Cartier Vendôme

  • Free worldwide delivery

Place Vendôme is a square in the first arrondissement of Paris that attracts high society, fashion designers and celebrities worldwide. It stands for Parisian elegance and is the home for Cartier's flagship store. The Cartier Vendome covers everything that Place Vendôme stands for. It has a luxurious and very elegant appearance. The 18k yellow-gold case measures 33 mm and houses a manually wound movement. We think it's very cool that the case doesn't have extended lugs but a cutout in which the strap is fitted to the case, which contributes to the circular design of the case. It has a white dial with a black-painted Roman index, which is displayed in a very cool way. The watch is fitted to a pink, alligator-leather strap with an 18k yellow-gold Cartier buckle.


Cartier Louis-François Cartier took over his master’s jewellery workshop in 1847. Over the years, his sons and grandsons inherited the family business and expanded the brand by opening shops in New York and London. King Edward VII of the United Kingdom granted Cartier a prestigious royal warrant in 1904, calling the brand “the jeweler of kings and the king of jewellers.” Such was the renown of Cartier, that royal warrants soon rolled in from all over the world (among which, Belgium, Egypt, Greece, Siam, Spain, Portugal, and Russia). While Cartier is known primarily for its jewellery, it also has a storied history in watchmaking. Cartier’s first foray in watchmaking came in 1888, offering exclusively ladies models. In 1904, Louis Cartier gave his friend and Brazilian aviation pioneer Santos Dumont to wear during his flights. Until then, wrist watches were worn exclusively by women and men opted for the traditional pocket watch. The ‘Santos-Dumont’ was not only the first wristwatch geared towards men but also the first pilot’s watch!
