A veritable symbol of the art of living, polo has its own clans, codes, and destinations. First played in Persia, and then spread from Central Asia to India, polo would seduce the British colonialists who embraced this sport of kings and king of sports. They exported the game to the Western world, all the way to the Argentine Pampas.
Today, polo teams travel a worldwide circuit, from Windsor to St. Moritz, and Dubai to Buenos Aires, to compete in contests that recall the jousting matches of warriors. Cartier, jeweler to kings, princes, and maharajahs, is an enthusiast of the sport and sponsors some of the most spectacular tournaments in the world, combining elements of passion, audacity, and the chic and cosmopolitan art of living.
