The face of Cartier
The famous Maison Cartier was founded in the year 1847, by Louis-Francois Cartier in Paris. Since the end of the 19th century, their watchmaking factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds has been the source of timepieces that excel in quality and design with precise movements and timelessly beautiful enclosures.
In the middle of the 20th century, Cartier experienced a crisis. After the death of Pierre Cartier, the company was bought by investors.
Cartier used to be known mainly for watches with quartz movements, but nowadays the manufactory can also look at an impressive variety of mechanical calibers that are increasingly used in their own models.
