Unexpected Encounters in Cartier’s Latest Timepiece Novelties for 2020

Brazilian actress Kaya Scodelario with a Cartier timepiece

It’s a visual symphony for the senses. Cartier’s latest timepiece novelties are a feast for the eyes and elicit admiring glances from those who covet extraordinary design and eye-catching shapes.

‘Unexpected Encounters’ is Cartier’s trademark of mixing different shapes and patterns to create one-off timepieces which are as alluring as their sparkling jewels. Unexpected silhouettes and contrasting shapes housed in the most luxurious precious metals and gemstones are what this Maison showcases in this new collection.

Debuting four new watches for 2020, Cartier once again proves they are the master of reinvention while adding flourishes to classical icons the Maison is known for.

Cartier Pasha watch in pink gold with diamonds

For the Pasha, the ubiquitous square within the circle makes this best-selling cult watch both innovative and elegant.

Bold and daring, this timepiece exudes power and grandeur and this new version for 2020 sees more sophisticated features such as the crown featuring a blue spinel or sapphire, interchangeable straps and possibilities for personalised engravings such as the owner’s initials. The diamond-encrusted version is a show-stopper and a sight to behold.

Kaya Scodelario with a yellow gold Cartier Maillon

Feminine with an avant-garde sensibility is how the Cartier’s Maillon watch can best be described. A brand new debut, whether you wear it as a functional timepiece or as a decorative bracelet, the Maillon de Cartier watch is a fabulous arsenal to have in any fashionista’s wardrobe.

The interlocking links intertwine seamlessly creating a rhythmic geometry in gold splendour while its hexagonal dial subtly blends into this watch bracelet peeking out to tell the time.

Available in pink, yellow or white gold with diamonds for those who like a little bit of glamour, there is also a precious collection version with a choice of stones in blue lacquer and tsavorite or yellow old and diamonds with black lacquer bevelled links.

Skewed to one side, the art-deco inspired Tank Asymétrique gives the wearing an unusual twist to the original Tank Américaine.

This unusual watch questions the established order of things with the elongated rectangular case is expanded, and the dial’s numerals are placed at 30 degrees to the right.

A skeleton version with a 9623 MC skeleton movement is available in pink gold with a brown or grey strap or in platinum in a blue or black strap.

A diamond version brings this skeleton to another level with an Ardillon buckle and fittingly limited to only 100 numbered pieces as part of the exclusive Cartier Privé collection.

Created by Louis Cartier back in 1904, the Santos-Dumont has earned itself a place in the hearts of many watch connoisseurs. Distinctive and versatile, this design classic suits both men and women in equal measure, putting a smile on the face of the wearer.

For 2020, Cartier has renewed this modern timepiece incorporating a square bezel with eight visible screws with a certain Je ne sais quoi that only Cartier knows.

Cartier Santos-Dumont XL in gold

Known as the Santos-Dumont XL, the XL refers to its new larger size within which beats the 430 MC mechanical movement with manual winding. The contoured case and taut lines on this newly enlarged version make it look handsome on any wrists, male or female.

A set of three watches is available in a limited engraved series and is offered alongside an exclusive edition of 30 pieces presented in a precious box.
