In 1847, Cartier was founded in Paris by Louis-François Cartier, a master jeweller. However, it was his grandsons, Pierre, Louis and Jacques who would ultimately bring the brand to worldwide prominence, opening boutiques in Paris, London and New York
Who other than Louis Cartier was capable of granting the wish of famous Brazlilian aviator Santos Dumont, to be able to tell time while flying? This friendship, formed in 1904, yielded one of the first ever wristwatches. The iconic model is reinterpreted here with a slightly curved case embellished with exposed screws, modest and elegant in equal measures.
