Polo luxury announces release of Cartier luxury wristwatches

Polo Luxury, one of Nigeria’s frontline retailer of luxury watches has once proven its commitment to satisfying customers’ crave for class and elegance with the release of Cartier luxury wristwatches. Boasting a network of some of the world’s most affluent brands and individuals, Polo’s legacy for ground-breaking innovation is reiterated through their exclusive partnership with the French watch brand, Cartier.

A French jeweller founded by Louis-Francois in 1847, Cartier supplies luxurious treasures, mixing modern design with timeless flair. The brand is recognised for its high-quality workmanship and royal heritage. In a statement, it was learnt that Cartier was the supplier to the Royal Court of France during Napoleon III’s reign, and described by Edward VII as “the jeweller of kings, and the king of jewellers.”

With flagship locations in Paris, London, New York, Tokyo, and Shanghai, among others, Cartier has one of the most enviable claims in horology history—the purveyor of the world’s first men’s wristwatch, the Cartier Santos. Today, Cartier has a strikingly beautiful catalogue of some of the most sought-after timepieces in existence, including the Cartier Tank Solo, The Cartier Clé De Cartier, and the Pasha De Cartier.

Historically, the Pasha De Cartier is an iconic timepiece, originally designed for the Pasha of Marrakesh in 1933, and considered to be the first waterproof watch from Cartier. In 1985, the legendary watch designer Gérald Genta designed a version of the Cartier Pasha whose form is still celebrated.

The 2020 design pays homage to Cartier’s traditional watch-making style, combining the original 1980’s model with a more defined silhouette, and several innovative mechanisms and enhancements. Cartier’s patented QuickSwitch system brings an element of modernity to this timepiece, customers can customise between the steel, gold, and leather straps for a truly personal look.

Complete with a sapphire crystal lens, the Pasha De Cartier is available in stainless steel, 18K yellow gold, 18k pink gold, 18k white gold, and diamonds.


Commenting on the relationship between Polo Luxury and Cartier, Jennifer Obayuwana, the executive director of Polo Luxury said the partnership between Cartier and Polo Luxury was a testament to Polo’s unrivalled positioning as West Africa’s leading retailer for high-end goods.

“Since the beginning of our relationship 10 years ago, Polo Luxury has continued to prove itself to be the perfect ally for Cartier in this region, attracting opulent customers from across the world to shop the brand in our Nigeria based boutique stores,” Obayuwana.

Cartier’s refined catalogue of luxury timepieces and jewellery are available for purchase exclusively at Polo Luxury, Nigeria.
