This month, Haute Time will feature 24 gift ideas leading up to this year’s winter holidays. Inspired by the watchmaking industry, these gifts will be dedicated to collectors of all things hand-crafted. Join us every morning on Haute Time to discover a new idea for that special someone this winter.
Cartier created a major surprise at SIHH 2015, when it unveiled the Clé De Cartier, a brand new collection featuring a new shape and movement. And the French Maison didn’t play it safe with its tunrkey watch either. Cartier developed, produced and assembled a brand new movement for the Clé De Cartier. Its name — 1847 MC — pays homage to the year of the Maison’s Creation (MC) by Louis-François Cartier. Featuring an automatic mechanism with dual-direction winding, the robust Caliber 1847MC boasts a 42-hour power reserve. The Clé De Cartier collection comes in various sizes with 22 models available for men and women, including this 35mm timepiece presented in pink gold, priced at $41,300. It also welcomes a much, much more expensive white gold flying tourbillon with diamonds, priced at $158,000. Made for men and women, this 35mm timepiece houses caliber 9452 MC, a manufacture movement with Geneva Seal and a power reserve of 50 hours.
