History of Cartier

cartier logo

Cartier was founded in Paris by jewelry apprentice Louis-Francois Cartier in 1847. He had inherited a jewelry shop from his master Adolphe Picard. Within four years, the company was serving the court of Napoleon III, even selling Empress Eugenie a silver tea service in 1859. As one of the oldest surviving jewelers in the world, Cartier has catered to the whims of a range of clientele, from royalty and movie stars to business men and women. Cartier certainly enjoys a reputation for selling some of the finest quality watches, jewelry and accessories in the world.

Cartier stayed within the Cartier family for years. 1899, Louis Cartier joined the family firm and brought a love of mechanical pocket watches. He wanted the company to build an impressive Cartier watch brand. A few short years later, he got his chance. In 1904, Louis Cartier met with Brazilian aviator, Alberto Santos-Dumont, who complained of the unreliable pocket watches he had to use during flight. Cartier decided to take on the challenge and designed a flat wristwatch designed a watch to be worn on the wrist with a leather strap. It also featured a distinctive square bezel. This new way to wear a watch quickly became a huge hit with Santos-Dumont and others. This is how the famous "Santos" watch was created. The fact that Cartier still produces this watch today says much about its initial design.

Cartier did not stop with simple wrist watch designs. Rather, the most expensive Cartier watch to sell is the Cartier Phoenix Décor Secret Watch. Shaped like a phoenix, this watch is made of white gold and is covered with 3,010 brilliant-cut diamonds. This stunning watch easily hides its hidden watch face among the brilliant diamonds and gold.

Cartier watches are extraordinary pieces of craftsmanship. They can be found with movements from Audemars-Piguet, Movado, Vacheron Constantin and Le Coultre. Cartier became so adept at creating unique jewelry and watches that King Edward VII of England referred to Cartier as "the jeweler of kings and the king of jewelers." He liked the company so much that he ordered 27 tiaras for his coronation in 1902, and issued a royal warrant to Cartier in 1904.

By 1942, the company no longer had strong leadership and began to falter. In 1972, a group of investors installed Alain Perrin as CEO, giving the company a chance regain its lost ground. During this time, the company developed and used the famous "Le Must de Cartier" line. This marketing plan worked wonders for the company, as did its new versions of classic watches like the "Santos." Cartier was able to be re-establish as an innovative and fashionable watch and jewelry maker in the luxury market once more.
