Founding of maison Cartier
The maison Cartier was founded in 1847. Alfred Cartier and his son Louis were always interested in the measurement of time.The three sons of Alfred Cartier called:Pierre, Louis and Jacques were put in charge to run the Maison's international operations.They created their own world of inspiration and used their energy to become one of the most prestigious high jewelry maison in the world. Cartier differentiates itself from the competition by its values of inventiveness,creativity and thus Cartier is quite the master of time.
The watches of the maison Cartier are very unique, from the mystery clocks to the fine watchmaking creation and it is constantly evolving, thanks to the most experienced master watchmakers. Every watchmaker by Cartier has to do a training that takes over ten years and it covers all the skills und unique expertise involved in assembling and regulating a Grande Complication watch.
Poinçon de Genève
The Poinçon de Genève is a certificate awarded for remarkable finishes and it is also a sign of excellence that honours the legacy of the master watchmakers in Geneva. Poinçon de Genève is a guarantee of fine quality,craftmanship and knowledge.
The Cartier watch exhibition is an important message for the men and women driven by the same passion.
Ballon Bleu de Cartier is definitely the best selling collection, with its rounded silhouette and the crown with the sapphire cabochon that is protected by an arch and in my opinion it is the most creativ and innovativ watch that I saw at the exhibition.
I want to thank the entire team of Les Ambassadeurs for the warm welcome.
