“Jeweller of Kings, King of Jewellers” is the title bestowed upon Cartier by King Edward VII. Since being founded in Paris, France in 1847, Cartier jewelry and watches have become highly coveted by royalty, Hollywood’s elite, and high-society alike.
Cartier watches have a unique claim to fame within the world of wristwatches. They are credited with creating the first mass-produced men’s “wrist-worn” watch. What became known as the “Santos” was specifically commissioned by Louis Cartier’s good friend, Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont around 1904. Alberto found using a standard pocket watch while flying impractical and unreliable. Cartier’s solution was a flat design wristwatch with a unique square-shaped bezel. The watch also featured another first-of-its-kind design with a folding “deployment” buckle. By 1911 the “Santos-Dumont” was put into mass production and quickly became a must-have staple for early 20th century men. Since its launch of the Santos wristwatch, Cartier has gone on to produce many classic, well-known, desirable timepieces.

Like most other luxury watch brands, there are numerous factors that determine your Cartier watch’s value on the secondary market. Generally, a pre-owned watch’s value is independent of its original or current MSRP.
The number one factor that determines your Cartier watch’s value is the current market demand for the timepiece. Current trends and preferences such as yellow gold versus white gold or stainless steel, sports models versus dress models, etc. all dictate demand. For example, a petite vintage Cartier Tank in yellow gold on a leather strap is in far less demand today compared to a newer all-steel Cartier Roadster.
