Timepieces are the perfect distillation of Cartier's craft: At once bona fide jewels, the ultimate expression of style, and miracles of detail and precision, they are at the heart of all that the legendary house represents. More than 450 pieces, including the complete collection of "mystery clocks" whose hands seem to float in midair, are presented here, representing more than 150 years of the finest horology. Each object is accompanied by its individual history and detailed technical specifications. Full-scale reproductions, including 12 gatefolds, are followed by an illustrated and comparative chronology, glossary of terms, and complete index.
