Few other jewellers demand the same respect as fake Cartier. The French jeweller and watchmaker has maintained a presence in the upper echelons of luxury ever since its founding by Louis-François Cartier in Paris, 1847. Proof of its premium nature can be found in the number of royal warrants it holds with various royalty around the world, which date back to 1904 following the 1902 coronation of King Edward VII of Great Britain.
It was Louis-François’ grandchildren – Louis, Pierre and Jacques – who really put the high-end fake Cartier brand on the map, thanks to their ingenious designs and savvy marketing tactics. One such design for a wristwatch that has remained iconic ever since came in 1904, when Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont approached Louis Cartier to tell him of his troubles reading his watch while flying. Louis went to the drawing board and designed the Santos watch, with square bezel and flat design. The rest, as they say, is history.
