Plunging back into legend

Description

How can you talk about Cartier watches without thinking of the BaignoireWith elegance, sensuality, and delicacy, the Cartier Baignoire evokes womanhood and the Cartier identity in one. It also illustrates the Maison’s technical capabilities in creating a movement that fits seamlessly into an oval case. The round and voluptuous case surely makes the Baignoire the most feminine watch ever designed by Cartier. Many powerful or iconic women made it their signature watch. 

What makes this particular example so rare is its integrated bracelet called "Casque d'or" (french for "golden helmet"). Another bracelet design as original as it is beautiful from La Maison! Its curves recall those of the case and give life to the watch. The combination of slightly different links testifies to a work of drawing and craftsmanship of a high quality!

How to wear it?

Obviously, we wouldn't recommend doing sport with such a precious watch! Otherwise, we can consider that this watch is for everyday wear! The quartz movement makes it practical and precise and requires no maintenance. Be careful, however with the gold bracelet that could attract unwanted attention. Even if the watch and the bracelet are quite discreet, it still looks like an precious piece of jewelery. 

Why did Françoise choose it ?

Françoise loves classic Baignoire on leather straps, so how could she resist this one, even more luxurious, even more elaborate, even more "Cartier"?! Françoise likes to wear a Baignoire all the more because she knows that this watch has been chosen by many iconic women before her.

History

From Catherine Deneuve to Jeanne Moreau via Romy Schneider, the Cartier Baignoire continues to charm.

Although Louis Cartier had already introduced a design of an elongated watch in the early 1900s, the iconic model we know today was born in 1958 in Cartier’s Parisian workshops. A watch with feminine and sensual lines, an innovative and creative style. A few years later, the Baignoire Allongée appeared in London studios.

While the case formed of gold gadroons has retained its rounded design, it has nevertheless offered a few variations over the years, as has the dial, sometimes embellished with Roman numerals, sometimes with Arabic numerals. An intrinsically elegant watch that goes through the years without losing its aura.
