What do Catherine Deneuve, Romy Schneider and Jeanne Moreau have in common? Apart from their beauty, all three fell for the sensual curves of the Baignoire Watch. Brought into being by Louis Cartier in 1912, the oval form continued to evolve until the 1950s, to become the shape we know today. The symbol of French elegance, the Baignoire watch, launched in 1958, returns centre-stage this year in a yellow gold version which has been completely reworked by Cartier's design studio. A narrower strap, redesigned Roman numerals on a silvered sandblasted dial, a seamlessly integrated caseback, water-resistance to 30 metres... More contemporary than ever, this cult watch stamps its dazzling presence on the wrist.
