Cartier | Clash [Un]limited

The novelties unveiled at Watches and Wonders in Geneva

Not only mechanics but also beauty: this is the signature of Clash [Un]limited, a jewel watch that contrasts elegance with strength. Spheres, picots, clous carrés and mobility: the codes of the Clash de Cartier collection show themselves, intertwine, define a path and manifest themselves in the design of a precious watch.

Rounded corners and bevelled dials, plays of solids and voids, of round and square shapes: geometry is a constant in the style of the Maison. Cartier promotes a culture of design in which graphic rigor and movement, both that of the rotating spheres and that of the articulated hinges of the bracelet, delicate on the skin, are perfectly balanced. A desire to architecturally structure the creation and to add perspective: from the shape of the links to that of the small case whose sixteen-faceted glass accentuates the character.

Think of the sense of volume and the legacy of Jeanne Toussaint, who already in the 1930s dared to create contrasts between the preciousness and the industrial aesthetics of ball bearings. The Clash [Un]limited watch represents the link between yesterday and today, thanks also to the chromatic contrast that characterizes it and which brings out the geometric motifs. As? Alternating brushed and satin gold and combining yellow and pink gold with purple gold, a new color in shades of purple moiré, designed for Cartier. Purple which is found in the watch both in the highlight of the carré and in the spheres of the bracelet

Variations on the theme: made in a limited series, the Clash [Un]limited watch shows its profiled silhouette in yellow gold, rose gold and white gold with pavé diamonds. It is also the protagonist of exceptional creations whose stones enhance the design in black and white with onyx, black spinels, obsidian and diamonds or in color, with coral, black spinels, chrysoprase, tsavorites and diamonds. Conceived by the Cartier watchmaking ateliers, Clash [Un]limited is part of the repertoire of the Maison’s creative collections of jewel watches.
