Established in 1847 in France, Cartier is renowned for its high-end jewellery, fine leather accessories and watches. Cartier is steeped in history and was well regarded for its association with royalty and aristocracy. In the early 1900s Cartier unveiled a boutique in London and shortly after received a royal warrant from King Edward VII to become the king’s official purveyor of fine jewellery. The king declared Cartier as ‘jeweller to kings, king of jewellers’. Cartier invented the first men's wristwatch, the Santos, named after the aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. Cartier celebrates form as an equal to function - something that is evident in the fine design of their luxury timepieces and jewellery.
