Cheap Replica Cartier Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré Pendant Watch

“When the commissionaire had gone, Holmes took up the stone and held it against the light. It’s a bonny thing,’ said he. ‘Just see how it glints and sparkles. Of course it is a nucleus and focus of crime. Every good stone is. They are the devil’s pet baits. In the larger and older jewels every facet may stand for a bloody deed. This stone is not yet twenty years old. It was found in the banks of the Amoy River in southern China and is remarkable in having every characteristic of the carbuncle, save that it is blue in shade instead of ruby red. In spite of its youth, it has already a sinister history.’” – Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure Of The Blue Carbuncle

This might seem a rather ominous way to start off a look at one of the most spectacular objects we saw at the Salon this year: the Cartier Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré, a gem-set pendant tourbillon watch, and a unique piece. But I mention it as a way of underscoring the irrational passion that gemstones can arouse. Now, this is an horologically interesting creation – the movement, exact fake Cartier caliber 9463 MC, is a double mystery tourbillon, like the Rotonde de Cartier Double Mystery Tourbillon wristwatch – and to say that the mechanism is incidental to the appeal of the Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré would be doing its ingenuity an injustice.

But while not incidental, mechanics in this case is definitely here not to take center stage, but to lend itself to the larger, overall aesthetic effect of the timepiece. Think of it as a wearable mystery clock.

The appeal of precious gems is one of the best examples I can think of, of really purely irrational desire. Diamonds are of course just the tip of the iceberg in this respect; colored stones especially seem to arouse the beast in people (as Holmes remarks in The Adventure Of The Blue Carbuncle, “carbuncle” being an old English term for any colored stone – generally red). The most famous blue precious gem by far, and an exemplar of just how much aura these stones can have, is the famous, and notorious, Hope Diamond, around which legends have sprouted like mushrooms after a thunderstorm. The Hope Diamond is said to have originally adorned the eye of an idol, and naturally, is also said to carry a curse. Cheap replica Cartier watches online.

Certainly, the fates of many of its owners are both lurid and varied; as reported by the New York Times in 1911, they include King Louis XVI (who owned the stone from which the Hope was cut: the French Blue) and others, who were, “torn to pieces by a mob,” “thrown from a precipice,” “murdered by her sweetheart,” and, perhaps most colorfully, “torn to pieces by wild dogs in Constantinople,” (although “died in misery and want” – the fate of one Francis Deaulieu – has a fine, morbid, Late Victorian ring to it).

However, no such aura surrounds the Cartier Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré – though it does have, as the gemological mate to the horological fantasia that is the double mystery tourbillon, a quite magnificent blue stone as its centerpiece. The gem is a sapphire, nearly 26 carats in weight, which forms the detachable pendant to the main, diamond encrusted body of the timepiece.

The latter is in the form of a stylized butterfly. The sapphire was mined in Ceylon – long a source for sapphires; Ceylonese sapphires can vary considerably in depth of color, though the most desirable are a saturated cornflower blue.

It’s always interesting, too, to reflect on the very pedestrian nature of the basic ingredients of something so valuable. Diamonds, after all, are nothing but “crystallized charcoal,” as Holmes remarks later in The Adventure Of The Blue Carbuncle. (Diamonds, being carbon, will also burn, as it turns out, although the ignition temperature is high enough that demonstrations usually use an external oxygen source.) Sapphires aren’t carbon, but they are another pretty ordinary material: corundum, an aluminum oxide, which is generally used as an industrial abrasive. It’s also very hard, of course, which is why synthetic sapphire’s so popular for watch crystals (and sometimes cases as well).

The case and chain of the Cartier Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré are in rhodiumized white gold.

White diamonds, white metal (either white gold or platinum) and blue sapphire are all both symbolic of Cartier, and a part of its heritage of design. Lots of folks like to object to the blue cabochon on the crown of modern replica Cartier watches but asking Cartier to abandon the cabochon would be like asking Rolex to abandon the crown (and the fact that Cartier retains it in its modern watches is something I admire about them – exactly the sort of tangible connection to a company’s history one wants).

At € 1.2 million, it’s already sold, and whomever wears it is going to have one of the most irrationally desirable timepieces of the year. It was quite literally the last thing we saw at the Salon, and just as well; anything else would have been anticlimactic.

New Cartier Crash Series Lady’s Limited Edition Diamonds Dial Replica Watches

The shaped watch (anything that isn’t round) is a Cartier innovation that is as much a part of its creative heritage as the panther motif, or for that matter, the wristwatch itself – the first wristwatch on record, the Cartier Santos, was square. In 2015, the brand began to revisit its shaped watches, starting with a platinum skeletonized version of the Crash watch, followed a year later with a pink gold version. Last year, it resurrected the square-shaped Panther – which had been discontinued in the early 2000s – introducing a full collection with a new movement and a slightly revamped bracelet. In January at SIHH, Cartier revisits the Crash again with a new model, and introduces four new pieces in the Baignoire series of mostly oval cases. The new models are all part of the Libre collection. All but the new Crash contain quartz movements.

The Cartier replica Crash watches were introduced in 1967, inspired by the remnants of a client’s Baignoire Allongé watch that had been mangled in a fiery car crash. The watch was an interpretation of the surrealist art popular at the time. It was revisited in the early 1990s and again in 2013 as a ladies’ collection. In 2015, it was given haute horlogerie status as the Crash Skeleton, with an openworked manufacture movement designed to fit the distorted case shape. The new Crash Radieuse takes the Crash to the next level, with a seemingly crumpled case and dial, with barely-visible stretched Roman numerals. The case is yellow gold and it contains the manually-wound caliber 8970 MC. It is a numbered limited edition of 50 pieces.

The Baignoire Débordante is designed as a starburst, with openworked white gold spikes emanating from the center of the oval dial. The stems are set front and back with diamonds and black spinels, with the spinels focused at the top and bottom ends. The watch, a limited edition of 50 pieces, contains a quartz movement.

The Baignoire Infinie is a four-layer composition of concentric rings radiating out from the center dial. The rings are set randomly with baguette diamonds, white mother-of-pearl, black Tahitian mother-of-pearl, and black spinel. The circle appears to be cut off at the sides. The movement is quartz and it is limited to 20 pieces.

The Cartier fake Baignoire Étoilée is a jeweled watch with a delicate bracelet composed of small round and square-cut gems randomly set in an openworked link structure. The upended square shape of the gems is repeated as a pattern on the dial of the east-west oval case, which is set with a double of row of white diamonds on top and a double row of black spinels below. The 18k white gold bracelet is set with diamonds and black spinels. The movement is quartz and it is limited to 15 pieces.
