Neither barrel-shaped nor rectangular, Cartier’s Tortue plays with convention to deliver a style all its own. Its generous curves are deployed in sizes all the way up to XXL, allowing Cartier to extend its watchmaking prowess to the full. From three-hand versions through to the perpetual calendar, the Cartier Tortue asserts its singular nature – and that of its wearer.1 11
After first appearing in 1914, the Panthère is an unfettered, avant-garde watchmaking collection. Indomitable, perennially popular, it’s a square-shaped creation within a square, with rounded corners. It boasts Cartier’s signature blue-tinted sword-shaped hands, Roman numerals, and sapphire cabochon.2 11
The Ballon Bleu collection features many of Cartier’s distinctive watchmaking calling cards, including its hallmark sapphire-tipped fluted crown, Roman numerals, and sword-shaped hands in blue-tinted steel. The collection is now one of the largest in Fine Watchmaking, ranging from three-hand timepieces to grand complications and fine jewellery watches.4 11
Cartier, masters of form, have produced an audacious timepiece: the Baignoire. Its aesthetic balance appears self-evident, but is in fact the fruit of unrivalled experience in balancing volume, depth, and curvature. A singular timepiece for women with a carefully studied style.5 11
The Cartier Calibre is imposing, technical, and versatile, expanding the manufacture’s universe to encompass a man’s world in which sturdiness and functionality go hand in hand with elegance and modernity. The Cartier Calibre is one of the firm’s rare timepieces to feature black, a rubber strap, and other authentic dive watch characteristics.6 11
Cartier is always at the forefront of style. The Clé dispenses with the traditional crown; in its place, a delicate rectangle adorned with a sapphire has been created. This detail serves as the cornerstone of a timepiece with an uncluttered style and a rounded, gentle, sensual profile – now one of the firm’s classics.7 11
One of the manufacture’s more recent creations – and already a classic. Cartier’s Drive squares the circle in exclusive Cartier fashion; the resulting shape is perfect for the modern, city-dwelling man in a careful balance of tension, gentleness, power, and control. The multiple variations on this theme already offer ample proof of its design excellence.8 11
For Cartier to produce a round watch is almost unheard-of; the jeweller is much more accustomed to breaking away from traditional shapes and styles. As a result, the Ronde Solo is a coveted collection. Despite its unusual shape for Cartier, the piece retains the firm’s hallmark style in its Roman numerals, jewelled crown, guilloche dial, and blue-tinted, sword-shaped steel hands.9 11
One collection, three families: Santos, Santos-Dumont, and Santos 100. All three exude the turn-of-the-century elegance of the early days of aviation and its proud pioneers. Like them, the Cartier Santos is daring and assertive, imposing its style in a blend of power and control. Having spanned the previous century, this historic Cartier collection will endure throughout the next with the same timeless ease.10 11
Over a century after its creation, the restrained power of Cartier’s Tank collection still impresses. Whether skeletonised or complicated, steel or gold, Anglaise or Américaine, it asserts its versatility through genuine modernity. The Tank is an icon with a rare ability to accommodate any and every trend in fashion.11 11
