Overwhelmingly, the response to Cartier Baignoire watches has been a positive one, with experienced watch collectors praising the company for their renewal of a classic tradition in luxury timepieces. Throught-provoking and slightly extravagant in its design, this series of watches has proven to be an almost unheralded answer to the newer and somewhat less imaginative designs that lesser manufacturers of watches have come up with in recent years. The central theme to the Cartier Baignoire series of watches is the flat, minimalist dial, featuring Roman numerals which have been carefully inlaid in a refracted way to match the out-of-round shape of each watch. These watches are available with or without diamonds and feature 18-karat rose gold, white gold or yellow gold and quality leather straps.
There's not much room for comparison when it come to the diamond-studded watches that make up a significant portion of this elegant collection of Cartier luxury watches. The timepieces themselves represent a classic style not often seen anymore, and the diamond inlays add something extra to these excellent examples of timeless artistry. Each watch comes with the option of a mechanical or quartz movement, depending on your preference. With many traditional watches disappearing from the market in favor of more trendy and versatile modes of timekeeping, the watches in this collection represent more than plain marketing gimmicks or watches which are made to be thrown away. The more imaginative connoisseur will appreciate the miniature second hands which make up a large portion of the faces of certain watches in this collection, which stand out in their notable obscurity. Cartier timepieces are known throughout the world as prime examples of luxury watches of outstanding craftsmanship.
