wild, and I look forward to seeing one soon, given the simple pleasure of seeing the astrotourbillon seconds hand in action.
Another year later, in 2012, Cartier released a very interesting version of the Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon with the Rotonde de Cartier Replica Watches Astrotourbillon Carbon Crystal. This saw the implementation of some unique materials born from Cartier’s ID projects into the Astrotourbillon. Moreover, this is the first time Cartier began to experiment with some skeletonization on an Astrotourbillon-based timepiece. The Rotonde Astrotourbillon Carbon Crystal was an amazing watch, and it led to the 2015 Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon Skeleton that we have here.
