The house of Carter is perhaps the most well known and iconic jeweler in the entire world.  Since their founding in 1847, the maison has been the jeweler to royalty.  Cartier holds royal warrants from Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, Russia and more.  Cartier also has a large history in watchmaking.  Cartier is credited with creating the first men's wristwatch for the aviator Albert Santos-Dumont in 1904.  This watch was flat, square, and wrist mounted, rather than the round, unstable pocket watches of the time.  Their next homerun was the Tank watch, whose design inspiration was literally an overhead view of a tank!
