Cartier Watches – Fine art of watchmaking designs

Exemplary Cartier watch collection
Cartier has a marvelous watch collection that appeals to both men and women alike. These watches are made of high-grade materials and feature unique designs. Collections like Tank de Cartier have grabbed a lot of attention from the elites. Not only the Cartier Tank watch but also the other collection is worn by some of the most influential people around the globe.
Here are some of the important watch collections launched by Cartier over the years:
- Cartier Santos
- Cartier Tank
- Cartier Ballon Bleu
- Cartier Panthère
- Cartier Roadster
Cartier Santos was first launched in 1904 and it has been around since then. The watch was originally designed for the renowned Brazilian pilot Alberto Santos-Dumont. He even wore the Cartier Santos to his record-breaking flight in 1906 when he performed the world’s first public engine-powered flight. The Santos helped him to keep both hands on the controls while also reading the time. This helped Santos achieve the title “the first pilot’s watch” in the world.
Cartier gave the Santos collection a rebirth in 2018. With the new models, the company brought the in-house caliber 1847 MC. These watches were also capable of handling magnetic fields of up to 1,200 gauss. The company even updated the bezel, which now looks more prominent, especially with two-tone models due to the contrasting colors. The major advantage that one gets with the Santos series is Cartier’s patented QuickSwitch and SmartLink systems. With the help of these systems, the changing of the band has become an easy process.
One of the most popular models in the Santos collection is the ref. WJSA0012. It is a 35mm watch and its case is made of 18-karat rose gold. Giving it a more luxurious touch, the case is furnished with brilliant-cut diamonds. It is powered by the automatic in-house caliber 1847 MC.
A popular choice among celebrities, the Cartier Tank watch was developed in 1917. The watch took its inspiration from the tanks that were used by the British military during the First World War. The Cartier Tank watch collection stands out due to its distinctive design. The timepiece features unique-looking lugs and the bracelet or strap is also seamlessly integrated. The original prototype of the watch was presented to General of the Armies John J. Pershing.
Cartier Tank watch collection was a huge success from the beginning and it has received several updates over the years. The watchmaker has also released a few sub-collections under the Tank moniker, including the Tank Anglaise and Tank Solo.
Among many famous Tank models, one of the most sought-after watches was the Tank Solo ref. W520001. It is a stainless steel women’s watch featuring twelve roman numerals sitting on a silver-plated opalescent dial. The crown of the watch sports a synthetic spinel cabochon.
Cartier Tank was also a signature accessory in former First Lady of the United States, Jackie Kennedy. Among her collection of hundreds of jewels and numerous watches, she was mostly seen wearing her classic gold Cartier Tank watch. The watch had a black lizard strap.
Cartier Ballon Bleu
Cartier Ballon Bleu is a unique watch collection that has got its name from its own design. The watches are shaped round like a balloon. All of the watches in the collection get a distinctive-looking crown with a blue (‘bleu’ in French) sapphire or spinel cabochon. First introduced in 2007, Cartier has added the perfect modern and elegant touch to the Ballon Bleu collection.
Today, the collection is available in stainless steel, yellow gold and rose gold. There are also two-tone watches for a more distinctive look. Some unique and exclusive Ballon Blue models feature a combination of white gold with plenty of diamonds.
Under the Ballon Bleu Cartier collection, one of the more popular models is the ref. W69010Z4. It is a women’s watch with quartz movements with both its case and bracelet made out of stainless steel. Offering a class by itself, the particular watch features a silver-plated dial with twelve black Roman indices. The hour and minute hands are tempered blue making it stand out.
Inspired by the real Panther, the Cartier Panthère collection showcases beauty and grace just like the wildcat. The watches under this collection are made using the finest materials, including gold and diamonds. Some of the top models also come furnished with gems as well.
Cartier released the first Panthère in 1914 and it featured precious stones that were set to mimic the pattern of panther fur. It also featured a round case and a square dial with Roman numerals. The whole collection was being monitored by Jeanne Toussaint. Toussaint was the company’s creative director at the time.
Cartier Roadster was released in 2001 but it was discontinued 10 years later. The watch featured a barrel-shaped case. For its design, the timepiece took inspiration from the sports cars of 1960s. While its design might remind you of the vintage models of Alfa Romeo and Aston Martin, it is far from a true sports watch.
The Cartier Roadster is more of a dress watch that goes well with any attire. Available in a variety of case sizes, this Cartier watch is ideal for men as well as women. Under the Roadster moniker, Cartier has launched several types of watches including classic three-hand models, chronographs and even watches with the GMT function.
Why add Cartier to your watch collection?
Cartier is one of the most renowned companies when it comes to jewelry and watchmaking. Over the years, the company has created some virtuous and exemplary timepieces. With watch models like the Tank de Cartier, the company has not only gained a spot on the wrists of celebrities but also the ones from the royal families.
Here are all the right reasons to finally add a Cartier to your collection:
- Historical value
- Outstanding craftsmanship
- Righteous investment
Be it jewelry or watches, Cartier gets inspired by the designs of art, travel, and history. For instance, the Panthère series goes back to the days when big cats were in fashion. Many public advertisements took advantage of the charm of a panther for campaigns as it also had an expression of femininity. This makes the entire Panthère collection iconic. Besides that, Cartier watches for women have been seen in different collections. From the Tank to the Ballon Bleu, all are elegant fashion statements.
Some of the Cartiers also feature vintage designs that date back all the way to the 1900s. This drives us back to contemporary times and also marks as a symbol for anyone who wears them. These timeless watches are designed in such a way that they suit well with any clothing and will complement any wardrobe and occasion.
Cartier wristwatches are made to depict high standards and that is why they take advantage of the finest quality of materials. The watches feature an attractive build and an artistic design helping them set apart from every other watch manufacturer. Being a jewelry company at the roots, they have even added diamonds, rubies and other gems to their watches. These gemstones not only give these watches a distinctive look but also make them a prime choice among the elites and royals.
“Cartier’s creations symbolize the fusion of exceptional savoir-faire and timelessness.”
It is not only the outstanding design where their craftsmanship ends. The company also aims big when it comes to technological advancements of a watch. One of the technically advanced watches is the Calibre de Cartier Diver, which is considered a professional tool watch. It has been among the top choices of the professional elites as it looks unique and it is a superior and advanced sports watch.
Apart from being unique-looking high-quality watches, Cartier timepieces can also act as a great investment. The watches are built out of really high-grade materials making them last for generations. Some of the vintage models can sell for a huge amount of money. Also, there are watches that were well-appreciated by watch enthusiasts but they have now been discontinued. Such watches can also fetch a good value.
