Known as a Maison (French for house), Cartier was established in 1847 in Paris by Louis-Francois Cartier.
Leading the way in creative watchmaking
Luxury French watch brand Cartier is arguably one of the most recognisable watch brands in the world due to their signature shapes, blue Roman numerals and crowns set with Cartier's signature deep blue cabochon sapphires that span many of their collections. Amongst many of their reputable feats, the Maison was 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 movements and 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 that includes our own Cartier boutique housed within our flagship Watches of Switzerland store on Regent Street, London. Our experts are highly trained in all things Cartier, and we provide an exceptional service for those looking for pieces from this esteemed luxury watch brand. In 2020, to coincide with the opening of our new Watches of Switzerland store in Broadgate, London, we were proud to launch a pop-up Cartier exhibition.
