Cartier wristwatches for women that defy the hands of time
The name Cartier is synonymous with exquisite luxury and quality and the French label boasts a large variety of designs and maintains sophistication and elegance in every single one of their collections.
Cartier dominates the industry of elegant and expensive timepieces which are crafted from the finest steel, rose gold, yellow gold, and white gold, and precious diamonds.
Let’s take a look at some of the ladies watches that make up the stunning Cartier collection.
Louis Cartier created the iconic Tank watch in 1917. The first prototype was presented as a gift to General Pershing some years before the watch was brought to market in 1919 and it was an instant success and now has countless variations while still preserving its original identity.
There’s the Tank Anglaise, the Tank Louis Cartier, the Tank Américaine, the Tank Française and the Tank Solo which are classic and sober timepieces, simple in their design, while being refined and sophisticated.
The Tank collection has wide selection of bracelet materials to choose from whether they be in gold, steel or leather and the watch movements are either mechanical, automatic or quarz.
The Ballon Bleu de Cartier watches is one of newest additions to the Cartier collection.
This model comes in three sizes, and features Roman numerals and a curved case and sword-shaped hands and with the optional addition of diamondscompletes the very feminine and luxurious look.
The Baignoire was created in 1906 and is distinctly feminine with its elongated oval dial and comes in either pink, white or yellow gold and this series also has the options of diamonds, making it even more a timeless and chic watch.
Pasha de Cartier was introduced in 1943 and it features a round, water-resistant case, four Arabic numerals, a screw-down crown cap attached to the case by a small chain, and sword-shaped hands.
Then there is the Santos de Cartier, one of the first ever wristwatches ever made.
Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont was unhappy with using a pocket watch while flying because of the unreliability and impracticality, so Louis Cartier in 1904 designed a flat wristwatch with a distinctive square bezel and it became another icon of the French label.
The Santos has been reinterpreted in four different versions, with the Santos Demoiselle solely dedicated to women with nine different selections, while there are also models in the Santos 100 version.
