The Cle de Cartier Replica Mysterious Hour watch takes everything the Cle is, and turns it up to 11. While it may not have been blindingly obvious at first, what made the Cle really stand out was its balanced, beautifully proportioned look – and the Cartier Cle de Cartier Mysterious Hour replica watch further evolves on that by playing with the rule of thirds and other basic rules of design and geometrics.
As its name implies, the Cartier Cle de Cartier Mysterious Hour replica watch features Cartier’s “mysterious hours” indication which may have been around for a long time, but somehow, here, just utterly fails to show its age. The funny thing is that when compared to the – rather numerous – other pieces from the brand which comprised this funky time indication, this Cartier Cle de Cartier Mysterious Hour replica watch may be the first piece where it feels and looks as though it was an integral component of the design, and not a gimmick that stands above every other part.
The Cartier Cle de Cartier Mysterious Hour replica watch comes in either pink gold or palladium and is 41mm wide. I believe this small amount of extra size was necessary to accommodate the wider movement. The case is still pretty thin at just 11.25mm. Interestingly, from a case material perspective, the Cartier Cle de Cartier Mysterious Hour replica watch in 18k pink gold as well as 950 palladium. For those craving a bit more “bling,” there is a full pave diamond version – also in palladium.
The Cartier Cle de Cartier Mysterious Hour replica watch was one of our absolute favorites from Watches & Wonders 2015 because, while it managed to pack some impressive technical details, that didn’t stop it from being a beautifully wearable and elegant dress-replica watch. Both in terms of tech specs as well as the coherence of its aesthetics – this is the “RS” model in the Cle range of watches.
