Ever since it first began crafting fine watches and jewellery back in 1847, Cartier has been a byword for luxury. The Parisian house is also universally revered as the brand that popularised the wristwatch at the turn of the 20th century, with the introduction of the original Santos. Ultimately, the brand stands for desirability - nothing says you've made it quite like Cartier. Over and above a strongly defined character, the aesthetic emphasis of the Drive de Cartier watch changes with each different model. Its case, in pink gold or steel, is fitted with a black, grey or white guilloche dial marked by Roman numerals punctuated with sword-shaped hands.
