The history of Cartier’s Mysterious Hour Watch can be traced back to the beginning of the twentieth century. The earliest timepiece equipped with a mysterious movement is Cartier’s Mysterious Clock. It was born in 1912 and has more than 100 years of history. Later, Cartier successfully applied this ingenious mechanism to the watch.
The mystery of Cartier’s mysterious movement is that the hands are not directly connected to the movement, but are fixed on a pair of sapphire crystal wafer disks equipped with outer gears. The movement drives the disc. The disc drives the pointer to rotate. One disc rotates once per minute and the other disc rotates once per hour. As a result, the traditional hours and minutes display on Cartier’s hollow dial presents an elusive mysterious effect, which is fascinating.
