Classically modern

Cartier calls its 21 Must De Cartier W10110T2 men’s watch a “modern classic.” That is a good assessment. Really, this watch combines the modern with the classic. At first glance, it looks like a timeless, classic Cartier watch. A second longer and you see the modern elements beginning to emerge. Aside from the blued steel hands and the blue synthetic spinel cabochon set in the crown, the watch is monochromatic with the color ranging from white to silver to stainless steel. The face design of concentric circles highlights this monochrome scale. With this modern designing matched by the classic Cartier aesthetic, it truly is a “modern classic.”

The stainless steel stationary bezel is the outermost circle and it contains Roman numeral hour markers. Just inside is a thin circular band with Arabic numeral minute markers on a white background. This band rims the innermost and final circle, which is blank steel highlighted by the blue hands. The face is covered by a scratch resistant sapphire window. The 21 Must De Cartier W10110T2 men’s watch has Cartier caliber 690 quartz movement and it is water resistant to 100 feet.

The 21 Must De Cartier W10110T2 men’s watch retails for $2,800 at Cartier and authorized resellers.
