Founded in the heart of Paris, Cartier has been the epitome of haute couture sophistication for over 170 years.

Cartier Favorite #1. Panthere de Cartier Women's Watch Collection
Introduced originally in 1983, the ladies' timepieces of the Panthere de Cartier collection are back and better than ever. Available at Albert's Diamond Jewelers in small and medium sizes, the watches of the Panthere de Cartier line are wonderfully sporty, and feature Cartier's classic square-shaped case making them perfect for casual everyday wear.
Pictured above, made of 18-karat rose gold (with black lacquer details), yellow gold, white gold, and adorned with an octagonal sapphire-adorned crown, the timepieces of the Panthere de Cartier line are specially designed to bring a level of "bold, free, and fearless femininity" not seen from other watchmaking brands.
Cartier Favorite #2. Drive de Cartier Men's Watch Collection
One of the Cartier's latest men's timepiece collections, the Drive de Cartier line brings confident and straightforward watches ideal for the today's fashionable man. Featuring hand-made internal movement, the watches of the Drive de Cartier collection are each specifically made to emphasize a difference watchmaking mechanic from Cartier's nearly 200 years of innovation and technical creativity.
As opposed to the relative simplicity shown in the watches of the Panthere de Cartier collection, the models of the Drive de Cartier line feature accurate date and GMT subdials, along with charming moonphase and day/night indicator complications. Truly more than the sum of its parts, every Drive de Cartier piece sits on genuine alligator leather strap, making it great for a day at the office or a night on the town.

In 1847, King Edward VII deemed Cartier "the jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers," and while looking at the men's and ladies' watches of the Ballon Bleu de Cartier it's not hard to see why. A favorite of modern-day royalty like Kate Middleton, as well as fashionistas like Sofia Vergara and Nicole Kidman, the Ballon Bleu de Cartier collection was introduced in 2007 as a sleek and streamlined timepiece option.
Seen here made with 18-karat pink gold and stainless steel, these three men's and women's Ballon Bleu de Cartier timepieces feature the collection's signature round case shape and crown guard, which are built for maximum wearer comfort and style.
