Louis-Francois Cartier founded Cartier Watches in 1847 and since then the world has seen the beautiful craftsmanship and design of a Cartier watch. With its beginning as watches made for royalty, these breathtaking watches have progressed throughout the years. Today there are so many different collections from which to choose the perfect luxury Cartier watch.
The Pasha collection watches have round faces and Arabic numerals around the face and is available for both men and women. A popular watch series is the Tank Americaine which is made with gold and come with a rectangular face. Cartier's Roadster series is another popular watch choice because of its sporty appearance and easily exchangeable strap that does not require any tools.
The Santos collection came about when Cartier made a watch for his friend, Alberto Santos-Dumont, a Brazilian pilot. The Santos series all have square faces, and come with either automatic or quartz movements. For a more formal look, the Santos-Dumont collection is a great choice. The newer pieces are from the Ballon Bleu series, and have Roman numerals as well as a sapphire at the center with which the hands revolve. La Dona de Cartier watches have a classic feel with an asymmetrical face and straps with either large links or alligator band. La Dona de Cartier watches are very popular with ladies and come in two sizes.
Luxury and elegance go hand in hand with the name Cartier. The watches are bold yet delicate, suitable for both casual wear and formal affairs, and are a symbol of affluence and elegance. Cartier's beautiful watches are an excellent gift for anyone.
