24 Feb Cartier Demonstrates High-Jewelry Watchmaking Expertise With Unique Ruby Watch
This particular beauty is one of more than 20 high-jeweled watches unveiled by the brand at SIHH 2017. It is magnificently set with 15 round Burmese rubies weighing 24.93 carats and diamond baguettes on the bracelet that wrap around the wrist and embrace a tear-drop-shaped watch dial. The cuff-style bracelet watch emulates the look that Cartier mastered in the Art Deco era — geometry, symmetry and masterful use of color. The watch is powered by the manually wound Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 — the smallest mechanical watch movement to date.
