The Cartier Manufacture has created a new timepiece that is a true symbol of horological innovation.

The oversized Cartier Santos Triple 100 watch delivers a great surprise due to the first-ever rotating-dial mechanism united with a skeleton movement : Turn the crown, and you can select between three unique identities!
The three different dial faces of the Cartier Santos Triple 100 watch appear in succession: from a classic face featuring 12 Roman numerals, to a face completely paved with round diamonds and black sapphires in a marvellous jeweller’s chessboard, followed finally by a face engraved with a tiger’s head, which required over 40 hours’ work.

The team of watchmakers developed mobile prisms in 18K white gold. The prisms get activated simultaneously with help of the crown. They are operated by a miniature-gear-trains system that makes them swivel gradually in one direction or the other, thus allowing the Cartier watch reveal three different dial faces.

Moreover, the timepiece with the case crafted in 18K white gold is entirely set with precious stones.
It will be available to most avid watch connoisseurs in a numbered limited edition of only 20 pieces.
