Footnotes

  • Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by Louis-François Cartier, who in 1899 handed over to his three sons. They would establish the company internationally, making the Cartier a favourite among the elite. Named "King of Jewellers", the brand was quick to turn its attention to watches. Cartier created ground breaking pieces such as the mystery clocks, high fashion wristwatches, carriage and jewellery watches with oriental Art Deco designs, including the colourful "Tutti Frutti" jewels.
