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 one 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 World War. The result was this extraordinary bracelet watch that combines yellow gold, diamonds and white gold. The yellow-gold structure is very uncommon with two worked strips integrated to the case in yellow gold too and linked together with a single buckle. The rectangular case is located directly between the two stripes. The dial is completed by Arabic numerals and is covered by a yellow and white-gold protection with diamonds that embellish the entire structure. The epitome of understated elegance, this bracelet watch is chic as well as functional.
