In Jeddah’s Al Khayyat Center, Cartier has unveiled a new pop-up exhibition presenting some of the Maison’s most iconic and timeless watch and jewellery designs all together for the first time in Jeddah. This unique and memorable experience is in celebration of Cartier’s culture of design, and part of the Maison’s strong commitment to connecting with its community within the Kingdom by showcasing its savoir-faire singularity locally.
The presentation is an extraordinary opportunity to experience some of Cartier’s most fascinating pieces, embodying the Maison’s spirit of boldness, attention to detail, and expert craftsmanship. Cartier has made iconic shapes its signature – with a diversity ranging from square, curved, rectangular or oval – becoming signatures of unrivalled originality in the design of watchmaking. The experience will allow visitors to discover the Maison’s four distinct jewellery design principles: purity, the accuracy of the shape, the precision of proportions, and precious details.
The heirloom watches on display include the Tank, first designed in 1917 by Louis Cartier; the Ballon Bleu de Cartier, which gives new meaning to round design; the Santos de Cartier, created in 1904; and the Panthère de Cartier, which creates a work of art through clean lines.
The exceptional jewellery pieces include some of Cartier’s most recognisable and intelligent designs, including the radical Juste un Clou, which transforms the shape of a nail into a precisely-proportioned bracelet; the Trinity ring, made up of intertwined bands in three colours of gold; and the Love bracelet, an icon of clean lines and one of the Maison’s distinctive pieces.
