Cartier’s perception of time is not confined to the linear but rather embraces the cyclical, a unique philosophy that propels the Maison towards endless innovation and transformation. This constant motion ensures their watches are not only exceptional in the present but also in the ever-evolving future. Their creativity knows no bounds, with unlimited time and infinite possibilities at their fingertips. This year, Cartier’s watch collections embody this notion with watches exuding character and form, reimagined through the prism of their imagination.
The Tank Normale.
The Tank collection, an original concept envisioned by Louis Cartier, continues to thrive with the introduction of the new Tank Normale, paying homage to the very first Tank created in 1917, and the sleek Tank Américaine. These iconic Cartier watchmaking hallmarks are joined by new interpretations of the Pasha, Baignoire, Panthère, and Santos de Cartier watches. To further their innovative streak, the Clash [Un]limited watch fuses the aesthetic heritage of the Clash collection with an evolved design that looks to the future. With Cartier, the future is now, and it’s always filled with endless possibilities.
Cartier has outdone itself this year with a dreamy hour/minute version that draws inspiration from the original, taking on its proportions and beveled sapphire crystal. This timepiece is available in two stunning options – yellow gold on a luxurious brown alligator strap and platinum on a sleek black alligator strap. But that’s not all, as this model is also offered on a yellow gold bracelet or a platinum bracelet with satin and polished finishes that embody the chic and retro spirit of the 70s. Cartier has truly elevated the art of watchmaking with this striking and versatile timepiece.
The Tank Americaine.
The Maison’s design studio is taking the original design of the watch to new heights, reinforcing its signature curved shape with a more refined and acrobatic line. The purity of its form is elevated even further with the exquisite style of the dial and the seamless integration of the brancards into the extension of the strap. With careful attention to every detail, the result is a watch that not only embodies the spirit of the original design but also pushes the boundaries of creativity and innovation. Cartier has truly outdone itself with this stunning masterpiece.
The Santos Dumont.
Cartier Manufacture has taken on a new challenge in 2023 – elevating the slim and understated shape of the iconic Santos-Dumont watch to greater heights. The introduction of the specially developed 9629 MC automatic skeleton calibre is a testament to their unwavering commitment to excellence. The latest Santos-Dumont watch stays true to the elegance of the original 1904 model, featuring visible screws, a beaded crown, and a blue cabochon on a gold or steel case. With a skeleton movement that pays tribute to the aviator, each structural detail is carefully crafted with inventive and narrative elements. The miniaturized functional oscillating weight, in the shape of a replica of the Demoiselle, a pioneering plane designed by the pilot in 1907, is a powerful symbol that seems to soar over a globe, adding to the timepiece’s exceptional appeal. Cartier’s commitment to innovation and design is truly unparalleled, and the Santos-Dumont watch is a testament to their mastery of the art of watchmaking.
Step into a world of unlimited possibilities with the Clash [Un]limited watch by Cartier. This daring timepiece is a true work of art, available in a range of precious metals that include diamond-paved yellow, rose, and white gold. But what truly sets this watch apart is its unique combination of exceptional stones that have been expertly selected to complement the design. From striking black and white onyx, black spinels, and obsidian to vivid coral, chrysoprase, tsavorites, and diamonds in a rainbow of hues, the Clash [Un]limited watch is a celebration of creativity and individuality. Designed by the master artisans of Cartier’s watchmaking studios, this watch is a shining example of the Maison’s commitment to crafting jewellery watches that are as bold as they are beautiful.
La Panthere de Cartier.
With an undeniable magnetism, Cartier’s iconic panther takes center stage in the Maison’s latest masterpiece of a jewellery watch. Its fierce and formidable presence is boldly captured as it closes its jaws on a black lacquer dial, beautifully reflecting the colour of its legendary spots. The panther’s intense gaze is made all the more striking by the vivid green of its emerald eyes, while its sleek and powerful form is masterfully crafted with impeccable attention to detail. This watch is a true celebration of the panther’s enduring allure and the Maison’s unmatched creativity in capturing its essence in exquisite jewellery creations. In yellow or rose gold speckled with black lacquer with tsavorite eyes or in diamond-paved white gold with emerald eyes, it captivates and captures the gaze
The new Baignoire Watch.
A new year brings a new wave of change, and for Cartier, it comes in the form of a change in scale and function. The dial and its iconic Roman numerals have been given a regal touch with a luxurious gold ribbon. But that’s not all – Cartier has also explored the oval shape that is the hallmark of the watch and turned it into a stunning bezel that fits seamlessly against the wrist. The result is a one-of-a-kind timepiece that blurs the lines between a watch and a piece of jewelry. A hybrid creation, this watch is the perfect accessory for those who appreciate both precision timekeeping and the artistry of fine jewelry. With this exquisite piece, Cartier once again demonstrates its unrivaled ability to blend style and substance in perfect harmony.
