From their designs to their movements, Cartier watches are unique. They are an enduring combination of the unexpected and the classical. The exhibition at Museum Bellerive traces Cartier’s constant quest for excellence in the manufacturing of complicated watches. Creating such timepieces is a challenge that calls for technical and aesthetic creativity as well as exceptional expertise, all of which enable Cartier to take its place as a genuine creator of fine watchmaking marvels. From a Tortue single pushpiece chronograph created in 1929, to a contemporary Santos 100 Skeleton watch, Cartier interprets complications in its own inimitable way, always with a sense of elegance. The exhibition will showcase over 100 timepieces from the historical Cartier Collection and 20 contemporary fine watches, illustrating the creativity of the movements, the savoir faire and the spirit of innovation.
Like light, wind, scent, and air, we can neither see time nor hold it, yet its beautiful rhythm beats throughout each day of our lives.”
