Pre-SIHH 2014: Cartier Calibre de Cartier Dive Watch
By Jovan Krstevski
Here is a sneak peak of the new Calibre de Cartier Diver from Cartier, which will officially be introduced end of next month at the SIHH 2014. The watch has an unmistakable masculine character and is the first serious diver, with ISO 6425 from Cartier.
Water resistant to 300 metres (1,000 feet), the stainless steel case of the Calibre de Cartier Diver has a diameter of 42 mm with a thickness of just 11 mm. The screw-in faceted crown is set with a synthetic spinel. The case alternates satin-brushed and polished surfaces. The unidirectional DLC-coated bezel has 120 notches so allowing precise adjustment to half a minute.
The dial has been designed for excellent legibility in the dark and as such has been applied with Swiss SuperLuminova on its sword hands and Roman numeral hour markers. There’s a large date aperture at 3 o’clock and a sub-dial at 6.
The watch is powered by a Cartier in-house automatic 1904-PS MC caliber with 27 jewels and a power reserve of 48 hours.
It comes on either a black rubber divers strap or with a steel bracelet. A rose gold version is also available. Prices start from EUR5500 for the steel version with a rubber strap.
