W1553851: Make the Jump to this Cartier Timepiece!

Cartier's Jumping Hours Watch

Experience style & uniqueness in this Men's Cartier Jumping Hours Watch.

Cartier is known worldwide for brilliance in watch design, flawlessness in structure and uniqueness in both women and men’s individual styles. When looking throughout any Cartier timepiece collection, disappointment will be the last thing you find. I suggest you browse with a specific style in mind, otherwise you could be overwhelmed with admiration for every piece.

If you are looking for a watch that is far from typical, but still an exceptional and easy-to-read timepiece, I think you have found your perfect match. The W1553851 Rotonde de Cartier Jumping Hours Men’s Watch starts off with stunning style. The black transfer Roman numerals are set on a guilloche (ornamental pattern) stimulating slate-colored dial. The satin finished silver style grid features a sunray effect and the Cartier name, placed just slightly below the center of the face. The strap is alligator black with an 18K white gold adjustable deployant buckle. The crown set is circular-grained and displays a gorgeous sapphire cabochon. There are also twenty-two jewels that help accentuate this magnificent watch.

The case is 42mm in diameter, 11.6mm thick and set in 18K white gold with scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The back is also set in sapphire to ensure a lifetime of perfection. It is water resistant in up to 100 feet of water with a mechanical manufacture movement and a manual winding caliber 9905 MC. The watch itself is 31.8mm in diameter and 5.10mm thick.

The main feature of this W1553851 Rotonde de Cartier Jumping Hours Men’s Watch is actually not the fashion or traditional mechanics, but the “jumping hours” action. Though jump hour watches operate in a very similar way to standard watches, the main difference is the way in which time is displayed. A jump hour watch shows the time by means of digits in a window. These digits are located on a wheel that is spun by the mechanism, making only the correct hour visible with the minutes trailing along the circumference of the face. This particular watch has 28,800 vibrations/hour and about 65 hours of power reserve.

Only the highest approval has been given to the W1553851 Rotonde de Cartier Jumping Hours Men’s Watch and it is sure to be given by you as well. Available at Cartier’s website or any Cartier boutique.
