The story behind the manufacturing of Cartier watches is unique. In the early years of 1900, an aviator friend of the Cartier jewelry house complained of the difficulty of reading time from a fob watch while flying. Soon a solution came into reality - a prototype of a wristwatch was born and found its place around the wrist of the aviator friend which gave him freedom from the fob watch. Cartier which was promulgated by the Prince of Wales in 1902 as the ‘Jeweler of Kings for King of Jewelers’, uses metals like platinum ( Platinum was given status by this house as an invincible expensive metal), steel, titanium and colorful gold like yellow, white and pink, for its watches. Cartier watches can be found in every size and shape - from mini to extra large size, from round to rectangular. The line displays jewelry watches, quartz watches, and watches with mechanical movement requiring manual or automatic winding.
