2011 may be the “Astro” year of Cartier Replica. Last year’s Cartier Rotonde Astrotourbillon was so popular that there will be at least two new “Astro” watches in 2011. One will be the Calibre Astrotourbillon (with Rotonde’s existing movement), and this one is completely different. The “Astroregulateur” (Astroregulator) has an escapement that is attached to the automatic rotor – mounted on the front of the dial.
The Astroregulator has an escapement and an auxiliary seconds dial that rotates freely with the rotor. The second hand still wraps around the dial every minute, but the dial itself rotates. According to Cartier Replica Watches, this system should theoretically work like a tourbillon (it itself works more or less theoretically. The escapement is adjusted in a vertical position. Using the system, gravity keeps it sharp “up”, The watch is in a vertical position. It doesn’t matter when the watch is aligned horizontally.
Zenith’s Christophe Colomb watch works the same way – but the watch can be used in any direction. Cheap Cartier Replica Watches may be more wear-resistant, although the two watches are not completely competitive (as far as I know). The movement inside the watch is the Cartier manufacturer MC 9800. Great, it is an automatic (duh, with a rotor in front) and the time dial is off center to the top half of the dial. The power reserve of the movement is 80 hours. The back of the Astroregulator is very beautiful with a double Cartier “C” pattern.
