Cartier Unveils Grande Complication Pocket Watch

First seen at Watches and Wonders 2023, Cartier’s new Rotonde de Cartier Grande Complication lives up to its name with three grand complications: the skillfully skeletonized pocket watch combines a minute repeater, a flying tourbillon, and a perpetual calendar in a precious white gold case. Despite the technical complexity of the automatic 9506 caliber, which consists of 578 individual parts, it has a diameter of 56mm and a height of only 12mm.

The skeletonization reveals many fascinating details of the inner mechanism, such as the gongs and hammers of the minute repeater. Cartier stages this statement piece in a frame of rock crystal, black obsidian, and white gold. The owner can either attached a chain to carry it via a special eyelet or use it as a table clock.

Due to its technical and artisan complexity, the Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Grande Complication is limited to five pieces with pricing available upon request.
