Cartier, Montblanc, Vacheron Constantin

Cartier’s newest watch is powered by the Caliber 9912 MC automatic winding movement. Created and built in house, the 290-part movement (with 48 hours of power reserve), offers a retrograde moon phase hand. The watch depicts, from dawn to dusk,the sun and moon that follow one another across the upper portion, with the moon phase moving from the new moon to crescent and full against a deep blue lacquer. The watch is crafted in 18-karat white gold and features a bezel set with 68 brilliant-cut diamonds.The dial is set with 118 brilliant-cut diamonds and 28 sapphires. $94,000.
Montblanc unveils the ExoTourbillon Slim 110 Years Limited Edition watch. The watch features a hand-painted dial depicting one of three continents: North America, Europe or Asia. Each dial takes a full week to complete. Each watch houses the patented, redesigned in-house Caliber MB 29.24 with micro-rotor. The watch also features a mesmerizing ExoTourbillon at 6:00—a constantly moving mechanism that looks as though it is floating as it spins and that compensates for errors in timekeeping due to the effects of gravity on the wrist. $ 40,000

Each watch features a unique combination of either open-worked gold carvings and engravings, gem setting, enameling and lacquer work, and each is built in a limited edition. $ 69,000
