Cartier’s Mille Et Une Heures collection of timepieces
Classic and timeless – the legendary French jewellers and watchmakers Cartier’s new collection, Mille Et Une Heures, is evermore spectacular and features 16 exquisite timepieces. Mille et une heures attempts to capture the essence of ancient India – replete with all its rich cultural and artistic hues. The underlying theme of this enchanting collection can be traced back to Cartier’s fascination with Asian and Arabic motifs, the most endearing of them being ‘Tutti Fruiti’ (Fruit Tips).
Incredible animal forms – peacock shapes, with feathers paved in diamonds – lend a distinctively oriental and mystical allure to the pieces. Some 500-1500 hours of hawk-eyed detailing and toil went into putting together this dazzling and colorful collection.
