Discover the long history of the Cartier brand
The company began as a destination for bespoke jewelry and timepieces. Now, it has flourished into one of the most highly regarded watchmakers in the world. Cartier watches are not just a symbol of luxury and sophistication, they are a piece of history.
Cartier goes back to a small jewellery shop at the 29 rue Montorgueil in Paris, which Louis-Francois Cartier took over in 1847 from his teacher Adolphe Picard.
Initially, jewellry was made in pure craftsmanship. The company founder, with his extraordinary products, was able to meet the noble clientele of Princess Mathilde, the niece of Napoleon I and the cousin of Emperor Napoleon III.
It was Alfred Cartier, the son of the jeweler, who also convinced his father to develop the first wristwatches and to include them in the product range of Maison Cartier.In 1898 Alfred Cartier's son Louis also joined the family business. In addition to pocket watches and wrist watches, he also made pendulum clocks at Cartier.
The early 1900s also mark a time when Cartier introduced several models that have since become icons for the brand. Cartier has continued to grow into the 21stcentury.Their one-of-a-kind aesthetic and commitment to excellence have allowed them to be highly regarded by peers and collectors alike.
