ADVENT CALENDAR 2016: December 10 – The Cartier Drive de Cartier

On the 10th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… the new Cartier model that caught a lot of people’s attention this year in watches. The Drive manages to be both masculine and refined, deviating from the Cartier single shape theory that usually has you choose between square (Santos), round (Ballon Bleu) and tonneau (Roadster and Tortue), to name a few. It’s very faintly retro, too, but combines a cut-through cushion case with the usual impeccable Cartier finishing on the dial.

Who should you buy this for? The extraordinary gentleman in your life, or for yourself if you’re in the market for a dress watch par excellence.

What’s the damage? Under 9k
