Line, volume, movement: the Cartier style rests on the strength of the design, of which the Clé de Cartier model, created in 2015, is one of the very latest watchmaking examples. It owes its name to its winding crown, the shape and clicking action of which are inspired by traditionally wound clocks, which Cartier now transposes onto the wrist, thus inventing a new watchmaking gesture.
A symbolic example of Cartier ingenuity, it introduces the Maison's first skeleton movement with automatic winding, the caliber 9612 MC, scientifically designed so as to enhance its aesthetic appearance.
