For the very first time ever, Cartier held a watchmaking occasion at The Chedi Muscat on Tuesday. Speaking in the course of the occasion, Guillaume Alix, regional managing director at Cartier for the Middle East, India and Africa, mentioned, “It is an honour and a privilege to meet the Maison’s clients and press in Oman on Tuesday as there is a very special relationship between Cartier and Oman.”
Alix added, “In 1912, Jacques Cartier sailed to the warm shores of the Arabian Gulf drawn by the marvels of the region and to source the world’s most precious pearls. Oman holds a unique position as gateway to the Gulf and, as such, is the first of the Gulf lands to welcome sea travellers to the region. Jacques Cartier returned not only with pearls but also with friendships and a great source of inspiration, which continues to nurture the style of the Cartier Maison today.” He added that the relation with Khimjis goes down to numerous years.
“The alluring Panthere motif, with its feline grace has been one of the most beloved icons. Inspired by Jeanne Touissant, a personality who dramatically impacted the design of the creations and envisioned a new expression of feminity.”
Anil Khimji, director, Khimji Ramdas expressed his delight on such an occasion. “We share with you this remarkable treasure of Cartier watches, showcasing timeless authenticity and luxury.” Cartier has usually placed craftsmanship and creativity at the extremely hearts of the creations. From Santos to Panthere, the Maison’s creativity and innovation have usually been boundless. The Santos de Cartier watch that has been maintained all through the successive decades because its creation in 1904 was also presented at the occasion. The new Santos de Cartier watch stays accurate to its original philosophy by reflecting the revolutionary, ever-altering spirit of its personal age.
