Place Vendôme is one of the five "royal squares" of Paris and is located in the middle of the city between the Paris Opera and the Tuileries Gardens in the 1st arrondissement. Designed in the splendid neoclassical style from the end of the 17th century and framed by magnificent townhouses called hôtels particuliers, the square is nowadays best known as the site of the French Ministry of Justice and the Hotel Ritz, as well as for the numerous salesrooms of luxury jewellery and watch manufacturers located on the square. The Cartier Vendôme honours this place and embodies its reputation for excellence and splendour.—

"Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by the jeweller Louis-François Cartier, who in 1899 handed over to his three sons. They would establish the company internationally, not least by making the Cartier name a favourite among the crowned heads of Europe. Named ""King of Jewellers, Jeweller of Kings"", the brand was quick to turn its attention to watches. Many have become modern-day icons, such as the Santos (1904), the first wristwatch actually ever created, the Tortue (1912) and the Tank (1919). They were followed by other noteworthy creations, including the Pasha, the Santos 100, the Ballon Bleu and the Calibre.
The Cartier family retained ownership of the firm until 1964. It is now part of the Richemont Group.
