Cartier’s Asymetrique Watch Joins the Privé Collection

Cartier is adding to its Privé Collection with a fourth watch—the new Cartier Tank Asymetrique. The Privé Collection originally ran for a decade, from 1998 to 2008. When 2015 hit, Cartier relaunched the collection, offering new versions of the Carsh, Tonneau, and Cintree watches. The Asymetrique is also a return to a classic design, one that was first launched by Cartier in 1936.

Cartier THE NEW ASYMÉTRIQUE WATCH

The Asymetrique lives up to its name with a design that uses a parallelogram rather than the traditional circle or rectangle. The idea behind the design was to make it easier to read the time by placing the 12 at the highest point when you turn your wrist. For the relaunch, Cartier is making the watch available in platinum, pink gold, or yellow gold. Each of the metals will receive only 100 pieces. The watch will feature Cartier’s cabochon-set winding crown. The case measures 47.15mm by 26.2mm and is 6.38mm thick. The dial colour depends on the metal used—the pink gold will get a grey dial, the yellow gold a champagne dial, and the platinum a silver dial. All the dials come with printed Arabic numerals. The strap is either grey or brown alligator leather.

For the movement, Cartier is using a 1917 MC calibre that provides hours and minutes. It has a 38-hour power reserve and is a manual winding movement. It has 19 jewels and operates on a 3 Hz frequency. No word has been given on when the Asymetrique will be available, but we’ll be looking forward to it.
