Cartier – Privé Tonneau XL Skeleton Dual Time

By Roberta Naas

Known for its high complications, Cartier skillfully blends the art of skeletonization and specialty shapes (something else it has long mastered) in this new watch. The elegant timepiece was inspired by the brand’s first tonneau-shaped watch, which was presented in 1906. Part of the brand’s Privé collection, which honors Cartier’s historic timepieces, it’s powered by an all-new, in-house, skeletonized manual-wind movement, the 9919 MC Caliber, developed for this case; it’s even curved for a perfect fit.

Instead of using two movements like the original (one to set the home time and the other a secondary time zone), the new watch runs on a single movement with the gear train in a single line.

Pressing the crown at 4 o’clock sets the second time zone. The sapphire crystal and caseback enable an exceptional view of the finely finished components. Just 100 numbered pieces will be made.

Price: $78,500 in platinum,
