Description

From their forms to their movements, Cartier watches are unique. They are an enduring combination of the unexpected and the classical.

This book chronicles Cartier’s constant quest for excellence in the manufacture of complicated watches. Whether historic pieces in the Cartier Collection or contemporary fine watch-making creations, Cartier interprets complications in its own inimitable way, and always with a sense of design.

The author and expert Jack Forster shares the spirit that motivates each craftsman, engineer and artist to create the most striking complicated watches, while Laziz Hamani’s photographs capture these objects of exceptional technical sophistication.

Cartier Time Art is also the catalogue of an international touring exhibition curated by the Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka, which opens in the Museum Bellerive in Zurich (Switzerland).
