Today, I would like to introduce the most recent creation by Cartier, the Calibre de Cartier Diver Watch. This watch is indeed amazing, but had a totally unexpected release earlier this year. As most know, Cartier has produced some of the upmost exceptional masterpieces of jewelry and horology in the world, but within the 167 years of Cartier’s existence, the Calibre de Cartier Diver is the only serious diver’s watch in the company’s timekeeping lineage. Ever since its unveiling at SIHH 2014, this diving instrument has had an endlessly growing presence in the collections of many world-renowned divers and in the collections of significant members of the wristwatch community.
You certainly cannot take this watch to the depths of the Marianas Trench, but it can sure take an underwater beating. A matter of fact, you can take this baby a good 300 meters, roughly 1000 feet, without causing harm to the components of the watch. The bezel is coated with ADLC and features Super-LumiNova time-control displays that really light up the ocean.
The watch is powered by Cartier’s own, in-house, high-grade 1904 MC automatic movement. Offered in three metal combinations, the Calibre de Cartier Diver appeals to all segments of the market. Please visit www.cartier.com or your nearest authorized Cartier retailer or boutique for more information.
