Making fine jewelery for over one hundred and fifty years, the Cartier brand is experienced in crafting innovative and timeless pieces in all types of precious materials. Cartier’s Love WE800131 captures this skilled artistry along with a traditional Cartier statement of romance and dedicated love.

The original Love bracelet was released in the 1970s and featured both diamonds and screws, as your significant other would screw the bracelet on with a small screwdriver of which they were then the keeper. This popular motif was then transferred to the Love collection of watches, where the screws and diamonds are featured around the case.

The case is crafted from 18 karat white gold, is rounded and set with three screws and three dazzling diamonds. With this detailed and extravagant case, the face itself remains understated with only black roman numeral hour markers on a neutral silver background. The sword-shaped watch hands, however, provide a significant contrast and moment of color as both hour and minute hands are bright blue.

Holding the functioning part of the watch to your wrist is a black fabric band that secures with an 18 karat white gold buckle—keeping the delicate materials of the case consistent all the way around your wrist. Along with these unique features, Cartier watches also come with a few standard features, such as sapphire crystal that protects the face of your watch from scratches and reflective light; Swiss-quartz movement to keep you always running at the correct time; and water-resistance down to a depth of one-hundred feet or thirty meters—just enough to keep your purchase safe in the shower and for shallow swims.

Cartier’s Love Watch Collection features an impressive variety of watches that should allow this watch to match with all of your accessories, outfits, and any mood in which you might find yourself.

  • Rose gold with six diamonds around case—WE800531

Many of these variations also feature the word “Love” engraved onto the back of the watch case. Cartier’s Love WE800131 is a wonderful gift that makes a subtle, yet passionate statement.
