Cartier Watch Holds Gears Together Using Vacuum-Seal Technology [Video]
Luxury brand creates a concept design that reduces air friction in the timepiece to make the battery life longer.
The development of the Cartier ID Two Concept Watch took more than five years of research and development, and a team of 135 different engineers. The watch addresses factors of storing maximum energy while minimizing consumption. The beautifully crafted watch uses AirFree technology with a vacuum-sealed case, allowing it to consume 37% less energy.
In addition, the timepiece uses polymer-coated fiberglass springs so it can store 30% more energy than a typical watch that uses metal springs. The Cartier wristwatch also includes anti-magnetic and anti-corrosive carbon crystal-coated silicon gears to reduce friction up to 80%.
