SIHH 2016: Cartier undresses her key


Cartier today unveiled a version of its Skeleton Key model. The exercise brought all the pitfalls of the skeleton wrongly presented as the mere hollow out an existing movement. Lecture live from the manufacture of La Chaux-de-Fonds.
Drill is not playing! More than any other, Cartier love sculpt shapes. At almost exactly the round watch is almost the exception. Just think Crash, Barrel, Key, Tank, Turtle and many others to realize. With a wrench, Cartier had locked her round in a barrel, and replaced its round crown with a trapeze. The exercise, though perilous, had largely convinced his first admirers, those of SIHH 2015. Yet even a year later, just installed in stores, Cartier Key is offered a drastic slimming cure. Objective: Key … a skeleton.
In La Chaux-de-Fonds in the last few days, Cartier recalled with a beautiful transparency have in no way invented the skeleton, but owning a patent which guarantees him a single use: to perforate the bridge to draw indexes. Many creations of the house were attributed this process: Santos, Pasha, Rotunda, etc. The Key takes their logical sequence. Same principle, same result?
To achieve this, Cartier engaged in a sleight of passes: the substitution of native caliber of the key by a cal. 1904, that could be called “base class” of the house. It was then expanded from the 26.2 mm to 31.05 mm. Objective: to adapt to the larger case of its new housing (41 mm). Thus, the caliber indeed occupies all the space allocated to it and can be skeletonized leisure.
Still, the cal. 1904 and transplanted remains automatic. In a skeleton movement is a problem: what good perforate a complete movement if its rotor bottom side occult alone 50% of its surface? Cartier has completely solved the problem by recessing this mass: there remains only its central anchor point and its periphery. From there, alas, another problem arises: how to keep the power of a heavy oscillating weight … which is no longer reduced to a lightweight skeleton? Cartier has again solved the problem by changing the initial mass of material from tungsten to gold, much denser and heavier. Who said the skeleton was only to widen an existing movement?
