Rotonde de Cartier displays the moon phase watch day and night in an elegant and contrasting style, showing the moon phase and time through a graphic divided in a rigorous aesthetic style. The upper half of the dial shows day and night shifts and time, and the lower half shows moon phases.
Innovative dial design inherited from the brand’s great style
The moon phase display is a complex feature with a long history in Cartier. Starting from the comet clock created in 1913, it has always been the inspiration for some of the brand’s exquisite masterpieces. Today, the Rotonde de Cartier watch with moon phase display with retrograde hands shows day and night moon phase watches. With a unique two-dimensional dial, it continues the artistic heritage of Cartier.
Time passes between rising and falling moons. Exquisite pictographic sun signs and slightly abstract moon signs alternately indicate the time, and the moon phases are displayed at an elegant rhythm.
The Rotonde de Cartier day and night moon phase watch is driven by the 9912 MC automatic mechanical movement, which shows the passage of time in a comprehensive and clear way. This guiding time reading method allows the wearer to distinguish between day and night time and moon phase changes at the same time.
Cartier strives to innovate, with an unprecedented large-diameter display window, let the timeless day and night display function shine.
The universe is condensed between the square inches of the watch. Cartier sublimates the elegance and symbolic art with a meniscus-shaped retrograde hand indicating the change of the moon phase.
