Since 1847, the French label Cartier has been the luxury brand of choice for those in the upper echelon of society. The founder Louis-Fran?ois Cartier knew exactly what these lovers of the finest things in life wanted. For one, diamonds always do the trick. For their Cartier Libre collection, its that and 18k white gold. These watches are the ultimate expression of art and architecture in varying forms and shapes measuring between a delicate 17mm to an impressive 47mm. Powered by Swiss Quartz, the exquisite Cartier Libre cases are nicely balanced out with just the sword shaped hands indicating the hours and minutes on the dial. Water resistant up to 30m, most Cartier Libre models are fitted with a fabric strap and while one may look vastly different from another, displays the same degree of opulence and grace.
