1904MC movement-the birthday of the world watch
As Cartier’s first self-winding mechanical movement, the Honor-equipped 1904MC movement not only demonstrates Cartier’s latest achievements in watchmaking technology, but also a gift to the birth of the world watch.
In 1904, the birth of the world’s first wristwatch, Cartier Santos, brought the global watch industry into a new era of modernization. In the name of this landmark era, the 1904MC movement inherited the courage to make breakthroughs more than 100 years ago, and condenses this great tradition that was devoted to research and development in the watch industry for more than 100 years. Each vibration of the balance wheel symbolizes Cartier’s tireless exploration and advancement in each step of the professional characterization.
The 1904 MC movement combines technicality and aesthetics, perfectly meeting the highest requirements of Cartier watchmaking. This new movement with a diameter of 11 ½ centimeters has a dual barrel inside, and is equipped with a precise adjustment system and a stop-second device to achieve fine adjustment of the movement and ensure accurate timing under any conditions. ; A ceramic ball bearing system is installed at the center of the movement wheel to ensure stable operation when subjected to strong external force; a novel pawl system replaces the traditional reversing wheel as an automatic winding mechanism, which greatly improves the winding Chain speed, and the use of an innovative two-way winding system makes the movement more comfortable to wind the movement and provide kinetic energy; with the eternal pursuit of beauty, the movement’s upper bridge and the movement are decorated with classics The smooth Geneva ripple decoration (côtes de Genève), even the watch face hidden under the movement parts, is still polished with a circular texture, striving for perfection and perfection.
Accurate travel time, stable performance, innovative winding system, and exquisite detailed design are unified in this first self-winding mechanical movement developed and manufactured by Cartier. It contains Cartier’s tradition of extreme innovation for more than a century, adhering to the infinite pursuit and firm confidence in high-end watchmaking technology, adding glory to the ‘pioneer of watchmaking’ for more than 100 years.
Ultimate Design-Subtle Harmony of Power and Beauty
Drawing on Cartier’s deep watchmaking essence, the new men’s watch, with its overall modern design and detail retouching, has built a wonderful balance of power and beauty for men.
The thick and solid case, the three-dimensional raised bezel, the powerful large-diameter dial, and the oversized Roman time scale XII on the dial show the masculine atmosphere of men; at the same time, the soft and smooth bezel is 28 degrees Naturally inclined, it transitions to a dial decorated with curved grain patterns through 120 fine scales, supplementing the atmospheric pen and ink with exquisite and detailed details, which is surprising.
