Overview

Featuring 290 color images, many of them full-page, this lavish volume presents Cartier's most famous and complicated watches in a new never-before-published collection.  From their forms to their movements, Cartier watches are unique. They are an enduring combination of the unexpected and the classical. In the world of timepieces, the Cartier name inevitably evokes a glamorous range of legendary, universally admired watches: the Santos, the Tortue, the Tank, the Baignoire, the Pasha de Cartier, the Panthère de Cartier, and others.
This book chronicles Cartier's constant quest for excellence in the manufacture of complicated watches. From a Tortue single push-piece chronograph, created in 1929 to a contemporary Santos 100 skeleton watch, Cartier interprets complications in its own inimitable way, always with a sense of design.
Laziz Hamani's photographs capture these objects of exceptional artistry while author and expert Jack Forster shares the spirit that motivates each craftsman, engineer, and artist to create the most stunning complicated watches.
Cartier Time Art will also be the catalog of an international touring exhibition curated by the Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka, which will premiere at Bellerive Museum in Zurich, Switzerland from August to November 2011.
