The Maillon de Cartier watch is first and foremost a statement of style. The chain-link bracelet remains a composed centrepiece, one which plays on classic codes, whilst reinventing today’s attitudes. The Maillon de Cartier watch is a gem designed from the Cartier watchmaking studios. A precious watch that resides in the creative watchmaking repertoire of the Maison. A bracelet whose chain-links are offset and aligned on the bias by Cartier. Well-rounded and opulent, they move in time with all the ultra-feminine elegance of this Maillon de Cartier watch.
It lies at the twist of the lines, in the torsion emphasising the view within which the watch blends. This interpretation makes it possible for the instance and hyperlinks to entwine themselves in one graphic motion. An ambition to structure the watch, from the kind of its links to its faceted circumstance, radicalises the soul of this watch. Its volume is concrete, angular and dense. Emotion is in the movement and tension,” says Marie-Laure Cérède, Timepieces Creation Director.
A precious set, the Maillon de Cartier watch also unites exceptional pieces with stone that improve the design. The dials are inlaid to replicate the sequencing of these stones set in the links. The choice of stones in the blue lacquer and tsavorite version increases the kinetic relief of this watch.
A graphic contrast and effect which Cartier accentuates with a variation in yellow diamonds and gold with black lacquer bevelled links.
