Directed by Bruno Aveillan, the film will debut March 4 on television screens across the US, France, China, Russia, the UK, Hong Kong and the Middle East.

At the Baselworld 2012, Cartier will be presenting the new Tank Folle hand-wound ladies watch, a reincarnation of the legendary Cartier Crash from the late 1960s.
Clearly influenced by Salvador Dali’s “liquid” clocks, the original watch was an homage to one of Cartier of London senior managers who died in a car crash.
His wrist watch was deformed by fire to a degree of melting and some other member of staff took the destroyed timekeeper as a source of inspiration.
The video shows the famous Cartier leopard running, walking and leaping through an icy terrain while products from the jeweler’s holiday collection emerge from under snow or in bubbles and are simply resting against the landscape.
In the YouTube version, consumers can click on the links that appear in the video to search for the “her,” “him” and “all” products.
For each of the past few years at the SIHH show in Geneva, Cartier has unveiled a “grande complication” wristwatch featuring a tourbillon, perpetual calendar and monopusher chronograph.
This year, Cartier has drawn inspiration from Cartier pocket watches produced in the 1930′s to produce the eye-catching piece you see here.
The watch is crafted in white gold, with skeletonized Roman numerals, something that we have also seen the past few years in some of Cartier’s higher end pieces.
Business Montres quoted an internal memo saying a three-storey 2,200 square metre (24,000 square foot) shop would open early 2013.
The shop would take over the premises of the landmark Old England shop near the Place Vendome, famous for its luxury watch shops and hugely popular with Middle Eastern and Asian tourists, in particular Chinese.
Cartier have collaborated with French band Air to showcase an exclusive new video from the electro group.
Fans looking to see the video for “How Far Would You Go For Love” need to go to the luxury jewelry house’s Facebook page and select ‘Like‘.
Cartier commissioned the clip as part of its True Love Has a Colour and a Name campaign, which features a series of videos celebrating romance.
This piece builds off of previous innovations and design motifs to result in this interesting looking timepiece.
The Caliber 9458 powering the Cadran Lové Tourbillon is a variant of an already existing tourbillon (the ladies “Alligator Tourbillon”) but the watch itself is decidedly masculine, i.e. with sculpted Roman numerals rather than a pave diamond crocodile.
