Winding a Cartier watch is important in keeping it functional and accurate, in addition to looking great. It causes the internal spring to tighten, and the slow natural release of this energy causes the internal movement to keep ticking over effortlessly. A good full wind of a manual Cartier watch will ensure around 36 hours of perfect time, but some may wish to wind their watch daily. To make the art of winding a Manual Cartier watch part of everyday life is something that many Cartier lovers choose to do. It allows the wearer to escape into the Maison’s world of exquisite watch manufacture, appreciating every tiny detail as a work of art. Most of Cartier’s in-house developed movements can be admired via a sapphire crystal glass exhibition caseback. This feature makes appreciating these fascinating masterpieces, even more appealing.
