Cartier - Papyrus watch

Cartier Papyrus watch

Both watch and jewelry, the Papyrus watch from Cartier showcases the brand’s dual fields of expertise, watchmaking and jewellery.

Cartier liberates the exquisite splendour of this unusual ensemble of 32 cushion-shaped emeralds for a total weight of 38.20 carats in this piece of art.

Upon encountering this extraordinary set of Zambian emeralds, the designers of the Maison immediately grasped the need to showcase the entire ensemble within a suitably sized mounting. The verdant pastel hue of the gemstones reminding foliage, the designers selected a papyrus motif, a favoured form in drawings from the Cartier Archives. They chose to creatively interpret the papyrus flower, a decorative motif typical of ancient Egypt, liberally redesigning the papyrus leaf into a broad form flaring outwards in a stylised and modern dynamic rendering.
