Indeed, Cartier watches never fail to combine daring design with watch-making savoir-faire. Each timepiece promises high level functionality and exquisite aesthetic, in equal measure.
Cartier is the renowned French jeweller and watchmaker with a history of pioneering design and a drive for excellence. The first references to Cartier watches date back to 1888. Late in the 19th century it was pocket and chatelaine watches that were most popular, but Louis Cartier saw a future in timepieces that could be worn on the wrist.
The first Cartier watch became the stepping stone to a long love affair and the creation of many new models. Names like Tank, Baignoire, Ballon Bleu, Santos and Calibre all refer to a shape, a winding crown, a moment in history or the brands first in-house watch movement.
