The key to classic design: introducing Cle de Cartier

Wrist candy

A coronet of diamonds surrounds the new Cle de Cartier timepieces

If that isn't enough to get your attention, we don't know what will. Cartier's new collection of five luxury watches - including three women's designs and two men's - really is the ultimate in wrist candy. The men's designs come sans diamonds, but the women's, in either 18 carat pink gold or white gold, are all sparkle, tempered by an elegant curved design.

Glittering diamonds aside, there's more to the Clé de Cartier collection than an exceptionally pretty face. The crown is inspired by the classic key shape (clé is the French word for key), set with a single sapphire that sits flush with the surrounding metal - a modern watchmaking feat. Made in Switzerland (where else?), the Clé de Cartier timepieces boast a dual-direction winding mechanism and specially conceived lever system as well as 42-hour power reserve. Find them at
