The newest timepieces in the Cartier Drive de Cartier Collection have arrived at Watches of Switzerland.
The Drive de Cartier collection, created in 2016, is designed for the man who flaunts an independent mind and a keen sense for fashion. Looking effortlessly stylish as he saunters through life, whether dressed down in casual chic or spruced up in black tie, the Drive de Cartier man is dapper on every occasion.
And his watch boasts just as many sides to its personality. All models in this collection feature exquisite watchmaking movements. The Drive de Cartier hours, minutes and seconds watch, the second time zone model and the flying tourbillon model have now been joined by two new models: the Drive de Cartier Moon Phases and the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat.
The Drive de Cartier Moon Phases is fitted with the new Manufacture movement 1904-LU MC. A distinctive moon- phase complication displayed at 6 o’clock tracks the cycle of new moons, half-moons and full moons. This extraordinarily precise complication is known as “astronomic”, needing to be corrected by one day every 125 years.
The Drive de Cartier Moon Phases watch stays true to the signature aesthetic of the Drive de Cartier collection: wearability. With a convex curved glass case and uncluttered white guilloché dial, it is available in pink gold or steel. This timepiece lends an unaffected touch of sophistication to everyday mechanics.
Less is more in the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat watch, whose slender profile hugs the wrist, ensuring a suave, discreet accessory beneath the sleeve of a dinner jacket.
Minimalism is the standout feature of the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat. At less than 7 mm thick, it is 40% slimmer than the original model. Clean lines are enhanced by the sunray satin-finish dial, flat sapphire crystal, and finely crafted alligator-skin strap, which stylishly showcase the cushion-shaped case of the watch. Understated design, an extra-flat profile and refined proportions make this a perfect choice for the first men’s evening watch in the collection.
The Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat watch is fitted with a mechanical movement with manual winding 430 MC. This model is only available in precious 18k gold.
Both these models are available to view and purchase immediately at our Sydney, Melbourne and Perth boutiques.
