When luxury, elegance, high-end technology and the know-how get together, then you can expect something truly magnificent. That is exactly the word that comes to mind when you see a new Tank MC Skeleton watch that, when compared to the last year’s model, has even a more striking look, thanks to its two-tone finish on the open-worked movement. This stunning masterpiece of the haute horology makes a powerful distinction with its skeletonized body that presents hour markers which are at the same time bridges of the movement. Cartier’s novelty will be officially presented at the upcoming Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva.
New Cartier Tank MC Skeleton watch has the same size as the last year’s model that is presented in palladium (Ref. W53100026). Its rectangular 43.90 mm x 39.10 mm case is made of pink gold and adorned with a nicely polished finish. However, the highlight of this timepiece is the skeletonized mechanism with a dark gray ruthenium coating and polished pink gold bevels. Each part of a hand-winding Calibre 9611 is visible on both sides of the case. This high-end mechanism is individually numbered and offers a power reserve of 72 hours.
Just like the palladium model, the new Tank MC Skeleton features pink gold bars with gray ruthenium coating, shaped like Roman numerals to serve as hour indicators, but more importantly, to provide a powerful visual effect. Instead of the signature blued steel sword-shaped hands, the novelty uses polished pink gold hands. Cartier did not miss to use another signature feature, a blue cabochon on the top of the crown. Sapphire crystal covers the case on both sides.
Cartier Tank MC Skeleton comes with a brown leather strap that gives the final touch to its refined design. The watch will cost around $50,000.
