The firm lines, solid case and unique structure, the Calibre de Cartier watch series launched in 2010 is full of confidence and masculinity. It is a new generation of Cartier’s iconic masterpiece. . The dial uses distinctive Roman numerals and flanged bezels to reinterpret Cartier’s classic design elements in a strong and resolute style. In 2014, the launch of the Calibre de Cartier diving watch will open a new chapter for this series of watches.
Demonstrating pure masculine style, taking into account daily wear and extreme environments, the Calibre de Cartier diving watch not only perfectly displays Cartier’s style, but also meets the ISO 6425 technical standard for ‘diving watches’, which stipulates Eight reliability specifications and a series of extremely demanding test procedures.

Waterproof standards under strict monitoring
Unidirectional rotating bezel, water-resistant to 300 meters, superluminova hands and time markers, Calibre de Cartier diving watch complies with all international standards of diving watches, so it can be engraved on the case back ‘Diver’s watch 300 m’ Watch 300m).
Unidirectional rotating bezel
To prevent accidental rotation or improper operation, the bezel can only be rotated in one direction. Its 120-slot design (40 teeth and 3 points) allows the adjustment accuracy to be accurate to half a minute, and a clear voice prompt can be heard when rotating. In addition, to further improve readability, time stamps are used to clearly identify every 5 minute intervals.
Display in the dark
Even in the dark, it can be clearly displayed and displayed with the Calibre de Cartier diving time control indicator (hour and minute hands, presets and small seconds dial) with superluminova coating. Read time.
Water-resistant to 300 meters
When diving, the watch is subjected to extreme stress and extreme external environments (salt water, thermal shock, etc.). In response to these conditions, the Calibre de Cartier dive watch is equipped with thickened mirrors, oversized washers, screw-in casebacks and crowns to ensure water resistance up to 300 meters. The 24-hour sodium chloride (30 g / l) solution immersion test at 18 ° C to 25 ° C proved the watch’s resistance to salt water immersion. In addition, after 50 hours of immersion in a 30 cm water depth from 18 ° C to 25 ° C, the watch’s performance remains perfect.
Reduction of case thickness: technical and aesthetic challenges
The watchmakers at Cartier Watch Workshop have designed a true diving watch with a case thickness of only 11 mm, which not only achieves a balanced size ratio, but also maintains the comfort of daily wear. As a perfect combination of diving watches and Cartier’s exquisite watchmaking technology, the new Calibre de Cartier diving watch is exquisitely contrasted with frosting and polishing, and the ADLC carbon coating with a notch design (amorphous diamond-like carbon coating) ) The rotating bezel inherits the bloodline of the Calibre de Cartier watch. In addition, the increased size of the luminous Roman numerals XII also highlights this series of iconic design elements.
Calibre de Cartier dive watch in stainless steel or rose gold, with a black rubber strap, inherited all the characteristics of the first Calibre de Cartier watch launched in 2010. The same stiff lines, the same solid case, and the same 1904 MC workshop-finished automatic mechanical movement.
1904 MC: a masculine work with the spirit of watchmaking in the workshop
Calibre de Cartier opens a new chapter in diving watches
The 1904 MC movement, born in 2010, is the first self-winding mechanical movement developed and assembled entirely by the watchmakers at Cartier Watch Workshop. Its name is highly symbolic, meaning the pioneering spirit of Louis Cartier, who was his close friend and pilot Alberto Santos-Dumont in 1904. Created a wrist watch, one of the earliest modern watches in the world. More than a century later, the 1904 MC movement opened a new chapter in Cartier’s watchmaking.
This 11½-centimeter movement is equipped with a dual barrel, which ensures that the mainspring torque can maintain excellent constancy for a long time, thereby pushing the stability of travel time to the extreme.
This movement is equipped with a precise adjustment system and a stop-second mechanism, which can perfectly adjust the running time and ensure accuracy. The 1904 MC oscillating weight is equipped with a central ceramic ball bearing system, which gives the movement excellent durability and shock resistance. The innovative pawl system and two-way winding mechanism make watch winding easier and more convenient.
Superb grooming of secrets
With the relentless pursuit of beauty, the movement modification master created this movement with the finest craftsmanship. The delicate modification process of the 1904 MC movement demonstrates Cartier’s spirit of excellence and excellence in creating the Calibre de Cartier diving watch, a watch that combines professional needs with daily wear.
