Cartier is a pioneer in watchmaking style, expertly blending boldness, passion and elegance. In the early years of the last century, in addition to creating the first wristwatch, Cartier also revolutionized watchmaking design by premiering his signature rectangular dial. Cartier watches are the mechanics of passion, a fusion of cutting-edge technology and character.

Founded in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, Cartier sets the world standard in luxury wristwatches.
In 1907, Cartier signed a contract with Edmond Jaeger, who agreed to exclusively supply the movements for Cartier watches. By this time, Cartier had branches in London, New York and St. Petersburg and was quickly becoming one of the most successful watch companies in the world. The Baignoire and Tortue models (both of which are still in production today) were introduced in 1912, followed by the Tank model in 1917. This, designed by Louis Cartier, was inspired from the newly introduced tanks on the Western Front. This line too has survived, with over thirty varieties made since.
Known for pioneering modern watch design, Cartier has several signature collections that are famous in the world of timepiece connoisseurs. Floating like a balloon and as blue as the sapphire safely nestled in its side, the Ballon Bleu watch by Cartier adds a dash of elegance to male and female wrists alike. Roman numerals are guided on their path by a sapphire cabochon winding mechanism protected by an arc of precious metal. With the convex curves of the case, guilloché dial, sword-shaped hands, and polished or satin-finish links of the bracelet, the Ballon Bleu watch by Cartier floats through the world of Cartier watchmaking.
Contemporary and refined, Cartier watches reinterpret the art of watchmaking with character and style. Equipped with new signature Cartier movements, each timepiece is a combination of masculinity and exceptional expertise.
