Known as a maison (French for house), Cartier was established in 1847 Paris by Louis-François Cartier.
Leading the way in creative watchmaking
It was his three grandsons who travelled the world looking for global inspiration, opening boutiques in London, New York and then beyond. Renowned for the jewels that echo through history - worn by the most glamorous of stars and royalty - it is easy to forget that Cartier is a pioneer in watchmaking. Responsible for the world's first modern wristwatch in 1904, the Santos, driven by advances in aviation and the Brazilian pilot Alberto Santos-Dumont, Cartier has since developed its own range of in-house watch movement, has led the way in creative watchmaking and developing iconic shapes as its signature.
We are fortunate to have had a partnership with Cartier spanning over 70 years.
