Cartier will host a traveling exhibition of its timepieces titled, “Cartier Time Art.” The Parisian luxury jewelry and watch brand will showcase more than 100 items from its historical collection and 20 contemporary fine watches, making it the largest collection of Cartier timepieces ever to be seen in public. Its first stop will be the Museum Bellerive in Zurich, Switzerland, August 26 till November 6.
The exhibition traces Cartier's technical and aesthetic aspects of complicated watches from a 1911 Santos wristwatch, a 1929 Tortue single pushpiece chronograph created in 1929, to the large "Billiken" mystery clock (1923). The collection also will include chatelaine-watches, wristwatches, travel clocks.
