Setting trends from the popularising the wrist watch to creating iconic timepieces like the Tank & Santos Galbee very few Jewellery houses can boast to having equally iconic timepieces.
Alberto Santos-Dumont, a famous & flamboyant aviator, requested a wrist watch from Cartier thus the famous Cartier Santos was born, a watch that is still a firm favourite in Cartier's collection to this day.
The Cartier Tank Watch was created as a tribute to the Tanks that helped defend Paris during World War 1 & remain a mainstay in any true collectors aspirations. Cartier has always had a relationship with royalty from the Raj's of India to the Pasha of Marrakesh for whom the Cartier Pasha was created; another iconic Cartier Timepiece. Alongside their incredible Jewellery, Cartier was also been at the forefront of true haute horology therefore, both connoisseur & aesthete are both catered for.
