Heritage
Cartier is often cited as the true pioneer in modern watch making. Introduced from the early 19th century onwards, Cartier’s history is rich in different forms and styles. The Swiss company forayed into jewellery watches that could be worn as broaches and chatelaines, pocket watches and soon made their mark in luxury wrist watches, which Louis Cartier saw as the future of the Fine Watchmaking. All the designs that have been created since then have been a reflection of this passion; modern yet timeless. Baignoire was introduced as one of the later collections of Louis Cartier but was based on a model in 1906, which highlighted Cartier’s prowess in crafting watchmaking forms. These oval shaped time pieces have become an iconic collection.

Design
An elegant ellipse uniquely forged in a single line, the “Baignoire” watch is the essence of Cartier style. The crowns that are always so intricately crafted in Cartier watches form an integral part of the look of this model. It contains a faceted 18 carat pink gold crown set with a faceted sapphire. Portraying timeless style, the silvered flinque dial is set with black Roman numerals as hour-markers. The hands are crafted with finesse from blued steel and given the shape of swords. A scratch proof sapphire crystal is affixed over the dial. The straps are made from shiny dark brown alligator skin-strap with 18 carat pink gold ardillon buckle.

Features
The Baignoire watch model W8000002 is a quite a large wrist watch that houses the 430 MC Cartier Calibre with the in house mechanical movement and manual winding. This particular model is encased in an 18 carat pink gold case dimensioned at 44 mm in diameter, 34.07 mm in width and 10.05 mm in thickness, thus giving it a sleek but large outlook. The case is water resistant to the depth of 30 meters of 100 feet.

 

History
A brand known for crafting high quality luxury watches, Cartier goes a step further to ensure the satisfaction of female watch connoisseurs with its Baignoire collection for women. Launched in 1912 with the Tortue, this collection upholds the idea behind its introduction even today, more than a hundred years later, with its elegant and graceful design fit for royalty. This line draws inspiration from a watch gifted to Grand Duchess Pavlovna of Russia by Louis Cartier himself, and glorifies feminine curves and beauty by incorporating them in its own structure.


Design
The Baignoire collection by Cartier comes with elliptical dials forged in a single line, reminiscent of a woman’s softly curving features, as well as the Baignoire bathtub.  The dial itself is white to emit a subdued and refined radiance. The fixed bezel is adorned with diamonds in certain models for an added aura of brilliance. The time markers on the dial are in bold Roman numerals, which amplify the elegance and classical beauty of this collection.  The watches are available in varying sizes of mini, small or large, to complement and adorn the wrist of any lady. The cases are constructed from 18K white or pink gold, to provide watches that portray ethereal and long lasting beauty. The options offered for the strap apart from matching case materials, also include leather and fabric in varying colours, with 18K gold signed buckles for easy adjustment and comfortable use. Aesthetic artistry finds a representative in Cartier’s Baignoire collection, which epitomizes the true aspects of womanhood since time immemorial.


Associations
The Baignoire has had numerous admirers pan history, including Charlie Chaplin. He gifted a watch from this particular collection to his wife in the 1950s, who is reported to have admired immensely.
