Cartier watches are unique and the name has become synonymous with luxury. They are the fruit of an endless quest for excellence and an extraordinary commitment by men and women driven by the same passion. Confidence, tradition, innovation and attention to detail, forge the Cartier spirit that motivates each craftsman, engineer and artist to create some of the most extravagant and complicated watches. Cartier's history of watchmaking has been written over more than a hundred years, reflecting the unhurried rhythms of creativity and excellence in the field, which are the cornerstones of their pioneering style.
The Pasha de Cartier has been a cult watch since its creation in 1985. The Pasha watch is for those who think big. With its distinctive codes and extraordinary design, it’s an extroverted timepiece that steps outside the box of classic watchmaking, where nothing is off-limits. Our latest Laings blog discusses the distinct details and extraordinary look of this iconic Cartier unisex watch.
The Santos’ collection was inspired by Louis Cartier’s friend, Alberto Santos-Dumont a Brazilian aviator who wanted more than a pocket watch to assist him while flying. To help him Louis Cartier invented a flat wristwatch with a square bezel. The case was seemingly inspired by a square pocket watch Cartier had produced, but the highly legible dial design marked a shift to Art Deco style that would define the 1920s and 1930s and continues to influence Cartier’s design aesthetic. Today, Cartier is renewing its tribute to Santos-Dumont, and to the style he embodied, through the Santos-Dumont XL watch. The Santos-Dumont XL watch reveals a completely reworked design and proportions. Its history, the purity of its lines and the beauty of its mechanical movement with manual winding make it a watch for connoisseurs. The Santos collection pieces are both bold and graceful timepieces.
