Watches & Wonders is currently underway in Geneva, with some of the biggest names in the industry revealing their latest timepieces. 

This year, Cartier is leading the way, with some fabulous new editions in its collection. 

Amongst the releases, there is the Privé Tortue Monopoussoir Chronograph, the Santos de Cartier Dual Time, the Santos-Dumont Rewind, the Reflection de Cartier Watch and the Animal Jewellery Watch.

Highlights from the collection 

Reflection de Cartier 

Reflection de Cartier

This fabulous collection is available in several versions: yellow and rose gold, one in diamond-set white gold and two in white gold paved with coloured stones. 

The collection includes two completely new creations. The first celebrates Louis Cartier’s peacock motif, with its blue and green chromatic harmony, consisting principally of chrysoprases, obsidian, emeralds, Paraiba tourmalines and an iridescent blue-green lacquer wrapped around chiselled gold. 

The second introduces a new chromatic harmony around opal, amethysts, spessartite garnets and tiger’s eye inserts.

Discussing the new collection, Marie-Laure Cérède, Cartier’s Jewellery and Watchmaking Creative Director explained “Reflection is a veritable sculpture to wear on the wrist – like a skeletonised chain-link that must be ‘broken’ to discover the time. Disruption is woven throughout different sections interrupting the visual rhythm and flow, and a variety of angles and faces break up its roundness. It tempts disorientation by playing with reflections, playing with architecture, and continuing to defy categorisation: neither a watch nor a jewel but an entirely new kind of Cartier creation.” 

Santos de Cartier and the Santos-Dumont Collections

Santos-Dumont Rewind

These new timepieces were inspired by the legacy of aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont.

In the new collection, Cartier has revealed two newly-imagined versions of this icon. 

First, the elegant Santos-Dumont Rewind watch which changes how we traditionally tell the time. The carnelian dial is full of boldness and its subtle nuances emphasise the singularity of this limited edition in platinum. Roman numerals indicate the time in an arrangement that reverses tradition.

Second, there is the bold Santos de Cartier Dual Time watch which allows you to track two different time zones at once.  

Santos de Cartier Dual Time

Its mechanical movement with automatic winding combines two time zones, allowing you to tell the time both where you are and where you are from simultaneously, without sacrificing any resistance or reliability.
