Since their beginnings, Cartier watches prove that they are a pioneer in modern watchmaking. Though the brand had originally established itself as a jewellery maker in 1847, falling for the lustre and allure of luxury that Paris offers. This allowed them a prestigious clientele that is still true of today. Louis Cartier reignited watchmaking traditions lost for over a century with the likes of mystery clocks and of course, high fashion wristwatches worn by those highly regarded in society. As far back as 1888, Cartier account books mentioned the first ladies’ wristwatches and the first was created in 1902, though for a friend and not as a general sale. The earlier men’s watches that followed were all handmade in France.

Today, the treasured timepieces from Cartier are a refined modern accessory that says everything you need to about yourself and your personality. No longer just a retailer to aristocracy and royalty, Cartier lives out its reputation as a high-end watch brand with a rich and interesting history. Notably, the invention of the first men’s wristwatch. When you purchase a Cartier, you are purchasing mechanisms that boast a precision to be rivalled and a passion in each model. To wear a Cartier watch as a lady or a gentleman is to stand out.
