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

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

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

Hands on review of the Cartier Tortue XL Day & Night (CPCP)

Avatar
foversta
It is for me the big privilege to live close to the Cartier boutique of Paris - Capucines. Don't ask me why but on a regular basis, some watches from the former Collection Privée - Cartier Paris (CPCP) become available at the boutique. It is a great news for the Cartier fans and collectors because these watches represent for me the perfect demonstration of the Cartier style: a solid horological content combined with a refined style and, from time to time, some poetic complications. So this kind of opportunity shall not be missed because they don't usually stay very long in the displays! It is the reason why I was very happy to handle today the Tortue XL Day & Night which was introduced, if i'm not wrong, at the SIHH 2008...Story

SIHH 2016: hands on review of the Cartier Panthères et Colibri watch

Avatar
foversta
One of my greatest pleasures during the SIHH is to discover the latest creative jeweled watches from Cartier. This year, one of the major pieces of the new collection of the brand is the Panthères et Colibri watch which offers an original display of the power reserve. The name of the watch immediately raises a question: why "Panthères" (panthers in French) in its plural form while clearly Cartier's favorite animal is displayed only once on the dial? This is the key point of this watch: by pushing the crown, a small baby panther pops out and the hummingbird starts to fly to stop at the power reserve level it has to indicate. Cartier thus features two of its favorite themes: the animals of course and a fun and interactive complication...Story

The Cartier Hotel has just opened!

Yesterday I had the privilege to attend a fantastic event organized by Cartier in Paris. Actually Cartier booked the full Montana hotel, located on the left bank, to organize an exhibition to the international press of the latest creations of the brand, from the leather goods to the fragrances... without forgetting of course the watches! Ready to enter the hotel and to discover the exhibition which took place in the different suites of the hotel? I started from the top of the hotel with the room dedicated to the watches. These gamblers play their ladies' jewels.....Story
