Cartier is synonymous with Paris. A quick glance through the brand’s history shows you that it is as much a story about the emergence of a boom city during the Belle Époque era of the late 19th Century as it is of the eponymous company founded by Louis-François Cartier in 1847. But despite this link, some of the most innovative Cartier products are created far from the romantic French capital. Welcome to Switzerland – home to Cartier’s flourishing watch business. And we do mean flourishing – in terms of turnover Cartier are one of the watch industry’s biggest players.Author’s Note: It was a cold day in March, earlier this year, when we paid a visit to the home of Cartier to understand how its new watches are developed and to see key aspects of the manufacturing process. We came away with a clear appreciation for the balance of technology and craftsmanship employed at Cartier – the very latest manufacturing technology often sits right alongside traditional manual watchmaking skills. It was quite a day. We’re excited to share this with you, any thoughts or comments please contact us.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
