Cartier - Maillon de Cartier

Cartier Maillon de Cartier

The Maillon de Cartier watch, characterized by the twisting of its lines, reinvents the codes of the chain-link bracelet.

The Maillon de Cartier watch is first and foremost a statement of style. The chain-link bracelet remains a composed centrepiece, one that plays on classic codes, whilst reinventing today’s attitudes. The Maillon de Cartier watch is firstly a jewel designed by 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 the ultra-feminine elegance of the Maillon de Cartier watch.

It all lies in the twist of the lines, in the torsion emphasising the perspective within which the watch dial blends. This interpretation allows the case and links to entwine themselves in one graphic motion.  Rectangular links, a hexagonal dial, bevelled brancards: the design of the Maillon de Cartier watch incites Cartier’s rhythmic geometry. An ambition to structure the watch, from the form of its links to its faceted case, radicalises the spirit of the watch. Its volume is tangible, angular and dense.

“We wanted to deconstruct the bracelet and transcend its design through a volume approach. Emotion is in the movement and tension,” says Marie-Laure Cérède, Timepieces Creation Director.

A precious collection, the Maillon de Cartier watch also unites exceptional pieces with stones that enhance the design. The dials are inlaid to echo the sequencing of the stones set in the links. The choice of stones in the blue lacquer and tsavorite version adds to the kinetic relief of the watch.

A graphic effect and contrast that Cartier accentuates with a version in yellow gold and diamonds with black lacquer bevelled links.
