Why We Love the Calibre de Cartier
The Calibre de Cartier family represents the first "official" manufacture movement (for a core collection) for the Cartier line. It began with the MC1904, a double barrel mainspring, 48hr power reserve, time/date watch that was used in the inital Calibre de Cartier, Calibre Diver, and eventually the Tank MC. A lot of watch fans were wondering: why have two mainspring barrels with such a "standard" power reserve? The answer: to power the complications! The chronograph is a super demanding complication that also uses a lot of power to operate, so it was a technical feat to install it as one of the first complications in the MC1904 series.
