A new range of distinct watches feature mechanical innovations and designs that will appeal to the most sophisticated among us A simple twist of a winding crown can transform Cartier's new Triple Santos 100 from one piece of artistic beauty to another. The watch has three different faces set in an extra-large dial. Face one features a plain traditional background with 12 Roman numerals. Diamonds and black sapphires arranged as a chessboard form the dial of face two, while face three displays an engraved tiger's head. The patented mechanism that changes the faces, involves a set of tiny gear trains that swivel the prisms on the face in sequence. Equipped with a double-barrel movement, the men's watch has a power reserve of 72 hours. Its white gold case is set with round diamonds, accompanied by a black alligator-skin strap. Only a limited edition of 20 pieces is available. Cartier has announced its Ballon Bleu de Cartier Flying Tourbillon, which bears the Geneva seal hallmark, their first creation to be given this honour. In crafting the finishes on the tourbillon movement, Cartier ensured that all the parts were durable, thus satisfying the Geneva seal hallmark's requirements on precision, reliability and movement beauty. The 46mm tourbillon watch incorporates the watchmaking culture of Geneva into contemporary design. Cartier's jewellery watch collection is applauded for its craftsmanship, stringent quality control and creative design. This is especially evident in the Le Cirque Animalier de Cartier Collection. Inspired by popular animals from different parts of Asia, the motifs of pandas, elephants and tigers are each featured in three different models. The panda, illustrated in diamonds and black sapphires, is seen holding a black enamel watch dial, highlighted with bamboo stalks and leaves, reminding people of the giant panda's original birthplace in Sichuan, China, where bamboo grows in abundance. The next watch in the collection features a gem-set baby circus elephant balancing himself on a ball. The pink-gold ball decorated with diamonds is featured on the partially decorated guilloche dial. Comfortably lying on a sun-like dial in yellow gold, a lively tiger looks set for action on the third watch in the collection. Several common features the watches in the collection share, include the animals' eyes in emeralds, and round cases and dials surrounded with diamonds. Each model is restricted to 50 pieces. The Cartier Libre Collection plays with shapes and designs. In the Perles de Cartier, four circles of different sizes are arranged with the largest one partially or entirely embracing the smaller ones. Large Roman numerals are displayed on the largest mother-of-pearl dial. The Neoud diamond watch imitates the flat knot tied to the waist of traditional Japanese costumes. The knot's centrepiece displays a horizontal watch with two big Roman numerals at 3o'clock and 9o'clock. The Froissee watch features the shape of an open fan embedded with a triangular quartz dial at the centre. A single Roman numeral appears at 3o'clock.
