Here Cartier reinvents a famous complication from its watchmaking heritage: the Rotonde de Cartier Day and Night watch with retrograde moon phases, caliber 9912 MC. Day and night are indicated by a disk covering half of the dial that rotates over 12 hours and features a sun and moon motif. In harmony with the sky, the Rotonde de Cartier watch indicates the phases of the moon with a retrograde hand in the form of a lunar crescent. Such creative motifs and shapes rendered with stylistic flair are a signature of Cartier style.
