The purity of the line is Cartier’s desire to reduce the object to its purest form: structure. Easy to read and instantly understandable. Obsessed: the quest for pared-down simplicity dictates features that are recognizable at first glance. This requires a high level of expertise.

Cartier’s intelligence of design places objects seamlessly within their time as well as within the future. Contemporary, although vintage to some, these designs stand the test of time: classic, eternal, essential.
