The one book to have for the Holiday Season
for actually every watch collector, is 'The Cartier' by Francesca Cartier Brickell.
This book is not about watches, but about the history of one of the most famous jewelry houses, Cartier.
And Francesca is not one of the new writers on the block, to tell you some nice stories.
In fact, the lady is the grand, grand, granddaughter from Jacques Cartier, one of the three Cartier brothers.
In her book that contains more than 600 pages, Francesca explains how the company was set up, divided and sold
and everything that would come up to her mind.
Now tell me who would do a better job in writing such a history book, than one of the family members?
Highly recommended and available from any (online) bookstore.
