With the Constitution of 1848 came a new standard for luxury in France: founded one year prior by Louis-Francois Cartier, the Parisian house of Cartier was one of the first to use platinum in jewelry making and of the most audacious creators in terms of style and design. Indeed, Cartier did not only touch on functionality but mainly in craftsmanship in all its history, with the picks reach in the middle of the 20th century. Cartier as well as other leading jewelry manufactures had to reach new heights of innovations and designs in order to capture the hearts of females right after the First World War. The result was this extraordinary bracelet watch that combines yellow gold, diamonds and black enamel. With a total length of 173 mm, the yellow-gold structure recalls the light mesh of wool, embellished with brilliant cut diamonds of different sizes scattered all over. The rectangular case has been manufactured using black enamel, the Roman numerals are in gold and recall the champagne color of the dial. Further equipped with its original red Cartier box and the epitome of understated elegance, this bracelet watch is chic as well as functional.
