You can count on Cartier to unveil technical and artistic marvels every year, and the maison didn’t disappoint at Watches and Wonders 2022. Highlights included a mysterious watch fitted with a movement that doubles as its own oscillating weight, as well as a timepiece with a flexible surface that redefines the very idea of tactility in a wristwatch. This is creativity at its most sublime, given form with the right technical expertise, and thoroughly Cartier in spirit. Here, the brand’s director of image, style and patrimony, Pierre Rainero, shares his perspectives on some of these pieces­—and more.

One of Cartier’s most impressive creations this year is the Coussin de Cartier, which has a flexible, deformable surface. What led to the development of this timepiece?

I think the culture at Cartier was a necessary condition for this timepiece to be developed. Our technical and creative teams don’t work separately. Instead, we know in advance which direction we want to look towards for innovation. In this case, the watch embodies our view on jewellery creation, which is to work with tough, precious materials such as diamonds and platinum, yet give them life by achieving fluidity and movement with them. And indeed, this is what you see in the Coussin de Cartier.
