Avant Garde Cartier Captive Ladies Watch

Famous French luxury brand Cartier has enriched its Haute Joaillerie watch collection with the Cartier Captive Ladies Watch, which is extremely exclusive. I have never expected such an edgy timepiece from this brand. But I do like it. It even takes my breath away at first sight with something really special.

Not like other watches by this brand, the silver dial, protected by a sapphire crystal, does not focus on the time display. The small watch face, like a seconds subsidiary dial, is located on traditional 6 o'clock position with tiny blued hands. The diamond-set hour markers that form an sunburst pattern become the real leading role of the dial. Also impressive is the upper lug that occupies the most significant position at the top. And based on its profound strength in watch-making, Cartier has managed to hold things together and make the face of the watch deserves the name "Captive".

The case, sized at 35mm, is crafted from 18k white gold and receives fine rhodium plated finish. The bezel is set with lots diamonds that continue onto the upper lug as well. Beating inside the watch is a Swiss quartz movement.And the watch is completed by a matching white gold bracelet or an elegant canvas gray strap.

Overall, the watch feels more like a piece of art work than a simple ladies' watch. If you can afford the expensive price tag that Cartier high jewelry watches are famous for, this watch should be a great solution for the most special lady in your life. I just wonder who will be the lucky owner?
