THE SOPHISTICATED WORLD OF AN ENTHUSIAST’S WATCH
Considered as the best point guard of his generation, American basketball player Chris Paul (nicknamed "CP3") has played in nine All-Star matches, been selected seven times for the All-NBA team and won two Olympic gold medals, among many other prestigious honours.
An illustrious sporting career that represents just some of what he has achieved.
You'd be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't enjoyed the fruits of Dominique Ansel’s labour already.
Winner of the James Beard Award 2014 for Best Patisserie Chef and creator of the famous Cronut that found fans around the world, chef Ansel is involved in various successful initiatives.
With years of experience in film, Chang Chen has developed a free and independent identity without ever losing anything of his judgement or reason.
Whether in an atmosphere of adversity or joyfulness, his motivation comes from the heart: achieving excellence in his art and ensuring this new collaboration with the Drive de Cartier is successful.
170 years of style and elegance
Cartier has only ever offered exceptional items
Winston Churchill commissioned Cartier London to make this 9K gold cigarette case in the shape of an envelope for his son Randolph in 1932.
The case bears the young man's address – Churchill's way of saying that Randolph was scatterbrained. This thoughtful gift demonstrated the future British Prime Minister's sense of humour; Randolph later presented the item to King Farouk of Egypt, who had become utterly charmed by the piece.
Created by Cartier New York circa 1933, this black enamel and 14K gold watch doubles as a money clip. This uniquely stylish item lets you check both the time and your finances in a single glance.
An additional feature: its ingenuity. Once the owner slipped it into their pocket, the watch pivots to protect its dial.
This 14K gold belt buckle/watch was introduced by Cartier New York in the mid 20th century.
It is also known as the "golfer's watch". Worn far from the wrist, the item could accompany its owner on to the fairways without subjecting the movement of the watch to the impact from hitting the ball.
Can you wear your watch while you sleep?
It is better not to.
Especially if you move a lot in your sleep.
One false move and the dial could hit a wall, the bedside table or the face of your other half.
To avoid wear or damage to your timepiece we suggest that you take it off before you go to sleep and store it in a safe place.
Should I fasten my watch loosely or tightly around my wrist?
There is no strict rule on this. It's all a matter of personal preference and convenience.
However, we don’t recommend wearing any watch too loosely, so as to avoid the risk of it turning around on the wrist and being subjected to accidental impacts.
Generally speaking, you should allow just enough space between the watch and the wrist to be able to fit your finger.
Where should you put on your watch?
Preferably around the wrist!
But whereabouts exactly?
In the bedroom. Over the bed.
Because occasionally, watches can be dropped when putting them on in the morning.
A fall of one metre onto tiles or wooden flooring is very damaging for a watch.
