Our take

If Cartier is Paris, this watch is La Place Vendôme.
Located in the heart of Paris, Vendôme is the historical beehive for jewelers and watchmakers.
This watch is an obvious wink to Cartier's story: located in the severe place Vendome, the Maison always managed to mix audacity and classicism. The round case is classic, but the horizontal lugs are audacious.
We love the Must reinterpretation for two main reasons: its socket is more accessible than the classic version, and overall, the deep brown dial!

Vendôme: Rendez-vous at the Heart of Creation

Description

The Vendôme by Cartier? As elegant and timeless as the Place itself! The very round case, almost uninterrupted, recalls the simplest watch form. The bracelet, attached to the case by thin horizontal lugs, barely seems to hold the watch. And of course, a religious respect for Cartier codes: a minute scale in railroad style, blued hands and a winding crown adorned with a sapphire cabochon. Absolute finesse!

Its Must version in gold plating offers this watch two qualities: of course, a more affordable budget than its big sister in solid gold, but above all, to break the classicism of Cartier dials with these superb brown hues.

How to wear it

This Cartier Vendôme is perfect in all circumstances. Neither too elegant nor too casual, it is particularly suitable for daily life, perfect for work or evening wear. Thanks to the originality of its brown dial, it is a beautiful alternative to the classic Vendôme that only comes with a white dial.

Why did Françoise choose her?

Just like the Place of the same name, the Cartier Vendôme evokes luxury and subtlety. A discreet model with fine lines. That's why Françoise trust it completely. The round dial is not very common at Cartier, known for its "shaped" watches.

This version with a brown dial is quite rare and offers a beautiful contrast with the gold color, both of the case and of the indexes. In addition, its 30mm diameter makes it a unisex model.

History

As early as 1934, Louis Cartier patented a new way of attaching leather straps: on either side, a horizontal bar was inserted into a sort of central loop attached to the case.

The Cartier Vendôme was introduced around 1973 as a tribute to the eponymous Parisian square, a meeting place for jewellers and watchmakers. The two lugs evoke the two streets leading to Place Vendôme: rue de la Paix and rue de Castiglione.

In the same years, Cartier launched its Must range to bring more attractive prices for the house's iconic designs.
