You might not think of the word “contemporary” when I say Cartier watches, but it may be that you haven’t looked at their collections lately. This traditionally elegant watchmaker isn’t just stuck in the bygone era of design. In fact, it’s quite the contrary, they are keeping up with the times and offer some amazingly modern and stylish watches. Let’s look at a few of the men’s and ladies timepieces that have the most contemporary packaging:
You can’t ignore the impact of the Tank collection. Although the design has been in play for many years, the Cartier Tank has taken on a variety of different looks over this time. The Tank watches are one of those unusual designs that have been able to stand the test of time. Why is the Tank timepiece so relevant today? It has timeless appeal, breitling bentley pure and simple. The Tank watches come in 18 carat white or yellow gold and steel. They have chic, clean lines and are the epitome of Cartier class. One of my favorite ones is the ladies quartz in yellow gold. breitling chronomat The dial is white and only adorned with classy Roman numerals to mark the hours. It retails for around $16,000 because of the high gold content, and because it’s a Cartier. This is one of those pieces that you can wear for another 20 years and it would still be in vogue.
The men’s and women’s Pasha watches are another collection worth mentioning. The Pasha watches have also been produced for more than a few years, but they continue to be appealing to us. These timepieces have large, round dials that are geometrically accented. The Pasha dials only display quarter hours with delicate indexes. Like all Cartier’s watches, the Pasha watches feature a blue sapphire cabochon on the crown. Although this watch is offered in a variety of finishes, I prefer the brushed steel version. It looks so clean and well made. The automatic men’s in steel will run you approximately $9,000.
At the end of the day, if you have the money to invest in a Cartier timepiece, you really should. This watchmaker has a long history of success in this arena and they not only offer exceptional Swiss quality, but are elegantly appointed and packaged, as well. Don’t just think of old world luxury when you think of Cartier…think also of updated, chic, and modern.
