Cartier manufactures watches, jewelry, fragrances, accessories and gifts. The company, which produced the first wristwatch and the first rectangular watch dial, offers watches for men and women. One popular line of Cartier watches is Ballon Bleu. These timepieces have Roman numeral dials and polished sapphire winding knobs.

Harry Winston manufactures several lines of luxury watches and other wearable timepieces. The Histoire Du Tourbillon line celebrates Harry Winston's technical prowess with a combination of artistic design and exposed gears and dials. Another line, High Jewelry, features ornately jeweled wristwatches, pocket watches and watch pendants.

Hermes offers a small range of luxury watches for women and men. The flagship design is the equestrian-inspired Arceau, which features asymmetrical band attachments that emulate riding stirrups. There are four Arceau models. The original has a steel case, black calfskin strap and the customer's choice of a plain white or black face. The second watch in the Arceau line has an alligator leather strap and a transparent "skeleton" face, which reveals the underlying gears. The third Arceau model has an alligator leather strap, opalescent face and integrated stopwatch dial.
