Calibre de Cartier (2010)
They kicked things off with the Calibre de Cartier, the one that set the standard for all succeeding Calibre watches. It possesses all the qualities one will ever need in an elegant sports watch: a large and solid case, curved lugs that sit comfortably on the wrist and an extremely legible dial.
Even with its considerable presence, the Calibre was instantly recognizable on the wrist as a Cartier. Readable and neat, their dials consist of sword-shaped hands, Roman numeral and baton indices, a running seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, and a vertical date window at 3 o’clock. There are also railroad patterns on the outer rim for an added vintage touch.
