For 2011, Cartier has unveiled some of the most stunning pieces they have ever created. Each watch is a marvel of craftsmanship and beauty. Precision and looks are successfully combined to produce some of the most sought after watches in the world.
The case shapes of the 2011 watches vary from round to square. A select few feature intricate mosaics on the face, including motifs of turtles and crocodiles.
Amazing complications also feature in the new Cartier timepieces. In addition to the ever popular tourbillons, Cartier has introduced some innovative components to their wristwatches. The Rotonde de Cartier Astroregulateur does far more than just tell time, as does the Calibre de Cartier Astrotourbillon. Several of the 2011 models also feature perpetual calendars, which are always elegant and practical.
A common feature on these Cartier luxury watches is an open works, or skeletal design. This style calls attention to the clean, precise inner workings of a timepiece. Some of the watches with this face type feature large Roman numerals that add to the modern look. Others use small numbers to allow the works to be seen without distraction.
The case metals used on the Cartier 2011 New Models vary a little from those of previous years. In addition to 18k yellow, white and pink gold, new metals and alloys have been used to create these timeless watches. These include Niobium-Titanium, Titanium-ADLC, pure Titanium and Platinum.
The straps on these eye-catching watches are made of high quality leather that compliments the watch color.
Those looking for a stunning, modern new watch need look no further than the Cartier 2011 New Models collection.
