Cartier Timepiece Exhibition
The Museum Bellerive in Zurich, Switzerland is to host a new exhibition celebrating the timepieces created by famed French watchmaker and jeweller, Cartier. Directed by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka, the Cartier Time Art exhibition includes 158 pieces from the company’s extensive archive.
The installation charts the history and style of Cartier, starting with pieces dating back to 1874, and concluding with the company’s future design vision. Pieces include the i-D-one, a contemporary concept watch which is yet to be commercially produced, featuring automatic winding, 18-carat-gold detailing, and a sapphire crystal face. As well as Cartier’s watches and clocks, the exhibition also features 3D films, which expand on the technological and structural progression of the company.
Cartier Time Art runs from 26 August to 6 November 2011 at the Museum Bellerive in Zurich, before touring internationally.
