New horizons beckon, ushering in ground-breaking and breathtaking compositions that ingeniously unite jewellery and watchmaking. The High Jewellery watch realises its full potential in these spectacular timepieces that honour the legacy of the jeweller’s art with the skill of the master watchmaker. Cartier assiduously sources, matches and even re-cuts stones in its quest to reveal the gem’s soul. This creative process goes beyond aesthetics or technical milestones – Cartier breathes life into these stones, transfiguring the splendour of these precious materials.
Cartier draws on this dual perspective to showcase a wealth of inspiration in its gems. The same incomparable expertise is deployed whether abstract or figurative, evident within the menagerie and the floral style.
For the 2017 edition, Cartier has chosen to showcase its dual fields of expertise, watchmaking and jewellery, in a glittering display of gemstones. The crossover between the two arts has inspired a dialogue which, driven by shared passion, creates beautiful shapes in pieces designed to stand the test of time. BY MONA SALEM
