Cartier are, without question one of the world’s biggest fashion houses, but when it comes to men’s luxury watches, they don’t often achieve the same level of recognition as other leading watchmakers in the industry such as Rolex, Breitling, IWC and Baume et Mercier.
But if they continue to create the sort of eye-catching and undeniably luxurious timepieces that they are becoming synonymous with, they will certainly be amongst the most sought after luxury watches before long.
When it comes to pioneering design and a dedication to crafting exceptional watches, Cartier are right up there with the best in the business and they are one of the most recognisable watch brands on the market due to their incredibly unique designs.
If you’re on the lookout for the ultimate in luxury and style then Cartier watches for men should undoubtedly be one of your chief considerations and you can see just how impressive their timepieces are below:
Cartier Tank – Price £9,700 ($15,000) Approx – As you can see, there is a certain understated luxury essence to the men’s Cartier Tank watches and despite the price-tag, you know that it is money well spent to have such an impressive timepiece upon your wrist. The Cartier Tank watch above has many fine features including 18ct rose gold casing, sapphire crystal glass, hand-wound Cartier Calibre 430MC in-house mechanical movement and brown alligator leather strap.
Cartier Roadster – Price £7,000 ($11,000) Approx – The Roadster collection of watches from Cartier is a fairly recent incarnation from the French watchmakers, having only made their debut in 2001 (despite the vintage style of the timepieces). Taking their design inspiration from 1950s & 60s style race cars, the sleek, stylish and elegant nature of these luxury watches definitely makes them stand out from the crowd.
Cartier Calibre de Cartier – Price £5,000 ($8,000) Approx – Without doubt one of the French watchmaker’s most popular and prestigious collections, the Calibre de Cartier series of watches symbolises their quest for watchmaking excellence. This collection’s most notable feature is the fact it was the first series of luxury watches from Cartier to have watch movements developed in-house which was a significant step forward in their watchmaking endeavours. These breath taking watches really do symbolise everything that is great about luxury timepieces and if you want a phenomenally stylish and endlessly elegant watch, the Calibre de Cartier collection would be a good place to start.
