So besides the fact that an in-house movement was becoming more and more significant, Cartier Watches Price In Uae Replica realised quite well that to be really reliable and successful in the sphere of high-end watches they needed to create not just their own calibers, but also as many parts as you can, such as the case, springs, rotors, dials, hands, glass etc.Cartier built, during the Collection Privée period, a big — over 30.000 square meters — manufacture at La Chaux-de-Fonds (see our coverage) and started to use a selected group of watchmakers to a follow up project to be launched in 2008, all led by Carole Forestier-Kasapi, the genius watchmaker that was hired in 2005 and had worked at Audemars Piguet (Renaud & Papi) and van Cleef & Arpels. This very contemporary and luxury manufacture is now with the Rolex manufacture, the largest in Switzerland!The very first outcome of Cartier’s high-end watchmaking was presented in November 2007. Regrettably, the opinion was set in a 47mm oversize Ballon Bleu instance, following the huge watch trend.Since the launch of that Flying Tourbillon, Cartier did not rest on their laurels. While other leading brands such as Audemars Piguet were taking it quietly and satisfying the watch fanatics with ‘Offshore’ after ‘Offshore’, year in, year out, Cartier made over-hours and invented new substances, new calibers and surprised the press every January in the SIHH with actual novelties. Back in 2009, and again in 2012, Cartier even encouraged over a hundred journalists from all over the globe and flew them in to La Chaux-de-Fonds, to show the ID-ONE and ID-TWO watch in their manufacture. Two prototype watches which would not reach the current market, but were created for research and — naturally — to demonstrate the media just how far ahead Cartier was in fine watchmaking.
For as long as we can remember, Sofia Coppola has stood out as an icon of style, taste and contemporary elegance. As a determined artist whose work transcends trends, she gives sensitive expression to what femininity is today.
While men do sometimes play roles central to the narrative of herfilms (Stephen Dorff in Somewhere or Bill Murray in Lost in Translation), her leading characters are almost exclusively women. The female perspective is an element particularly relevant to Sofia, a point of view she conveys, time and again, so aptly on screen. With an abundance of talent and a distinctive artistic vision, she knows, better than anyone, how to reinvent the past with a rigorously contemporary touch. Her vision of the 80s and of what it means to be a Panthère woman is the perfect match for this collection, which was born in 1983.
« I’ve always loved Cartier, the archives, the history and the design which is very unique. I am a fan, said Sofia Coppola. When Cartier told me that they wanted to make a film for the relaunch of the Panthère de Cartier watch, I first thought: who is a Panthère woman? What would her environment be? I love the Panthère watch, so I was happy to make a film which captured the chic and the glamour of what it says to me.
The Panthère watch is unique because it is a piece of jewelry that you can wear in the day as a glamour look as well as in the evening. When the Panthère watch came out in 1983, there were so many great movies, and I love the stars of that time. I remember the glamourous kind of women who wore a Panthère watch. It was just a stylish time to remember and to propose a modern interpretation of it. The Panthère woman is elegant, sophisticated, chic and glamourous, still sexy and fun. I think she is a European woman who travels, so we set the story in that way. We just shot a couple of days in LA, in some great locations as Union Station downtown, the Georgio’s night club, a hotel in Hollywood and the “Fox Residence ».
