A showcase for Cartier's watchmaking craftsmanship
In La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, Cartier's Maison des Métiers d'Art brings together the most precious artistic crafts applied to watchmaking. Devoted to dialogue and research, this institution focuses on numerous forms of watchmaking expertise. This unique project's ambition and bold challenge is to pioneer, unite and preserve rare skills.
The Maison des Métiers d’Art is located near the Cartier Fine Watchmaking Manufacture, in a Bernese-style farm dating back to the late 18th century. Its architecture represents the successful combination of tradition and modernity. While the spirit of the building has been preserved , the interior has been completely redesigned and equipped with latest technology to produce exceptional timepieces. The Maison des Métiers d'Art is a pioneering act for Cartier, and it represents the challenge of upholding relevancy in modern times while honoring tradition and expert practices.
