Cartier D’art Watch Collection

Cartier are one of the worlds most respected and admired brands, their jewellery and time pieces are revered across the globe. Amongst their vast creations, it is difficult to pin point just one item which stands out from the crowd, but their Cartier D’art watch collection has proven to rise above its brethren and showcase some truly amazing horological designs. Each piece is painstakingly crafted to perfection, offering some of the most stunning man made constructions to adorn your wrist.

Each individual piece has a rare and exotic creature from our beloved animal kingdom emblazoned upon its face, signifying the rarity of the watch. The faces of these watches are created by expert artisans in a 300 year old converted barn, ensuring they get the utmost privacy whilst practicing their craft. Each time piece has a very unique construction of its face, entwining traditional design techniques with modern technology to create something truly special. Each watch is only available in very limited numbers and due to the handmade skills needed to fabricate these mini masterpieces, you can be sure why. Some taking up to 2 weeks to finish just a portion of the final design. The Cartier D’art collection has 9 very unique styles available, below Fashion Runwayhas showcased each for your perusal.

Rotonde De Cartier – Panther

Sporting a fantastic panther upon its face, crafted out of black enamel and 18 carat gold. The grisaille gold-paste technique is used to create the big cat, constructed using a combination of very fine brushes and needles.  No fewer than 67 brilliant cut diamonds are placed along the edge of the watch case, with a further 43 smaller diamonds on the buckle of the alligator strap. Extremely limited to just 80 pieces.

Rotonde De Cartier – Panther

One of the older designs in the collection, first introduced in 2013, but still commanding attention as one of the most spectacular. The gold panther face is created using the granulation technique, a very lengthy task. Cartier themselves call it “Sowing seeds of gold” 3,800 gold beads are used to create the 22K carat face. Each is a tiny cut piece of wire, rolled in a charcoal dust, flame heated and then finally fused with gold plate to give that unmistakable colour. It takes an estimated 320 hours to piece together the beads upon the watch face, and a grand total of 3,500 firings altogether. Due to its arduous creation time, this piece is limited to a very few 20 pieces.

rsz_ronde_louis_cartier_watch_toucan

Ronde Louis Cartier – Toucan

One of the more elaborate and colourful of the Cartier D’art collection, the Toucan designed piece from 2014 is created using the plique-à-jour enamel technique. The Toucan shape is traced and crafted using a tiny soldered gold thread. The vibrant colours are produced using a very specific method, taking enamel in its raw origin form, melted down at very high temperatures and then ground down into a powder named flux. Metallic oxides are added to the mix to create the wide variety of colourful tones. They can then be added to the toucan framework. Each of the individual 21 colours has to be fired at unique temperatures exceeding well over 800 degrees. Extremely limited to only 40 pieces.

rsz_cartier_dart_tortue_panther_decor_mosaic_watch

Cartier D’art Tortue Panther Decor Mosaic Watch

A particularly beautiful designed timepiece, its face styled in the shape of a panther in a mosaic pattern akin to ancient Greek artwork. Using a combination of precious stones and onyx stones, along with a 18K pink gold dial and a breathtaking 123 brilliant cut diamonds surrounding the casing. Each of the limited 30 pieces is individually numbered.

rsz_cartier_dart_ballon_bleu_de_cartier_watch_with_granulat

Cartier D’art Ballon Bleu De Cartier Watch With Orchid Decor

A striking white alligator leather strap is used to hold this beautiful time piece to your wrist. 22K gold granulation laid across the 18K gold face, on top of which sits a mother of pearl design with orchid engraved decor, featuring yellow gold flower pistils coating in vibrant red enamel. Each of these flower inspired watches holds 124 diamonds upon its casing and 43 along the buckle. Only 40 of these amazing watches are available.

rsz_ballon_bleu_de_cartier_watch_parrot

Ballon Bleu De Cartier – Parrot

My personal favourite of this collection, mostly in part due to how the face is crafted. With one of the most beautiful creatures of the animal kingdom as a basis for its design, the parrot. Floral marquetry is the ancient craft used, rose petals are gathered, coloured and then cut into the desired shapes, each tiny piece is then applied using very steady hands to the gold dial. 2 weeks pass before the marquetry is finalised and a grand total of 3 weeks to create the whole dial. Black enamel is used for the parrots beak and an additional emerald for its eye. Its case is 18 carat rhodium white gold and a total of 118 brilliant cut diamonds. Very few of these are available, only 20 produced.

rsz_cartier_dart_ronde_louis_cartier_filigree_panthers_deco

Ronde Louis Cartier – Two Panthers

With their continuing obsession of using panthers, they have upped the ante by using 2 of the jungles big cats on this watch. Filigree craftsmanship is the special technique used in this instance. The blending of 950 platinum wire and 22k gold wire together which is shaped, styled and hammered in the shape of the two panthers and finally soldered together. This alone takes a minimum of 10 days. An application of lacquer and emeralds finish the beautiful face work. Setting off the design is a blue alligator strap containing 43 diamonds on the buckle, along with the 58 diamonds adorning the face. Very limited numbers, with just 20 due to be crafted.

Cartier D’art Watch – Panther

Finally we have the last watch in the collection, a stunning finale to the line up of Cartier D’art time pieces. This stunning watch boasts a 22k gold dial, the face of which has been hand crafted using enamel and etruscan granulation mixed with spangled blue lacquer to create the panther design. The crown on this watch has the unique addition with its cabochon sapphire in a fluted shape. A shiny blue alligator strap finishes the beautiful design, again featuring the signature 43 diamonds on the buckle, alongside the 124 around the casing, totalling 1.80 Carats.

New Rouge Clé de Cartier Watch

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

The New Rouge Clé de Cartier Watch

There’s a new and extremely beautiful watch on the scene and it belongs to Cartier. The name Clé de Cartiercomes from the word “key” in French, and the crown on this watch as a unmistakable resemblance to one. This winding mechanism on the watch has been specially designed to be ergonomic, while also introducing a new gesture of the hand which makes for setting the date and time completely effortless.

Cartier’s initial aim was clear with this watch. They wanted to create a new shape inspired by a circle and to introduce a new, sleek, curved aesthetic into their watchmaking vocabulary. I think they have definitely achieved that with this gorgeous new design! The curved profile of the watch case highlights its streamlined, organic and ergonomic design making sure it contours and hugs the wrist, allowing for ease and comfort.

Developed, produced and assembled by the Cartier Manufacture’s craftsmen in Switzerland.

This beautiful new watch comes in 8 different designs, for both men and women, some emblazoned with diamonds while others feature a slightly plainer face. Three versions of gold are optional, including yellow, white and rose or you can have a leather strap if you prefer. One thing i for certain and that’s the fact that with this watch gracing your wrist, you will definitely stand out from the crowd. You can find out more about this watch at the Cartier website here and here and you can also check out the video and the mechanics below.

rouge-cartier-Cle de Cartier-Watch-2rouge-cartier-Cle de Cartier-Watch-5

Cartier-Watch-BackThe design of this gorgeous Cartier watch is a testament to precision, balance, and proportion. This means that right angles have been eliminated, the bezel is completely rounded, and the lugs have been softened. This new watch is elongated and refined with the crown showcasing a sapphire which has been cleverly slipped inside the structure to seamlessly blend in with the surrounding metal.

This Cartier watch was named after the year the Maison was founded in 1847. It has a MC movement that integrates a fast barrel, which lends remarkable chronometric stability, while a bidirectional automatic winding mechanism provides exceptional robustness and durability. Finally, the watch is decorated with a Vagues de Genève motif, a date indicator and a 42-hour power reserve. With a diameter of 25.6 mm, it was designed according to the same principles as the case to be streamlined and sleek. Aren’t the mechanics just beautiful?

Cartier Trinity de Cartier 3-Gold Ring

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: CARTIER

Yes, it’s the night before Valentine’s Day and you’re in mild panic mode. Yes, you already bought the flowers, but it’s not looking as grand as you imagine. And the gift, you seriously gave it as much thought as you could, especially when you barely scraped through with the Christmas one but you’re still coming up short. A ring would be nice, but it couldn’t be just any ring, and the ones you’re already eyeing easily cost 3 grand and up, which is a tad more than you budgeted for.

So what do you do? You head down to Cartier, of course. More specifically, head to the glass counter which holds the Trinity de Cartier rings and point to the 3-gold one that retails for SGD1570. No, you’re not reading it wrong, there is really a ring from Cartierthat costs just that, a Trinity de Cartier, no less, in rose, yellow and white gold.

IMAGE: CARTIER

Actually, it doesn’t even have to cost that much. The rings actually start fromSGD1100 for thinnest bands, followed by the SGD1570 ones (they are both shown above) that I feel are just about right for most fingers of both men and women. They then go up to SGD2170 and SGD3650 respectively for the even thicker ones, but those I feel would be a tad too much for most people.

In other words, head down to Cartier stat tomorrow morning, pick up the SGD1570Trinity de Cartier 3-gold ring because it’s a real deal, get it packaged into Cartier’s beautiful red box and watch her (or him) smile when they open it. You can always thank me later.
