The history of Cartier is fantastic, as it invented many styles of watches that are still produced today. Founded in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier, this company was originally a jewelry boutique. The first wrist watch made by Cartier was called the Santos Dumont named after the Brazilian Aviator in 1904. 2 years later, Cartier began experimenting with jewel-encrusted watches. 1917 saw the introduction of the famous Cartier Tank watch. Long regarded as the single most important and influential watch design of the 20th century, the distinctive timepiece was designed in tribute to the Allied Tank commanders who helped defend France during World War I. Today its watches are Swiss-made with French high style.
Cartier watches are known all over the world to be one of the most valuable, reputable, most desired, and treasured luxury brands in the industry. Those who admire only the best timepieces are drawn to this brand and eagerly await the launch of new models. Whether it is for the fashion-conscious teen or a dignified entrepreneur, a Cartier watch is sure to entice and appeal to those with exquisite taste. Cartier provides only the best craftsmanship to each watch to ensure consumer needs and requirements are met with supreme quality. There is no doubt that Cartier watches are at par with the highest of standards set by the horological industry.
Some of the famous watch models include the Tonneau 1906, Tank 1910, and Tortue 1912. These timepieces were continuously manufactured even past the death of Louis in 1942. Subsequently, the Baignoire 1957, Panthere 1983 and the Pasha Cartier 1985 were launched. The Tank Francaise and the Privee collection were produced more recently in 1996. The timepieces became so popular that it developed a large following of women who considered the watch more of a jeweled accessory and a fashion statement.
In the 1980's the Cartier 'Panthere' was the watch to wear. The common theme has always been that Cartier is geared more for the women's market. One model that has done extremely well for Cartier men is the 'Roadster' and 'Roadster Chronograph'. Just recently, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the 'Santos', Cartier unveiled the 'Santos 100'. The 'Santos 100' and the 'Santos 100 XXL' continue in popularity. Newly released 'Ballon Bleu de Cartier' and 'La Dona de Cartier' are already favorites of watch aficionados.
