SANTOS DE CARTIER

The Santos de Cartier was one of the first avi­a­tor watches ever made, and re­mains in­stantly recog­nis­able due to its rounded square case and ex­posed screws.

CARTIER TANK

Cre­ated all the way back in 1917, this rec­tan­gu­lar watch gained pop­u­lar­ity for its unique lugs, which are ba­si­cally seam­less ex­ten­sions of the case it­self.

BALLON BLEU DE CARTIER

Cartier gives the clas­sic round case its own spin by adding a crown “guard” over its sap­phire cabo­chon, giv­ing the case an even curvier pres­ence.

CLE DE CARTIER

Re­leased just in 2015, the Cle de Cartier has a round face but its ex­tended horn-shaped lugs give the ap­pear­ance of an ovoid case.
