The Evolution of Cartier Watch Design

A Cartier watch can always be relied upon to make a fashion statement. Their designs have always managed to be classic and modern at the same time.  They’ve pioneered trends in watch-making that has changed the way we look at timepieces. Let’s take a look at Cartier’s fascinating history and explore the evolution of their watch design.

The origin of Cartier watches has surprisingly similar roots as Rolex watches, both being based in aviation. As a aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont commented to his friend, Louis Cartier, that pocket watches weren’t suited to use during flights and concurrently asked him if he could design something more fitting. Then Cartier filled a gap in the market when he created the first pilot watch for Alberto Santos Dumont. As the watch had a large contrasting dial, Dumont could read it at a glance, without losing focus of his plane’s controls. The Santos watch went on sale in 1911.

Cartier developed the Tank in 1917 during the First World War, when the British utilized tanks in warfare for the first time. The square watch’s design was based on these colossal steel giants and reminiscent of the tanks’ tracks. One special feature of the Tank was the design of its unique lugs, which were part of the case. The strap fits seamlessly on the Tank with no space between it and the case. Cartier presented the American General John J. Pershing with the first prototype. In 1919, the watch came onto the market. The design caught on quickly with Cartier’s unconventional customers. The Tank is available as both a women’s and men’s watch.

The Ballon Bleu was released by Cartier in 2006, a quirky yet elegant addition to the brand’s stable of timeless watches. The name is derived from the two most prominent details of the timepiece—the blue synthetic sapphire ‘cabochon’ that is mounted in the crown, and the spherical ‘balloon’ shape of the case. There are many different Cartier Ballon Bleu Replica watch models and they vary in size, color, price as well as material combinations. Nonetheless, each is immaculately designed and holds very high standards of craftsmanship.

All in all, watches from Cartier embody perfection unlike any other luxury brand. Every Cartier watch is worthy your time and your money.
