The Manual Wind: Calibre de Cartier Diver

manual wind calibre de cartier diver dive watch sihh 2013
Over the past ten years there has been one segment that has grown to become a staple almost every watch brands lineup; the dive watch.  Though a little late to the party, Cartier dove right in with their Calibre Diver.  Cartier took their newer design, the Calibre de Cartier, and added what every functional dive watch requires; a rotating bezel.  For a brand that defined the dress watch, Cartier has done well with their interpretation of diver sport.

At 42mm in diameter, the Calibre Diver has more of a presence on the wrist than it measures.  The well proportioned ADLC coated bezel with SuperLuminova markings add a nice contrast against any of the case metal offerings.  Offered in Stainless Steel, Steel and Gold, and Rose Gold; with metal bracelet and rubber straps as well. This is a truly versatile sport timepiece.  A highly legible dial sits above Cartier’s manufacture caliber 1904-MC automatic movement all sealed to a depth of 300 meters water resistant.

It can be tough for a brand to enter a new segment.  Brands known for classic dress like Jaquet Droz and Glashutte have successfully made entry over the years as well.  With a groundwork in classic timepieces, Cartier obviously had no issue taking on the challenge and bringing their very loyal following a well priced sport piece.  Start at $8,200, the Calibre de Cartier Diver finally brings Cartier in to a segment it should have been in years ago.
