Understated Luxury: Cartier Watches For Him

Since Louis-Francois Cartier founded the brand in 1847, a Cartier watch has been the epitome of elegance and luxury. Within Cartier’s men’s watch collection, you will find a sophisticated mix of classic models and newer, innovative designs. If you’re looking to upgrade your current timepiece, these are some of our favourite styles for men.

The Tonneau

Since its release back in 1906, Cartier’s timeless Tonneau watch been a favourite among men of all ages. Shaped like a parentheses opening on a curved oblong flinqué dial, the watch’s curved shape adds a distinctive element of depth to an otherwise relatively minimalist watch design. Featuring roman numeral and skeleton designs, the Tonneau is simple in appearance but advanced in terms of technicality and movement, which is dictated by the contours of the watch.

The Ronde de Cartier

Offering an understated and contemporary design, the Ronde de Cartier preserves the signature features of Cartier watches. The combination of roman numerals, deep blue sword-shaped hands and a rail-track minute circle produces a sophisticated and distinctly masculine design. The Ronde de Cartier comes in steel, yellow gold and rose gold metals with both leather and chain link bracelets available.

The Santos de Cartier

The Santos de Cartier revolutionised the watch industry by being the first modern watch designed to be worn on the wrist. Since its release, the Santos de Cartier watch has been reinvented with the changing times while cleverly retaining its signature style. Available in both roman numeral and skeleton dials, the current designs draw upon the watch’s original form and oversized proportions. We love the combination of marine blue and silver, for a sporty take on a business look.

The Drive de Cartier

Produced in 2016, the Drive de Cartier is one of the brand’s latest models. The watch boasts a unique angled cushion shape, which places the watch face somewhere between a circle and a square. With sleek lines, a domed crystal and a sapphire dial, the watch combines style and practicality. The Drive de Cartier comes in yellow gold, rose gold, and steel metals with a variety of interchangeable leather strap options.
