Cartier Coussin de Cartier Watch

Evening cushion

A square case featuring rounded corners rimmed with triangle gemsetting

The Coussin de Cartier watch provides a fine lesson in geometry. An inventive approach to the subject that overturns all the precepts generally taught in school. Surprising? Not really, from a Maison that has always given free rein to its unbridled creativity by exploring new stylistic territories. This year sees the cushion shape lend itself to this fascinating exercise through a collection of watches designed for evening wear. The square case with rounded corners is hemmed with precious stones of different sizes set in spirals. And because Cartier never does anything in a completely traditional way, the Coussin watch features a new type of gemsetting known as “triangle”, which enables the diamonds to be integrated directly into the case without using traditional beads. This results in less material around the gems and a spectacular increase in luminosity for a watch radiating a chic and graphic look.
