Cartier was founded in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier. In 1904 they produced the first men's wristwatch "Santos". The Baignoire and Tortue models were introduced in 1912 and the Tank followed in 1917 - all still in production today! Cartier has a long history of serving royalty - most famously, for the "Panthére" brooch created for Wallis Simpson
