Nothing epitomizes French luxury more than the Cartier brand of jewelry, watches, accessories, and fragrances. From its inception in 1847 Paris, Louis-FranÃƒÂ§ois Cartier and his family turned Cartier into a world-recognized maker of fine jewelry and luxury watches. Today, Cartier continues to make countless contributions to watchmaking.
Cartier has become a symbol for sophisticated and inventive French design. They have gained wide acclaim after developing the first wristwatch for men, receiving royal endorsements, and iconic designs that are beloved to this day.
Cartier: Distinguished and Original
Parisian-born Cartier has an illustrious past among royalty. They have received royal warrants from Russia, Thailand, and most of Europe.
Louis-FranÃƒÂ§ois Cartier’s grandsons, Louis, Pierre, and Jacques, were responsible for Cartier’s meteoric rise as a jewelry brand. Jacques’ excursion to London resulted in a royal warrant from King Edward VII who famously proclaimed Cartier as the “jewelers of kings and the king of jewelers.”
Cartier boasts a robust and skilled staff of designers and creative directors to create some of the most popular designs of today and tomorrow.
The brands designs verge on eccentric and vibrant pieces with worldwide influences. Their "Tutti Frutti” pieces featured colorful gemstones using Indian techniques set in platinum. Other popular designs include the Love bracelets and the Tank-inspired watches. Cartier has a varied collection that’ll appeal to any style.
Calibre de Cartier
Cartier watches have no comparison. The Calibre de Cartier collection is a modern and sophisticated take on classic round timepieces equipped with the Manufacture Cartier movement, the 1904 MC. These timepieces combine a sporty ruggedness with impeccable craftsmanship. A semi-matte alligator-skin strap elevates the timepiece’s elegance.
