The Legacy of Cartier Watches

Cartier – a jewelry dynasty of elegance, fine craftsmanship, and style – first began creating wristwatches in 1906. Referred to as “the jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers” by England’s Edward VII, Cartier specializes in the production of uniquely beautiful watches, many of which are cased using precious metals, and adorned with rare gemstones.

Cartier's attention to detail is unmatched, as demonstrated by the intricate guilloché dial fitted to the Ballon Bleu.

Key Features of Cartier Watches

Cartier watches are renowned for their precision, elegance, timelessness, and accurate timekeeping. Their singularly tasteful aesthetics act as the perfect accent to any elevated ensemble.

Cartier Tank

The Cartier Tank dates back to 1917 and is the brand’s most iconic model with ties back to the first World War. Its rectangular shape is simple and elegant while the blue sapphire on the crown adds a subtle touch of luxury detail. There are many iterations of the original Tank, including the Tank Americaine, Tank Anglaise, Tank Francaise, and more.

Cartier Santos

The Cartier Santos is a testament to the brand's strong ties with aviation. This iconic chronograph features a highly reliable mechanical movement, a screw-adorned bezel, and a robust case featuring flowing lines and rounded edges. The Santos is not just a tool for pilots but a statement of high performance and daring spirit.

Cartier Pasha

The Cartier Pasha is a marvel of balanced design and high functionality. First made available for purchase in 1985, the Pasha draws inspiration from a unique watch commissioned by the Pasha of Marrakech in the 1930s. Refined for modern tastes by none other than Gérald Genta, the Pasha boasts no shortage of noteworthy associations.

Guide to Cartier Watch Materials & Terminology

Learn more about Cartier’s unique nomenclature for materials in their catalog or read our quick guide to Cartier Materials.

Proprietary Cartier Materials

Cartier is known for its innovative use of materials. The brand often uses 18k gold (yellow, rose, or white), stainless steel, and a blend of gold and steel in their watches. However, Cartier has also introduced proprietary materials like 'Ceramyst,' a ceramic material that's almost as hard as diamond and highly resistant to scratches.

Cartier Bracelets

Cartier provides a range of bracelet styles to match individual preferences. The 'Santos' bracelet mirrors the watch's bezel screws, the 'Pasha' bracelet boasts sturdy, bold links, and the 'Tank' bracelet seamlessly blends with the case for a sleek look. Each bracelet prioritizes comfort, durability, and style.

Cartier Clasps

Cartier's clasps balance function and style. They secure the watch on your wrist and are easy to use. The deployant clasp, popular for its durability and easy strap adjustment, and the hidden clasp, known for its sleek integration into the bracelet, are prime examples.

Cartier Watch Models

Cartier's diverse watch models each showcase unique style and features. The 'Santos' line has an industrial look, the 'Tank' line features a tank-inspired rectangular case, the 'Ballon Bleu' line is known for its rounded case and sapphire crown, and the 'Pasha' line stands out with a square case in a round dial. Each model embodies Cartier's innovation and craftsmanship.
