To me the chain link style of the watch was a bit kinky. Cartier didn't see this, but couldn't disagree that this might be an additional attraction point to the watch. They see it as "captivating her," I see it as "a really good way to keep her captive." Your own interpretation is welcome. The smaller version makes with just one blued steel hand (for the hours - you can tell the time to withing about 10 minute precision), while the larger version as two hands. The watch faces themselves are small of course in comparison to the rest of the watches. All in all the collection is pretty nice and unique for Cartier. See a bit more detail in a previous article on the Captive collection here. Prices are about $22,100-$96,500.
