The Cartier Clé Mysterious Hour watch It is actually a combination of three existing Cartier elements.
First, is the also new-for-2015 Clé de Cartier copy watch collection case. Next, is the in-house made Cartier caliber 9981 MC which was debuted in 2013. And last, is a presentation of Cartier’s particular form of semi-skeletonized dial that we have seen from almost the beginning of Cartier’s higher-end “haute horology” collection of timepieces.
Made from 158 parts, the 4.61mm thick 9981 MC Cartier Replica movement operates at a modern 4Hz and has a power reserve of 48 hours. That is rather nice considering that the movement itself is actually a crescent. Much of the interior space is open, dedicated to the sapphire crystals that the hands for the hours and minutes are placed upon. This interior section of the watch is otherwise transparent, offering a view right through the dial to the other side.
Some of the movement is visible through the dial and the rest can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback window.
It is very important to note that while the standard Cartier Clé fake watch 40mm wide, the Clé de Cartier Mysterious Hour is 41mm wide. I believe this small amount of extra size was necessary to accommodate the wider movement. The case is still pretty thin at just 11.25mm. Interestingly, from a case material perspective the Clé Mysterious Hour will be available in 18k pink gold as well as 950 palladium.
Cartier isn’t wasting any time at all fleshing out the Clé collection with an impressive assortment of both men’s and women’s models as well as mainstream and very high-end exclusive versions. In less than a year Cartier Replica Watchhas released Clé models ranging from simple time-only automatics to Clé watches with flying tourbillons.
