Why We Love it

Introduced in 2016, the Drive de Cartier constitutes something rare for the famed Parisian maison: a fresh design. 

With its curved case, domed crystal, and sapphire crystal, the Drive de Cartier is at once unique while remaining identifiably ‘Cartier’ in style — simultaneously elegant while highly legible and versatile, it’s the type of watch one is tempted to wear every day, even if its design perhaps relegates it more toward special occasions. 

This Drive de Cartier is a sumptuous precious metal model dating to the 2020s. Housed in a svelte 39mm yellow gold case with a sapphire crystal and a sapphire cabochon crown, it features a sunburst silver dial with painted black Roman indices, a blued steel ‘sword’ handset, and an inner minute track. Powered by the hand-wound Cartier Calibre 430 MC movement, it comes paired to a grey alligator leather strap with a yellow gold, signed pin buckle.

The Drive has to be one of the most compelling, dynamic dress watch designs of the past decade. And with a classic solid yellow gold construction, it's even more stunning. 

We love these - so have a look!

Brand Story

+
Despite being a purveyor of haute joaillerie, Cartier has had a long tradition of making watches.
It started in 1907, when founder Louis Cartier made what was one of the first wristwatches for his friend Alberto Santos-Dumont. In the following years, the brand made a name for itself with its most famous wristwatch, the Tank, in all its multitudinous forms.
Cartier introduced the Tank in 1917 — which was supposedly inspired by the Renault FT-17 tanks seen on the battlefields of World War I — with a run of six pieces. (According to legend, these were given to American General John J. Pershing and his staff.) Cartier took the look of the Renault tank's treads and applied it to the watch’s lugs, which were integrated via brancards into the case itself. That first run of six pieces increased to thirty-three by 1920, and by the end of the 20th Century, that number stood well in the hundreds of thousands. Indeed, in sheer volume alone, the Tank — in all its various models — is Cartier's largest line of watches.
The Tank Louis was introduced in 1922, followed close on the heels of the Asian-influenced Tank Chinoise. The Chinoise, released amidst a mania for jewelry inspired by the Orient, has a square rather than rectangular case and lugs that resemble the portico of a Chinese pagoda.
From its debut, the Tank would see many variations, each in keeping with Louis Cartier’s taste for clean lines and perfect symmetry. Each variant — from the original Tank to the Tank Louis to the Cintrée with its flirtatious, curvaceous lines — has its passionate devotees. Rudolph Valentino, that sensual star of the silver screen, insisted on wearing his Tank onscreen in The Son of the Sheik, and Clark Gable, Andy Warhol, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis were among those who sported a one throughout the years.
Other model lines, including the Santos (based upon the original model crafted for Alberto Santos-Dumont) and the Pasha, have developed devoted followers. Indeed, the maison is unique as one of the few jewelry brands to elicit as much passion from collectors as dedicated watch companies.
