To create timelessly elegant pieces that reflect Cartier's style, the Maison draws on all its expertise.


Cartier is one of the few Maisons in the world to bring together all the crafts involved in the creation of exceptional pieces in its Jewelry Workshops, from the initial sketch to the finished piece. These craftspeople are the guarantors of a signature technique, which combines practices handed down over several millennia with the most advanced technologies, the result of a constant pursuit of innovation.


The Cartier Manufacture is one of the few watchmaking Manufactures capable of designing, manufacturing and maintaining its watches and movements, whether they are simple or complication movements, historical or modern models.

175 crafts are represented, creating a rare balance between pioneering technology and traditional techniques. It’s a unique location that guarantees the longevity of Cartier watches by mastering every stage of production.


Cartier approaches leather goods with the eye and precision of a jeweler. Quality materials, precise movements, accurate designs: from the cutting to the preparation of the materials and the assembly of the leather goods, these Cartier creations require the utmost care. Clasps and chains use techniques borrowed from the jewelry workshops. Just like with their jewels, they infuse the creations with Cartier's signature soul and precision.


Mathilde Laurent, Cartier perfumer since 2005, designs perfumes for Cartier that are like invisible jewelry pieces. Indeed, her remarkable mastery of the art of perfumery and its history allows her to explore the wealth of stylistic territories that Cartier occupies.
Part of what makes her unique is that she draws her inspiration from a variety of sources, and makes a conscious decision to use natural ingredients, as well as synthetic molecules in her compositions when necessary. Through her creations, Mathilde Laurent gives rise to new sensations, creating real olfactory surprises.
