Must, Trinity, Coliseum: 3 ranges in 1?

Description

The Cartier "Colisée" presents a bold allure compared to classics Cartier codes, with keeping with La Maison's excellence in designing shape watches. The round case contrasting the horizontal integrated lugs makes the Colisée a beautiful alternative to the more classic and simple models of the House. The Colisée has been declined in the classic range (in solid gold), and here in Must.

The Trinity range is a classic from Cartier: 3 different gold colours for the 3 cardinal values. Pink gold for love, yellow gold for loyalty and finally white gold which symbolizes friendship. These codes are repeated here on the dial, and that is what makes it so original!

At last, but certainly not last, the folding clasp! Rarely seen in Must pieces, this results in unrivaled comfort when worn, and an unbroken balance for the strap.

How to wear it

Françoise particularly likes the geometric boldness of the Colisée: perfect round case but horizontal lugs that one would believe simply posed on the watch. Its contained size is sober, but the design makes the watch quite daring. Put it on a black strap to calm it down or a more pronounced one to highlight it.

Why did Françoise choose it ?

Françoise is very fond of the Colisée range, which is nevertheless shunned by many collectors. The upside of this injustice in Françoise's eyes is that it creates a Cartier that you don't see on everyone's wrists!

When in addition we add a Trinity dial to a Colisée, how could Françoise resist! Indeed, she loves this range, as much for its symbol and its importance at Cartier as for the play of color and reflections that the 3 golds offer!

History

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

This creative line not only allowed the Maison Cartier to expand its offer but also to offer a more accessible and offbeat range. The goal was clear : bringing Cartier to younger customers with smaller prices, while maintaining La Maison's codes.

After lighters, pens and even leather goods, it was the turn of the Must watch to make its appearance in 1976/77. The gold-plated Tank was the first to make its debut with the mention "Must de Cartier" and the two "C"s on the dial. Although the first models were made with a manual movement, quartz quickly took hold on these everyday and easy-to-wear watches.

Unlike yellow gold, classic Cartier watches, the Must line offer a very wide variety of cases and dials. Sometimes colorful, sometimes embellished with geometric patterns, these designs give a second life to classic models.
