Cartier views creating eyewear as a craft in its own right that requires the use of many traditional skills and expertise. In 1983, with the launch of its first Must and Vendôme models, Cartier moved to Joinville-le-Pont, near Paris. Thirty years
later, the Cartier Eyewear Manufacture moved to nearby Sucy-en-Brie in the Val de Marne, where it took up residence in an ultra-modern building dedicated to creation, innovation and manufacturing. This solidified Cartier’s position as one of the few Maisons with its own Manufacture, guaranteeing all creations are in line with Cartier’s high standards.
The Manufacture seeks to bring together all aspects of Cartier eyewear, a laboratory to test creativity and technical innovations.
