Considering Cartier gold and steel women's watches? What a coincidence...so are we! When it comes choosing a watch, every woman will admit that while she wants stellar performance, she also expects beauty and style - after all, aesthetics are just as important as functionality! Cartier embraces this concept, and creates classically elegant and durable timepieces.
What are the Cartier Gold and Steel Women's Watches?
Especially in a world where fashion meets function, a woman's watch is an essential accessory. This is what makes a gold and steel (or two-toned) watch so ideal – one piece can go with any look, irrespective of whether you're working a silver or gold theme! So, if you're in the market for one of Cartier's small women's watches in gold and steel, let's examine what your choices are and which one would best fit you and your lifestyle.
Yellow Gold and Steel Watches
A yellow gold and steel combination is a classic look; a muted sunbeam on your wrist, if you're feeling poetic! The beauty of this combination is that it's eye-catching without being overpowering in any way. Whether you're matching it with your suit for a day at work, that sunny yellow dress for a small brunch, or with a fun top and jeans for a night out dancing, any of these watches will give you and your evening that subtle touch of class and cheer.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier 28mm, priced at $7450 excluding tax, is a delicate round-dial piece that gives the appearance of lightness – both in color as well as weight – the hallmark of this collection. Set in a steel case with an 18k gold and steel bracelet, the watch has a silver opaline dial and an 18k yellow gold fluted crown set with a blue synthetic spinel cabochon.

Rectangular dials present more options to choose from. The Santos de Cartier Galbée small watch, from the iconic Santos collection and priced at $7000 excluding tax, bears a slightly rounded case in which the gold has a much more subtle appearance that accentuates the steel rather than blending with it. The watch comes with an 18k yellow gold and steel case paired with a steel bracelet with 18K yellow gold screws. It has a silver grained dial and 18k yellow gold bezel, along with a steel octagonal crown set with a faceted synthetic spinel.
