Replica Watches Cartier Re-Opens Landmark Fifth Avenue Mansion Designed by Thierry Despont

After nearly three years of complete renovation, the Cartier Mansion on Fifth Avenue re-opened last week with much fanfare. The completely revamped mansion is the stuff legends are made of – much like all of Cartier. In fact, the mansion was initially purchased nearly 100 years ago with a pearl necklace.

It was in 1912 that Pierre Cartier, the grandson of founder of the brand Louis Cartier, began a search for a magnificent New York location that would rival the grand Paris Rue de la Paix flagship store. New York wasn’t easy, but eventually, right in the heart of Manhattan, he found a neo-Renaissance style mansion owned by businessman Morton F. Plant. Plant’s wife Mae had seen a natural pearl necklace (with 128 graduated natural pearls) at the cheap replica Cartier watches salon that was located on the 4th floor of a building at 712 Fifth Avenue, where the brand was initially set up. Pierre Cartier proposed to Plant that they barter the $1 million necklace for the $925,000 property. The trade is said to be one of the most astute business moves in Cartier history.

That piece of real estate at 653 Fifth Ave (at 52nd Street) has been the brand’s flagship American store since 1917. Its interior was a richly appointed mansion with large rooms and small rooms, and Cartier hired William Welles Bosworth in 1917 to transform the Morton Plant Mansion into the House of Cartier. Over the century, the exterior and main entrance have changed a few times, and in 1970, the exterior of the building was granted landmark status by the New York Preservation Commission. Since then, little has changed – until now. Just about three years ago, luxury fake Cartier made the decision to bring the interior of the mansion into the 21st century. The brand hired designer Thierry Despont as the lead architect for the two-and-a-half-year renovation.

“I wanted to give people the feeling of being in the grand house that it once was and to restore it to its full glory,” says Despont. “I don’t think there is any other store like it in the world.”

He went about focusing on lines of sight and opening the space up for a more glorious appeal. There are a multitude of rooms inspired by important people in Cartier’s history, including Jeanne Toussaint (Cartier’s most legendary artistic director), Princess Grace of Monaco (an avid fan and collector of exact replica Cartier jewels), and Pierre Cartier. The Toussaint room features fabric walls and embroidered furniture with herringbone wood floors, while the Pierre Cartier room, where classic jewels are shown, features green velvet drapes, a fireplace and wood paneling. The Princess Grace Salon features taffeta silk curtains, white walls and the crests of Monaco on the woodwork.

Other rooms with their own personality in the multi-floor mansion are named for greats such as Elizabeth Taylor, Andy Warhol, Santos Dumont, Gary Cooper and more. On the fourth floor is a luxurious Service Salon, and a seating and bar area. The fifth floor houses the brand’s workshop and the sixth floor is a private entertains space with an expansive terrace overlooking Fifth Avenue.

In total, the new boutique space is four times the size of the previous one and has been expanded from 8,600 square feet to 44,100 square feet across four floors. Everything was custom made including more than 100 different window treatments and 43 different fabrics and wall coverings. There are 30 new chandeliers inspired by the originals, and a host of more than 100 newly acquired antique pieces, including desks and furniture, comprise the overall appeal of the boutique.

The official opening of the event last week included a lavish party in the mansion, as well as an after party across the street. It was a star-studded gala – with the unveiling of a new three-row pearl necklace being unveiled in honor of the original necklace that was traded for the property.

Haute Time’s Four Favorite Big Date Watches

Watches that feature a larger and more prominent date than usual have been increasingly popular. Not only do they have the added benefit that it is easier to read the date, but they are also technically more advanced. A larger date window requires a larger date disc, which requires more energy to move. But it is not only moving the date disc, it is also stopping it at just the right position so that the date is perfectly lined up. To accomplish this a lot of expertise and craftsmanship is required. Here are some of Haute Time’s favorite watches featuring a big date

Lange & Söhne Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase “Lumen”

Lange & Söhne is almost synonymous for the big date function, mainly thanks to the benchmark status that the Lange 1 has conquered over the years. A classic in its own right, Lange & Söhne recently showed us that they could also give this watch a slight sportive edge by applying a luminescent compound to the moon phase and the date function. The result is especially during the darker hours of the day breathtaking. Thanks to the dial made of semi-transparent sapphire crystal glass does this watch also in broad daylight show a side of the Lange 1 we don’t see that often!

Chopard L.U.C. Perpetual Chronograph

A chronograph and a perpetual calendar in one watch is already a very tempting proposition, but cheap fake Chopard watches also tops this off with a big date function. Chopard knows to unite all these complications in a very harmonious, and even symmetrical, dial design. Powered by one of their manufacture L.U.C. movements this watch leaves very little left to desire.

IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Big Date

The Portofino collection is among the most elegant offerings of replica IWC. With the Hand-Wound Big Date, the brand offers the vintage charm of a hand wound movement combined with a classical sub seconds at six o’clock. A generous 8-day power reserve ensures that you don’t have to wind the watch daily, while the big date dominates the top part of the dial, as the most prominent attraction on the dial.

Blancpain L-evolution Tourbillon Large Date

Flying tourbillon or the large date? It is hard to determine which commands the most attention on the best replica Blancpain L-evolution. The flying tourbillon identifies the watch as something truly unique and precious, while the big date shows its inner workings highlighted by perfectly crafted engine turned details of the movement. It is a watch that finds synergy, in contrast, resulting in a bold statement, and the same goes for the big date function in general: practical, technically challenging and always a prominent eye-catcher!
