Cartier. Diamonds have their 3 "Cs"; Cartier watches have their 3 "Ps": perfection, precision, prestige. Today, Cartier International is a gigantic multinational organization known throughout the world of fashion for its elegant watches, as well as its beautiful line of jewelry and luxury products; however, the story all began with Louis Cartier (1875-1942), the French businessman who became famous worldwide for his elegant and extravagant designs in watches. This documentary offers a fascinating look at the evolution of the company, which dates back to 1874. Here we see the company's success relied not only on creating a diversity of prestigious products, but also in developing a concept which opened the market formerly reserved for a small elite. Louis' passion for pocket watches helped popular the timepiece around the world; then his son, Alfred, and grandsons, Pierre, Jacque and Louis, worked together in the family business to turn Cartier into a brand name. 02/09DE JSCA 30 min.
