Louis Cartier was a famous watchmaker and business man working the trade in France. He worked alongside his father and brothers to ensure the Cartier name was the most well-known name in the industry. In 1868, Cartier worked in the fashion area of France where he fell in love with timepeices. Soon, he became passionate for creating his own line.
