The history of Cartier

Cartier, a name synonymous with luxury and craftsmanship, was founded in Paris in 1847 by Louis Cartier. The esteemed jeweler gained royal fame in 1904 when it introduced the first practical wristwatch, the Cartier “Santos”, designed for aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. This was the beginning of Cartier’s illustrious legacy in the field of horology. Over the years, Cartier continued to innovate and redefine watch design standards. Iconic models were introduced such as the Tank, the Ballon Bleu and the Pasha, each uniquely embodying the brand’s timeless elegance and commitment to excellence.

The different watches of Cartier 

Cartier’s wide range of watches caters to different tastes, with each model carrying a unique blend of design and heritage. The Cartier Santos, also known as Santos de Cartier, is an icon of modern horology known for its geometric design and visible screws, while the Tank watch, characterized by its clean lines and classic aesthetic, pays homage to World War I military tanks. The Drive de Cartier watch is a design made for good readability while driving. The Tank Américaine, much executed in yellow gold, elevates the Tank design with an extended case and a more pronounced curve. The Pasha, with its signature square-in-circle design, exudes a distinctive look. The Dumont, named after aviator Santos-Dumont, showcases the brand’s aviation history with its elegant and minimalist design. The Baignoire, with an elliptical dial, testifies to Cartier’s creativity. However, Cartier does not just make wrist watches for men, as seen in their stunning Panthère de Cartier and Tank Française watch lines. Each piece tells a unique story and embodies the brand’s enduring legacy of luxury and craftsmanship.
