The Cartier Vision
Since the brand’s Parisian establishment in 1847, Cartier has been touted as a tastemaker. It quickly became one of the French elite’s favored watchmakers and steadily rose through the ranks of watchmakers worldwide. In 1904, Cartier created the first modern watch designed to be worn on the wrist. Today, Cartier continues to innovate and surprise the world.
Cartier watches are designed to not only perfectly suit and reflect the time they are in but also to acknowledge and allude to classic designs of decades past and give clues as to what is to come. Clean lines, precise proportions, and radical designs will always characterize the collections of this unparalleled watchmaker.
The Ballon Bleu collection is one of Cartier’s most iconic lines. Rounded pebble cases are timeless with a wonderfully comfortable fit. These watches are true crowd-pleasers. Diamond-studded dials or roman numeral indices offer a touch of luxury and class. The collection’s most distinctive feature is the crown guard domes around the sapphire cabochon crown.
Blurring the lines between jewelry and watches, the Panthere collection features timepieces that are exquisite works of art. Most watches in this women’s collection are crafted with square cases and made bold with gold, diamonds, and gemstones. These watches are ideal for women who prefer to stand out from the crowd.
In 1904, a friend of the brand’s founder, Louis Cartier, and a pilot commissioned the creator to craft a watch that he could easily read while flying. Thus the Santos watch was born. Large, squared cases allow for quick time-telling, but exposed screws are this collection's most distinctive design element. Mixed metals and curved horns have also served to elevate these watches to the realm of iconic.
Inspired by the tanks of WWI, the rectangular cases of the Tank collection are at once contemporary and classically adored. This symbol of elegance has captivated many for years and remains a sought-after watch to add to your collection. When you own a Tank watch, defined by flat vertical brancards and a sapphire cabochon, you know that you have a timepiece that will stand the test of time and remain fashionable forever.
