Break Through The Traditional Aesthetics of Round Watches

In order to stay true to the original shape, Cartier needed to achieve two technological innovations. First of all, in order to maintain the slender shape of the watch case, all the gears of the gear train must be linearly listed between 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. Then, the shape of the movement must be modified to fit the curved contour of the barrel-shaped case. The best replica watches at captainthewatch.co.
 

The bezel of the Tonneau watch is made of a single piece of material, without redundancy and discontinuity. The bends, lugs and the case are completely natural. The dial is between a rectangle and an oval, and the case is slightly curved. This design makes the watch fit the wrist better. The "ordnance screws" that decorate the lugs have been in use around 1910, and this Tonneau watch still retains this detail.

Different from previous dual time zone watches, which usually have a dial with dual hands, this watch directly divides the time between the two places into two parts. The upper part is the home time, and the lower part is the time in the second time zone.

The time information on the hollow bridge is clear and easy to read. The winding crown is at 2 o'clock and the crown at 4 o'clock is used to adjust the time in the second time zone. At the same time, Cartier also hollowed out the movement, and the crown of the watch was decorated with two blue cabochons to make the watch look more refined.
