Art of time

Cartier Time Art, art directed by Tokujin Yoshioka, celebrates the technological innovation and beauty of Cartier timepieces.

Cartier Time Art is an exhibition celebrating the innovative technology and aesthetics of Cartier timepieces.

Taking place in Zurich, Switzerland, until 6 November 2011, the exhibition was art directed by Tokujin Yoshioka.

Showcasing more than 150 pieces that are part of a historical collection, Cartier Time Art will look at timepiece designs from as far back as 1874, with a chatelaine-watch in yellow gold, pink fold, enamel and pearls, and introducing 12 movements and 17 Fine Watchmaking timepieces, including ID One concept watch in niobium-titanium, featuring an ADLC coating and carbon crystal.

The daring spirit that embodies the Cartier brand is highlighted throughout the exhibition. Yoshioka merges two essential components, that of history and the avant-garde ideas for the future. Also in the exhibition space, 3D films depicting the mechanisms of the watch can be seen.
