Cartier Dive Watches
It has been noticed that designer Niklas Bergenstjerna re-imagines some modern dive watches with a vintage bronzed look. Initially inspired by the Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition Dive Watch, Niklas imagined what some some contemporary divers would look like if bronze were the material of choice rather than steel.
Among Cartier’s a lot of new product introductions at SIHH 2016 is a new version of its first dedicated dive watch introduced in 2014, the Calibre de Cartier Diver, which will soon be available with a blue dial and bezel insert. The 42-mm case is available in stainless steel or rose gold and offers a water-resistance of 300 meters. The watch is powered via Cartier’s in-house movement, Caliber 1904.
Ready to dive in style? If you had to ask me what Cartier watch I'd want it would perhaps be something in the Calibre collection. If you had to ask me what Cartier watch I'd want and budget was not an issue, it would possibly be the Calibre de Cartier Astrotourbillon. A few years ago in 2010 when the Calibre collection was released, it was to be the brand's new flagship men's model in a round case that featured the brand's new in-house movement as well.
When two new diver's watches were unveiled at last year's SIHH fair in Geneva , the surprise of the show was the Calibre de Cartier Diver - not least since it brings a performance-level sports watch into a maison formerly renowned for its effortless, dressy elegance.
This new Diver adds some serious heft to the Calibre de Cartier collection, primordially launched in 2010. Waterproof to 300 metres , the in-house 1904 MC movement is included within an 11mm deep case, making the timepiece one of the slimmest diver's watches on the market.Hands, indexes and dive time indicator are all applied with a Superluminova coating, as is the roman numeral XII, assuring that even when totally submerged you'll never forget you're voyaging beneath the waves wearing a Cartier.
