Drive de Cartier

If you’re a newbie to cushion-shaped watches—like most people are at the moment—then this newly dedicated number for men by Cartier is the go-to option. Behind that scintillating cushion-shaped case and snazzy dial with the house’s iconic roman numerals is a round case-back. In a way, it creates the illusion of being a common round watch when looked at from only one side—and it certainly feels like one on the wrist. Still, Cartier’s strongest suit is in the details. Take, for example, the exquisite contrasting guillochés between the central hands and the sub-dial for seconds below. They both take references from a car’s tachymeter and dashboard, but, thankfully, not as literal like many other brands do. No less special is the bolt-like crown topped with Cartier’s signature blue cabochon. It is, put simply, perfection in style.
