First launched in 2010, the Calibre de Cartier is known for its powerful lines, rugged case, and architecture that boldly reinterpret Cartier’s design codes such as Roman numerals and a flanged bezel. The timepiece is now available in a diving version, the Calibre de Cartier Diver, available in May 2014.
What makes it a diver’s watch? The Calibre de Cartier Diver’s unidirectional turning bezel prevents any alteration of the dive-time indication, designed with 120 notches and with extremely visible markers to signal each five-minute period. Its superluminova feature ensures that you are able to clearly read it deep below the surface. Water-resistant to 300 metres, the Calibre de Cartier Diver is fitted with a thick crystal, a screw back, oversized seals, and a screw-in crown. And even after spending 50 hours at a depth of 30 centimetres at 18°C – 25°C, the timepiece continues to function.
Available in all-steel or a pink gold version on a black rubber strap, the Calibre de Cartier Diver is powered by the 1904 MC self-winding movement, the first to be developed and assembled by Cartier’s watchmakers known for its perfect chronometric stability to run with precision.
