Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the Cartier Privé Tank Chinoise Skeleton Lacquered.

Avatar
amanico
I will say it straight, this Tank Chinoise Skeleton is one of the watches which pleased me the most, this year. I must confess that I don't know a lot about Cartier and that only a few watches from this brand have caught my attention, but here, I have strongly fallen in love. And, second surprise, the yellow gold version too! Almost every detail is exquisite, here. The case, first, which is a sublime contrast between polished ( the side case and lugs ) and brushed ( the bezel and the upper part of the lugs .....Story

Hands on review of the Cartier Santos-Dumont XL in steel

Avatar
foversta
This is one of the good news that Cartier is offering this year (yes there are others like the comeback of Pasha for example!): The restyled Santos-Dumont is now available in a handwind version after the presentation of the last year's high autonomy quartz version. To be frank, there are few details to distinguish the two watches apart from the slightly larger case size of the handwind version: the latter has a size of 46.6 mm x 33.9 mm compared to a size of 43 , 5mm x 31.4mm for the quartz version. The case ... ...Story

Thanks to the team of the Cartier boutique of Paris Opéra, I could attend the event dedicated to the new Santos collection which took place in another Cartier boutique of Paris: the one located on the Champs-Elysées. Actually, I was very happy to be invited for several reasons. The first one obviously to attend the event by itself: there is a kind of Cartier Know how when it comes to this type of party. Second reason to spend the evening inside the Champs-Elysées boutique...Story

SIHH 2018 live: Cartier

Avatar
foversta
Cartier is the symbol of a true market trend: the come back of more realistic prices. Can you imagine that the Santos Skeleton in steel is available at a price of around 25,000 euros? That the Drive in steel with the handwind movement at a price of 5.400 euros? The event this year is the come back of Santos but some very appealing pieces in higher segments were unveiled too. But obviously the focus is not in the high end segment anymore: back to classics could be a good summary of Cartier strategy. Please .....Story

Report of the Cartier Rendez-Vous event in Paris

Avatar
foversta
It is a nice tradition: twice per year, Cartier organizes the "rendez-vous", a kind of big exhibition which gathers the full scope of novelties, from jewelry to watchmaking without forgetting the leather goods and other accessories. The interest of this event which takes place during the day (I'm not talking about a cocktail party) is to create a specific atmosphere, a mise en scène in order to present these novelties with fun and with a common thread. The "rendez-vous" is usually organized in a hotel in Paris during the Fashion Weeks to take advantage of the presence of a lot of journalists and bloggers from any place in the world. And why in a hotel? Just to be sure to have a surface large enough to display all these novelties and to play with the different rooms.....Story

Cartier: new exchangeable straps system and the new Rondo Solo 36mm Automatic

Avatar
foversta
Cartier takes advantage of the back-to-school period to give us at the same time two very good news! The first one is the unveiling of a wide range of exchangeable straps (coming with the system of flash pins and the double adjustable folding clasp) for the Ronde and Tank Solo. Not less than 14 colors based on 3 calf types (smooth, grained and Trieste) are thus available for customers to easily transform the style of their watches, making them more casual or more formal depending on the circumstances... or ... ...Story

A visit at the Cartier boutique in Rome

Avatar
foversta
I will tell you what is for me a perfect morning in Rome. I leave my hotel, I walk a bit to reach the Via Condotti and I take a delicious Cappucino at the Antico Caffe Greco. Then I visit one of most prestigious boutiques of the luxury street of the Eternal City: Cartier. Actually, it is just located a few meters from the Caffe Greco so you can imagine that the combination of both visits is a bit mandatory! And well, a good coffee is required before entering the Cartier boutique...Story

With the Cartier Calibre Diver in Rome

Avatar
foversta
The Cartier Calibre Diver was one of the watches that accompanied me during my traditional summer holidays in Rome. A waterproof watch seems indeed essential not to enjoy the beach at Ostia, but to take advantage of the fountains of the city! Rome has always been a city of water! In fact, I really appreciate this watch because I think it manages to retain a certain elegance despite its main function, to be a diver watch. The integration of typical elements of the Cartier design like the Roman numerals, the sword hands or the crown set with a cabochon gives to this piece a rather original style, clearly different from competitive models in the same segment. Its case, barely thicker than the "classic" Calibre offers a quite slender diameter/height ratio taking into account its 42mm diameter...Story

Hands on review of the Cartier Calibre Diver Blue

Avatar
foversta
The Cartier Calibre Diver was unveiled at the SIHH 2014. It is first real diving watch from Cartier and despite this premiere, it is distinguished by the respect for the codes of the brand in an unusual context. Hardly thicker than the basic Calibre Automatic (11mm vs 10mm), the Calibre Diver offers a slender (thanks to the 42mm diameter) and rather elegant style allowing it to be at ease in all circumstances even far from... an aquatic environment...Story
