Shaped watches, chronograph movements and skeleton movements are all instantly recognisable: the common denominator is Cartier. Explore the many Cartier watch collections at Berrys, such as Santos De Cartier - a watch based on the concept of form. The Pasha de Cartier range, a cult watch since 1985. The Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch collection, created in 2007 and already becoming an icon, and the Panthère de Cartier Watch collection, which takes its name from the bracelet. And not forgetting the classic Cartier Tank Watch collection, at the heart of Creative minds since 1917.
Cartier watches have evolved in so many ways, shapes and forms since their very first masterpiece. Above all Cartier watch creations, the Cartier Tank is by far one of the brand’s most noteworthy designs. Worn by the likes of Princess Diana, Jackie Kennedy and Angelina Jolie, the vintage-inspired rectangular case shape mimics the original Renault fighting machines of the First World War. Cartier Tank watches now come in many forms; the new Tank Must, Tank Francaise and Tank Americaine to mention just a few. Whilst adopting the same basic foundations, these newer versions have, along the way, been implemented with more modern values, to reward the new coming members of the Cartier watch universe, with something a little different each time.
The French watchmakers have introduced a long line of individual collections – each one designed for a specific purpose and personality. Cartier Ballon Bleu watches are distinct in their elegant, round design. Taking inspiration from the swooping curves of a beautifully round balloon, the watches are intended to look like floating bubbles of air on the wrist.
Other Cartier watches with a round face include the likes of the Calibre de Cartier watch collection – a family developed with an in-house movement and an unmistakable sporty edge, and the Cle de Cartier watch collection– a sophisticated curvaceous design bearing diamond encrusted bezels and lustrous brilliant cut diamond dot hour markers.
Cartier watches are also suitable for those with an affinity towards the automobile industry. Drive de Cartier watches are vintage-inspired designs that showcase cushion-shaped cases, integrated with domed sapphire crystal glass tops, and textured guilloche dials. Launched in 2016, the pedigree Cartier watch was equipped with an entirely new movement and is available in a version that provides a day and night feature, small seconds, large date and second time zone.
