Cartier uses superb skills to create a flawless streamlined appearance, elegant and simple style, and a harmonious and unified beauty.

‘CLÉ’ in French means key, and the new crown looks exactly like a key. This new way of adjusting the time and date with this crown sets a precedent in watchmaking, reminiscent of the ancient tradition of using keys to wind timepieces. The crown is slender and simple, and is decorated with a sapphire. The setting process is different from the traditional method. The cleverly embedded gem is flush with the metal that covers it.
