Now with a meteorite dial and a pink gold case, this openwork model also features Cartier’s signature skeletonized and elongated Roman numerals. The 47mm Rotonde de Cartier replica Earth and Moon features two indications: local time in the upper section with a second time zone represented by a 24-hour disc, while below is a lunar display with a tourbillon that actually plays the role of the moon when the on-demand moonphase indicator is activated.
The wearer presses the push-piece at four o’clock to display the moonphase, which appears as a disc that slides across to conceal the tourbillon cage. The crescent formed reproduces the moon’s shape. Accuracy is calculated with an error of just one day every 126 years. The push-piece at two o’clock provides a simple adjustment of the second time zone indication. Cartier will make fifteen of these cheap replica watches.
In 1926, a trunk filled with precious stones and jewelry arrived at the Cartier jewelry workshops in Paris. The Maharajah wished to have the contents reset in the Parisian style. To carry out the work he chose Louis Cartier replica, the quintessential Paris jeweler, whom he had met in India. The result was a unique piece comprising 2,930 diamonds with a combined weight of 962.25 carats: five magnificent Art Deco diamond-studded platinum chains adorned with seven large diamonds in a variety of cuts (from 18 to 73 carats), suspended in a mesmerizing cascade.
