The Cartier watch brand in general
Cartier is a French watch and jewellery company. Louis-Francois Cartier founded the company in Paris. He himself took over the jewellery studio from his teacher. In 1859, the range of jewellery was extended to include high-quality watches and a move to the 390 m long famous boulevard of Italy took place. In 1874, the company specialised mainly in the production of today's famous Cartier watches.
