Watch Review: Rotonde de Cartier

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT. From the invention of the first pendulum clocks, the makers of timepieces have tried to create mechanisms that cope with the problems of the Gregorian calendar in order to display not only the time but the calendar information as accurately as possible, a problem which watchmakers still face today

The Rotonde de Cartier perpetual calendar chronograph watch offers a rare luxury: it combines the measurement and display of short periods of time with a mechanism whose gears possess the ability to compensate for the irregularities of the Gregorian calendar. The watchmakers of the Cartier Manufacture have incorporated these features into a carefully restrained yet precious model in white or pink  gold.
