Continuing with their mysterious hours’ concept, AAA Cartier Replica continues to explore mysterious complications to play with illusion and the perception of time and the Cartier Masse Mystérieuse is the result of that.
Activated by the movement, which is usually housed in the clock’s base, these discs then turn the hands, one for the minutes hand and the other for the hours hand. So that the illusion is perfect, the edges of the discs are concealed by the hour circle.
But this time Cartier has gone above and beyond to create a special movement that took 8 years to develop to make things even more impressive. The Cartier Masse Mystérieuse Replica is a spectacular watch that turns to the rhythm of an original movement. The magic of a mobile calibre condensed into a semi-circle, transformed into a skeletonized oscillating weight.
Things To Know About The Watch
