Maison Cartier have always excelled at the creation of new and innovative shapes. In recent years, all the brands have vied to outdo each other with new designs but Cartier led the way with such designs as the tonneau shaped Tortue. Their latest revision of the expected case style is the Cle de Cartier. The Cle element, Cle meaning key, is shown in the way the crown operates and then stealthily drops back into place. The design, like a solid block rather rather than the typical crown system then fits back into the case without disturbing the smooth lines of the curved shape that in turn hugs the wrist beautifully. Another fantastic and luxurious creation from Cartier.
