It will not get cooler during a heat wave, but it is certainly a lot more bearable when you read the temperature of this thermometer.

This unique thermometer was made around 1915 by Maison Cartier. The rose quartz tablet with black enamelled bowl and rose-cut diamond detail, has a ruby cabochon and a diamond flower head on every corner. The golden and white enamel pieces rest on a rectangular rose quartz base and have a total height of 18.0 cm, and is signed by Cartier N.Y

This unique and expensive thermometer was estimated at GBP 18,000 – 20,000. It eventually sold for £ 22,500 on June 13, 2017 at Christie’s London.

 

 

 

 

 

Cartier Carat

Carat Cartier for women banner

French ‘Haute Joaillier’ Cartier introduces a new breath-taking perfume for women, Cartier Carat. Cartier Carat perfume is all about a precious and luxurious perfume, just like a priceless diamond. A lot of perfumes are released each day, but not all of them deserve to be bought or even smelled. The French Maison is always delighting and seducing its wearers with must-have fragrances that are simply irresistible and tempting. 

Mathilde Laurent wanted to create a perfume that would shine equally, lively and intense as diamonds do.

Cartier Carat is created by the in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent as a powdery/floral perfume with floral hints to make it very sensual, daring, and modern. A flower full of life. An explosion of pleasure and freshness with molecules of joy loaded with crystalline energy. To accomplish this, Mathilde Laurent desided to imitate an optical phoneme that is characteristic of diamonds: diffration of color. So she choose seven different fresh flowers that, when combined, formed a new, abstract flower.

The composition represents the colors of a rainbow in the form of flowers, violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow. It opens with seductive ylang-ylang along with floral accords of violet, iris, and hyacinth calmed with sweet honeysuckle and aromatic spring tulips.

Carat Cartier for women

Cartier Carat has a gorgeous sparkling design inspiring a precious diamond coloured in 7 different attractive shades. 

Cartier Carat is available as 30, 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum. 

 

 

 

 

Art Deco Desk Clock by Cartier

6019173_master

The Cartier tradition of clock and watch making extends almost as far back as the founding of the company. In 1898, Louis Cartier, one of the three Cartier brothers and grandson of founder Louis-François, moved to 13 rue de La Paix with his father, Alfred. Louis was a talented creator of jewels and art objects, and confirmed his talent by tying his craft with clock making traditions, lost now for more than a century.

Thereafter, Cartier’s clocks, table clocks, and watches were manufactured with an emphasis on perfection, beauty and originality. Clock making, at first a secondary activity, became the predominant activity and prestige of Cartier.

Ocean’s 8 movie starring Cartier’s historic necklace is hitting the screens

DdQ5twnU8AAM5F1

French Maison Cartier took on a new motion venture in the film Ocean’s 8 as the exclusive jewellery partner. This collaboration comes together naturally as the all-female lead movie complements Cartier’s ethos of empowering women with the boldness to be themselves. It is now opening in the theatres this June, featuring the recreation of a historic high jewellery Cartier necklace as the centre of the plot.

Ocean’s 8 is a feminist reboot of the 2001 Warner Bros. film Ocean’s Eleven. Instead of Brad Pitt, George Clooney and friends, we get an all-female lead cast starring Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, American Horror Story’s Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and even singer Rihanna and rapper Nora Num aka Awkwafina,

The movie’s premise surrounds Debbie Ocean, estranged sister to the trilogy’s Danny Ocean; rather than hitting Vegas in some macho caper, she attempts to pull off a jewel heist at the Met Gala. The crown jewel of the film is none other than one of Cartier’s most iconic jewellery pieces.

In real life, the necklace was designed for Maharaja of Nawanagar back in 1931 and it was named after Jeanne Toussaint, who was the creative director of Cartier at the time. The original necklace even included the Queen of Holland diamond which alone weighed a whopping 136.25 carats and was known as ‘the finest cascade of coloured diamonds in the world’.. The replica was resized to suit Anne Hathaway.

For this cinematographic project, the featured necklace – to be worn by Anne Hathaway – is a high jewellery replica created with the blueprint from the original sketch, composed of colourless diamonds. While it is chosen to be the centre of the plot, the Toussaint Necklace will not be the only Cartier creation featured in the movie. From jewellery to watches, the Maison’s Cartier collection and high jewellery collection will all make appearance during the pivotal Met Gala scene – much like they did on the actual gala this year.

 

 

 

 

Panthère de Cartier with Annabelle Wallis

CARTIER-PANTHERE-DE-CARTIER-COLLECTION-FILM-STARRING-ANNABELLE-WALLIS.jpg

Cartier’s new ambassador Annabelle Walis incarnates unforgettable Panthère de Cartier. Appearances can be deceiving. Behind her luminous complexion, blue eyes and gentle manner, the French Maison discovered a great strength of character, a fearless spirit and a hunger for self-expression: the soul of a panther, driven and determined to turn convention on its head and get her teeth into something.

I found that Panthère de Cartier resonates with the forces and energy that drive me as a woman.

Annabelle Walis

The Panthère de Cartier watch owes its timelessness to the precision of its proportions. More than a timepiece, it is also a piece of jewelry. Faithful to the aesthetic of the original model, this iconic piece is as glamorous as ever, yet resolutely modern in its design.

Streamlined, authentic and sophisticated, it combines the very best of Cartier design. Tiny screws punctuate the bezel with style, while the flexible links of the gold bracelet coil around the wrist. The soft square shape, legendary octagonal sapphire winding crown, and Roman numerals are other signature features.

Nothing has altered in its lines, design or bracelet; the Panthère de Cartier watch exhibits that rare ability to stand the test of time. It is as contemporary and edgy as ever.

On the background of the new Panthère de Cartier video’s, featuring Annabelle Walis, you hear Donna Summer’s timeless dancetrack I Feel Love.

 

 

 

 

Jake Gyllenhaal Is The New Face Of The Iconic Santos de Cartier

With a functional and elegant design, the Santos de Cartier watch was first developed in 1904. The latest interpretation of the square-face timepiece, which features an interchangeable leather strap and bracelet, was unveiled in Geneva in January.

During this year’s Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva, ‘Haute Joaillier’ and watchmaker Cartier unveiled its new Santos de Cartier timepiece. Speaking of the piece, the brand said during its presentation that “…there is a love story in the world with the Santos” and it looks like that love story is set to continue thanks to the unveiling of the brand’s newest campaign face.

American actor Jake Gyllenhaal has been revealed the new face of Santos de Cartier and, his appointment is particularly momentous seeing as the actor is the first celebrity face of the French Maison.

The Brokeback Mountain star is to appear in a commercial for the Santos watch, which is to stream online and in movie theatres later this spring. This will be the first Cartier advertisement to feature a well-known name. It will also be one of Gyllenhaal’s few official brand endorsements. Back in 2017, the 37-year old actor and producer became a Calvin Klein ambassador and appeared as a caring father alongside model Liya Kebede in a black-and-white commercial shot by Cary Fukunaga for the company’s Eternity fragrance

In a statement, the brand said that Jake ’embodies the Santos de Cartier man. A man who commits utterly and does nothing by halves. A man who defines fearless as honest and true to himself. Jake Gyllenhaal reveals a new side to his talent with every film, performing a wide variety of roles. Cartier was drawn to his invincible style and fearless spirit’.

Cartier Santos de Cartier

The man who inspired the original Santos was Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. In 1904, Louis Cartier created the wrist watch for his friend so that he could easily tell the time while flying. Ever since, the timepiece has become a mainstay in Cartier’s collection, evolving over time but retaining its glorified spot next to other historic creations like the Tank, Tortue, Pasha and Panthere.

An enduring style in Cartier’s horological offering, the Santos de Cartier has been updated for 2018 with a new QuickSwitch function that allows wearers to easily switch between metal and leather bracelets (of which there are 17 colours to choose from) to personalise the watch to your look.

The campaign was shoot by Matthew Brookes. Jake will appear in a film advertisement for the piece which is due to be released this spring.

Released earlier this year at Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Genève (SIHH), the Panthère de Cartier collection now manifests its feminine allure further with an exciting choice of bracelets – available in a double or triple loop, and with chain links in yellow gold, pink gold or white gold that coil seductively around the wrist and lower arm.
