Maillon de Cartier Gives Bracelet Watches An Architectural Twist
The traditional chain-link bracelet is a fashion staple that hasn't seen much disruption to its design over time. Cartier changes that scenario by giving it a twist, literally. The rectangular links have been curved and bended for a visually striking torsion not unlike the twisted skyscrapers favoured by many of today's architects.
Developed entirely in its watchmaking maison, the square dial has also been angled accordingly to match this exciting bracelet shape.
The watches are crafted in yellow, pink or white gold that includes partially or fully set with diamonds options. The most precious watch in the collection is in 18k white gold decorated with 486 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bracelet, case, dial and crown. A version in yellow gold set with 580 brilliant-cut diamonds and a black lacquer dial is limited to 50 pieces.
