Remembering childhood was a very interesting thing, because the impressive memories are often those embarrassing scenes, secretly mischievous and ridiculous behaviors desperately trying to grow up. However, in addition, when I was a child, I still can’t forget the bells that ring every hour in the grandmother’s room and the grandmother opened the small door under the wall clock with the key to wind the wall clock. The wall clock, which should have been eliminated by time, seemed out of place in the modern decoration style, but the grandmother regarded it as a treasure. Maybe that represented her memories.

Cartier, which has always been innovative and avant-garde, has put its search and inspiration in the past, and put the key on the time of watch winding and time adjustment. Combining this source of inspiration, Cartier reinterpreted the modern crown and designed a winding crown similar to the winding method in history. This new crown inlaid with sapphire became the hallmark of this series, which was therefore named the Clé de Cartier series. After years of recollecting my childhood, it is like having a lilac dream. The new Clé de Cartier series watch with a bright fuchsia alligator strap brings such a dreamy feeling.
The time does not linger for a second. We are getting farther and farther from childhood, and the memory seems to be getting more and more blurred. I ca n’t remember why I smirked that year and why I fell that year. The Cartier Keys (Clé de Cartier) series is full of nostalgic design. It seems to recreate the era of using the key as a winding chain and time adjustment tool, which brings us to childhood.
This watch inherits the elegant style of the classic key series. The flowing lines, the round and full oval case shape, and the integrated lugs in one go form a refined and beautiful style. The 31 mm watch case is made of 18K rose gold and is ideal for slender wrists. The watch dial uses a guilloché dial with a sunray radiation effect. The dial is set with 10 brilliant-cut round diamonds as hour markers, with sword-shaped blue steel hands, and a calendar display window at 6 o’clock.
The key-shaped crown is inlaid with a sapphire as the embellishment. The crown is made of 18K rose gold, which is the finishing touch of the entire watch. If you want to wind the watch or adjust the time, you need to unscrew the crown. At this time, the crown is like a winding key with an ancient clock. After winding or adjusting, the crown returns to its original position with a pleasant ‘click’.
The watch is equipped with a shiny fuchsia alligator leather strap and an 18K rose gold pin buckle for easy and comfortable wearing.
This watch is equipped with the new Cartier 1847MC refined self-winding movement, which was developed, manufactured and assembled by the watchmakers at the Cartier Swiss Watch Workshop. This movement is named after Cartier’s founding year in 1847, which shows Cartier’s dedication and effort for this movement. This movement is decorated with Geneva ripples, with a diameter of 25.6 mm and is self-winding in both directions, providing a power reserve of up to 40 hours.
Summary: Only superb watchmaking technology can withstand the test of time, and only a watch that can withstand the test of time can be used as a treasured treasure. Cartier, with a history of nearly 170 years, has continued to innovate the exterior design without giving up its unremitting pursuit of precision. The official price of such a dreamy watch full of memories is 99,500 yuan, which is worthy of being cherished.
