Master Crafts Of Filigree Craftsmanship Ronde Louis Cartier Watch

Born in Cartier’s new master crafts workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the RondeLouis Cartier filigree watch reinterprets the long history of filigree craftsmanship through vivid imagery and precious ornate design. Like the metal bead craftsmanship of 2013, this creative and heritage work bears witness to Cartier’s determination to regain and retain lost craftsmanship and technology.

  The ancient gold and silver craftsmanship originated in Egypt in ancient times. It was invented by the Sumerians in 3000 BC, then developed and expanded in India, Tibet, Greece, and Iran, and finally reached its peak in Portugal.

  Gold and silver wire craftsmanship is a kind of goldsmith craftsmanship. By kneading and fixing gold or silver wire, a decorative pattern with a hollow grille effect is created, which is as transparent as lace.

  For Cartier, the challenge is not only to apply this handicraft to the square inch space of the watch, but also to sublimate it to a higher artistic level by using precious jewelry materials such as gold, platinum and diamonds.

  The craftsmen of the Cartier Master Crafts Workshop need to use special tools to create gold or platinum filaments. The filaments are twisted, rolled and entangled, cut into small loops, and then used the gold and silver wire craftsmanship to form a pattern. All elements are fixed by the sides instead of the bottom.

  A pair of cheetahs on the dial. The black-painted fur is woven from diamond-set gold and platinum filaments. It takes more than a month to create such a filigree watch.

  Noble and solemn, two cheetahs with intersected eyes dotted with tailor-made emerald eyes. They look at each other gently under the starry night sky and contrast with the diamond-paved bezel.

This ingenious masterpiece of art combines many types of craftsmanship, from gem setting to filigree, from jewelry to watchmaking, from carving to lacquer. Thousands of procedures are only to achieve Cartier’s iconic cheetah image, a rare and precious masterpiece, balanced, elegant and delicate, as delicate and transparent as lace.
