    Walking Silently: Cartier’s Fine Watchmaking Workshop

    I would like to ask who is the most courageous and courageous of this year’s two exhibitions. Cartier’s fine watchmaking workshop is definitely a touch of conservative and prudent watch industry under the haze of the economic crisis!
         Looking back from the beginning of 2007 to the present, Cartier has been steadily on the road, and has repeatedly made new contributions: from skeletonized movements to floating tourbillons, from celestial movement tourbillons to concept watch ID One, from timing to jumping time, from GMT to multiple time zones, From perpetual calendars to more practical annual calendars this year, to three questions with clear voices, breathtaking hollow complex pocket watches, and so on, good works are dazzling and surprising. In just five years, Cartier has continued to work quietly, filling and perfecting his vacancies in the field of fine watchmaking one by one, performing a wonderful show from scratch, to the pressure of the audience, and stunning four seats! If I had to choose one, I would choose a high-complexity hollowed pocket watch, because it would be as historic as Cartier’s first wristwatch more than a century ago to start a new era.
         In the era of wristwatches, the pocket watch with a long chain of more than five hundred years was chosen to be hung in a pocket with a long chain peg. At a specific moment, the treasures in the bag were taken out in a ritual action, which occurred in the eyes of everyone with envy. contact. What a precious way to interact with time for collectors who want to break the norm?
         The oversized 59.2mm white gold case, the pebble-shaped curved sapphire crystal glass, and the signature hollow carved white Roman numerals give a glimpse of the subtlety inside the movement. ‘C’ -shaped bridge classic tourbillon, one-button chronograph, perpetual calendar, and power reserve of up to eight days: experienced players love everywhere. It is worth mentioning that all 457 parts of the 9436MC manual winding movement are all decorated and polished by hand. This step alone consumes more than 200 man-hours, and the assembly and adjustment of the movement requires more than 200 man-hours; The “tour de force” process of Roman time scales requires at least 100 man-hours; 300 chamfers must be performed by professional decoration masters, and even the most complex parts take 10 hours … enough to imagine how this is a strict and patient Hardship?
