Our take

Cartier launched the Must watch line in 1976 to attract young people with more modern designs and lower prices. Well, we're attracted, so that worked!
The Must 21 is almost a UFO in Cartier line: this big bezel, the horns on the strap etc. That's what we love about Cartier: they always find a way to surprise us with their designs.

Must 21: a boost in the Must range


The Cartier Must 21 (ref. 1330), steel case and folding clasp, presents a new, confident look. Original and sporty with its dial combining steel and gold details, it can be an alternative to the more classic and simple gold models. With its rounded lines, it embodies the elegance and creativity of the House.

How to wear it

While retaining the elegance inherent to the House of Cartier, this Must 21 will be the sporty touch of your outfit. Also for this reason, this model can easily match what you are wearing, whatever outfit you choose. Perfect at work or on holidays! On a black or colored strap like this deep blue, this Must will be the perfect ally!

Why did Françoise choose it?

Whether monochrome or decorated with geometric patterns, with or without indexes, small or large, you will always find a Must watch that matches your personality. This is why we offer models with different designs, more or less sporty. Since its case is not made of precious metal, the Must offers a nice alternative to gold models. Boldness and elegance in one model.


The “Must de Cartier” collection was launched in 1973 by Robert Hocq and Alain-Dominique Perrin, appointed general director of this new entity.

This creative line not only allowed Maison Cartier to expand its offering but also to offer a more accessible and offbeat range, thus democratizing the luxury sector while retaining its codes.

After lighters, pens and even leather goods, it was the turn of the Must watch to appear in 1976/77. The vermeille Tank is the first to make its debut with the words “Must de Cartier” and the two “C”s on the dial. Although the first models were made with a manual movement, quartz quickly became established on these everyday, easy-to-wear watches. The Must 21 was launched in 1986.

Unlike Cartier watches in yellow gold, those in the Must line, in silver, vermeil or steel, offer a very wide variety of cases and dials. Sometimes colorful, sometimes embellished with geometric patterns, these designs give a new lease of life to classic models.
