Hands On With The Cartier ID Two

In 2009, Cartier introduced the ID One, the first adjustment free watch — it is lubrication free and insensitive to shocks, temperature and magnetic fields. The Cartier ID Two builds on the original concept — and takes it to another level.

Cartier Masse Secrète Panther Ladies' Watch

February 14, 2012 | Cartier, SIHH



The Cartier Masse Secrète Panther Decor Ladies' watch was unveiled during the Salon International de la Haute Horology show last month in Geneva and although it may look like a typical haute joaillerie piece -- it is not.

Yes, it has the prerequisite diamonds, in their perfect pavé settings -- but there is a secrète. The Panther motif you see on the dial - in white gold, paved with diamonds and black lacquer spots - is not just for looks. The Panther is also the oscillating weight which winds the movement's mainspring, which powers the hour and minute hands. The mechanical movement is visible through the sapphire case back, and because of this unique configuration, has the aesthetics of a manual movement, while maintaining the convenience of an automatic. Furthermore, Cartier watchmakers took special care to make sure the Panther does not spin uncontrollably, as it is on the dial side and that would deter from reading the time.


SIHH 2012: Cartier Tank Anglaise

February 2, 2012 | Cartier, SIHH


Cartier introduced a large selection of timepieces at the Salon Internation de la Haute Horology (SIHH) last month. Apart from the amazing minute repeater tourbillon, the beautiful high jewelry pieces and the skeletonized Santos - the model that really stands out to me is the Cartier Tank Anglaise.

The Cartier Tank Anglaise is a generously sized tank-shaped (rectangular) wristwatch. It is part of the newly revived vintage inspired Cartier Tank series, which also includes the Tank Américaine and Tank Française.
