Besides Fine Watch Making there is more, lots more! Many collectors feel it’s a pity that “Collection Privée” came to an end. But there is great news, what we loved in CPCP, is still, or should I say again, in Cartier’s collection. The LC Tank XL that was announced last year, is now available and there are some cool and very classic watches new in the collection.
My absolute favorite of the mainstream collection is the
RONDE LOUIS CARTIER XL
Small seconds dial @ 10
9754 MC mechanical movement

Very classic, right dimensions and so beautiful with that sub dial at the 10!
The watch comes without diamonds, but there are diamond versions available, like this one with diamonds on the lunette, on the lunette and on the centre of the dial, or on the lunette and the full dial.
And as good as the Ronde is the Rotonde de Cartier. Different case, different dial and very much in line with the Classic Cartier style.
ROTONDE DE CARTIER 42mm
Small seconds dial @ 5
Date window @ 7
Power Reserve 8 days
Caliber 9910 MC Mechanical, this movement was also used for the
Tortue 8 Days.
BALLON BLEU de CARTIER, Extra Plat, 46mm
The sporty Ballon Bleu lost weight and has a new very exiting super flat case. It gives the watch a completely different look and makes it very dressy. Ballon bleu was never on top of my dreams, but the slim version, changed my opinion completely.

BALLON BLEU de CARTIER, Extra Plat, 46mm, Blue dial, Limited Edition
Very limited and very cool looking.
I am afraid this one will be sold out very fast.
Stunning “Blue effet Soleil” dial!

Caliber 430 MC Mechanical
Case: 950/1000 platinum
Diameter: 46 mm
Crown: fluted and set with a sapphire cabochon
Crystal: sapphire

CALIBRE de CARTIER with Steel bracelet. I am quite impressed, I have to say that I have not had the watch in my hands yet, that will be tomorrow, but the bracelet looks very masculine and fits the watch from a visual point of view, so well.

PASHA 42mm
Two very nice Pasha watches, which bring the total of new Pasha watches,
including the Fine Watch Making Tourbillons, at 4 now.
addon-7.phpaddon-8.php
Pink gold with chocolate dial or pink gold with classic white dial and 8011 MC automatic movement. Day & Night window @ 6 and a Grand date @ 12.
The steel version will be a winner and a fantastic addition to the Pasha line.
