Cartier Calibre Watch With Diamonds Hands-On
If the standard Cartier Calibre watch (new for 2010) that has an in-house made movement isn't enough for you - and the gold version is also not enough for you - I am pretty sure I have the watch for you. This is the diamond studded, solid 18k rose gold version of the very attractive Cartier Calibre watch. For more on the Cartier Calibre watch itself, read more here.
Cartier always uses high-quality diamonds, and it shows with the large, good color diamonds on the bezel - and the massive diamond set into the crown. The rounder cut diamonds on the bezel each display a very good sheen and sparkle, and are set quite nicely. You can see the image of the diamond in the crown in the gallery below. Otherwise the watch is the same Calibre in rose gold - but this one is for the diamond lovers out there. Plus, given the good looks of the watch itself, and the tasteful arrangement of the stones, I would not consider this to be a "blingy" watch. Pretty much as tasteful as "solid gold with diamonds" gets. Price is $43,400 - and production is likely limited.
