CARTIER TIME ART
August 26 - November 6, 2011
Between August 26 and November 6, 2011, the Museum Bellerive presented “Cartier Time Art”, an exceptional exhibition taking visitors on a journey to the heart of Cartier watchmaking.
“Cartier Time Art” united the largest number of Cartier timepieces ever put on display, from its origins through to the present day. The unique journey offered by the exhibition began in 1874 with a chatelaine-watch in yellow gold, pink gold, enamel and pearls, and ended in the present day with the Cartier ID One watch in niobium-titanium, ADLC and carbon crystal. Throughout this journey through time, a clear theme emerged: that of the daring spirit which drove all Cartier employees' passion, from its craftsmen to its designers, and which the Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka captured in the exhibition’s scenography.
