In 1847, Cartier was founded by Louis-François Cartier.  Cartier become the favorite among celebrities and aristocrats, aptly named the “King of Jewellers.”  They introduced some of their most iconic models in the early 1900’s such as the Cartier Santos in 1904, The Cartier Tank in 1919, and The Cartier Tortue chronograph in 1928.  In later years, they introduced the Santos de Cartier, Pasha de Cartier, Cartier Tank Americaine, Cartier Tank Francaise, Cartier Roadster, Ballon Bleu de Cartier, Calibre de Cartier, and the Rotonde de Cartier Double Mystery Tourbillon.
