If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s: get the right timepiece and you’ll see returns far beyond your initial investment.
And when it comes to haute horology, there are only a few houses as legendary as Cartier—they’ve been making iconic watches since 1904, when Louis Cartier designed one of the first-ever aviation watches.
And now they’ve got another instant icon on their hands: the new Calibre Chronograph.
It’s a style that will catch the attention of watch aficionados and gearheads alike. (For those keeping score at home, “calibre” is the official designation for watch movements totally unique to a watch brand.) But the real functionality is that this Cartier is just as slick as its forefather—down to the telltale sapphire adorning the crown—but it’s a sport watch at heart. In other words, you’ve got a timepiece that’ll look just as at-home under a field jacket as it will under your summer-weight suit. It comes in a handful of different finishes that you can get a better look at after the jump, plus we’re deeming our three favorites instant Must-Haves (to join the rest of the crew in our left-most column).
