Cartier Unveils Two Mysterious Luxury Watches at SHIHH 2013

Cartier unveiled two new remarkable timepieces at the 2013 SIHH. They are both part of the same series, called Mysterieuse: the Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Double Tourbillon, and the Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Double Tourbillon with Geneva Seal.
What makes them so mysterious is the fact that the tourbillon carriage seems to have no connection to the rest of the mechanism, and yet it works with excellent precision, leaving no room for reproach. The tourbillon is placed upon a rotating sapphire disc, which completes one revolution in five minutes. Consequently , the tourbillon doesn’t only rotate once every minute, but it also travels around the dial, completing a full journey in 5 minutes.
The concept is truly impressive, and the materials used for this project were carefully chosen to meet the highest standards of luxury, sturdiness, and durability.
