When you imagine a high jewelry watch, you're thinking about something that's unique and beautiful...and seems more jewelry than watch! And that's before you add in the "mystery" factor that so many brands like. And, when you think of these, among the first to pop to mind are Cartier high jewelry watches.
What Do We Know About Cartier High Jewelry Watches?
Cartier had begun to produce wristwatches in 1888; until then, the use of pocket watches was the prevailing fashion. Women's wristwatches at that time were largely jewelry watches. These watches were given further impetus with the arrival of Louis Cartier, eldest son of Alfred Cartier. Even while working on stunning jewelry and "objets d'art", Louis Cartier had always had a keen interest in watchmaking...especially mystery clocks, high fashion wristwatches, and jewelry watches...a style and tradition of watchmaking that had not been seen in many years. Over the following years, accessory timepieces became more popular among women.
A significant boost came when he appointed Jeanne Toussaint as Artistic Director of High Jewellery in 1933. Famous for her bold personal style, she was fondly known as "La Panthere"...an image that soon became a symbolic representation of Cartier. In fact, the panther was the first solo protagonist in all variations of Cartier's high jewelry watches - whether with gold or precious stones. As a symbol of luxury and extravagance, it is the very personification of "haute joaillerie".
Today, Cartier high jewelry watches are recognized by their defining appearance of circles, diamond shapes and squares gem-set with precious stones. With graphic lines and flowing curves, the immediate feeling these watches create is one of blissful decadence. While there is a definite majority for panther pieces, there are also other jaw-dropping designs that hold their own. Given Cartier's high standards, both in design and material, it goes without saying that the diamonds and gemstones used to create these beautiful pieces are of the highest quality and only those that match the desired specifications exactly are used.
Each of these masterpieces is at the pinnacle of luxury watchmaking and high jewelry practices; a testament to the expertise of Cartier's master watchmakers and jewelers! Every year, Cartier creates new high jewelry watches with precious metals and stones...divine pieces that are exhibited at the SIHH for the world to fall in love with and wistfully covet.
