Vintage Cartier Watches

Referred to by King Edward VII of England as "the jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers” (and sported by contemporary royalties like Kate Middleton), Cartier remains one of the reigning watch brands in the world. Founded in Paris in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, the brand is responsible for the world’s first modern wrist watch launched in 1904, the Santos, named after Brazilian pioneer aviator, Alberto Santos-Dumont. Since then, the brand has released an array of equally game-changing watches as well as jewellery, the latter with a fan base including style icons like Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor.

Cartier watches are recognisable by their imaginative but timeless shapes. Some of the classic styles, with versions for both men and women, are Ballon Bleu (named for its sapphire cabochon); Tank (introduced in 1917 and inspired by the tanks on the Western front); Drive (as the name suggests: automotive influenced); the aforementioned Santos; and Cle. With an emphasis on smart watches rather than trending sports-nodding ones, Cartier’s repertoire hosts both formal and semi-formal styles, and signature elements include the blue steel hands. Masterfully aligning class with opulence, Cartier has become one of the most distinguished luxury watch brands in the world with sought-after time pieces that blend tradition with cutting-edge technology. In later years, Cartier has also developed close connections with the art and fashion worlds: style icon Chloe Sevigny has claimed her most priced piece of jewellery is her Cartier Panthère ring, and one of their late jewellery collections was showcased at the runway presentation of Philip Lim.

OfV says: As evidenced by their continued championing of timeless smart watches, Cartier acts beyond the fleeting fashions of the day and is strongly rooted in their history and signature style. Whether you’re after a formal business watch in gold or a modern steel watch for the everyday, our offering of vintage Cartier watches and pre-owned Cartier watches boasts cult pieces in pristine condition which will live with you for years to come. Bold but refined, traditionally crafted but highly contemporary in appearance, the luxurious and imaginative appearance of a vintage or second hand Cartier watch will enliven both on and off-duty looks.

At Open for Vintage, we consider everyone as a collector with a desire to possess beautiful things with a story worth living on. Our curated edit of unique and contemporary vintage and pre-owned fashion pieces are hand-picked for their individuality, relevance, and of course, style appeal.
