True elegance never goes out of style, and this is certainly true in the case of the Panthère de Cartier watch. A beautiful amalgamation of watchmaking and fine jewellery, the 2018 reimagining of the classic timepiece pays tribute to the beauty and grace of the maison’s female patrons.
Panthère de Cartier
Elegance and Excess
Cartier has, over time become known for striking the delicate balance between elegance and excess, something that is reflected in every timepiece created by the renowned watchmaker. Embodying the manifesto of excess disciplined by elegance and elegance embellished with excess, Cartier has mastered the art of showcasing the contrast in a subtle yet generous manner.
The Panthère de Cartier, in its 2018 avatar is a stunning piece of horological craftsmanship which represents the sensuality of its wearer. The bracelet is available as either a double or a triple loop, that drapes itself around the wrist seamlessly.
Originally launched in 1983, the Panthère has stood the test of time. The updated version of this classic timepiece features the same square case as the original, with screws on the bezel. The dial showcases the maison’s signature roman numerals and a railway track index, with the Cartier logo embossed into the X digit. The use of quartz movements ensures that the watch remains tastefully slim while the supple construction of the bracelet marks the advancement of watchmaking skill and artistry.
The Panthère de Cartier with the double or triple wrapped bracelet is available in different case sizes. Both the double and triple wrapped styles are available in steel as well as 18K yellow, white or rose gold, with selected rose gold models paved entirely with diamonds in a dazzling homage to the original 1980s icon. Other variations feature diamond set bezels. The watch is also available in a dual toned variation with rose gold and steel.
The Cartier name has long been associated with feminine grace and beauty, and the feline elegance of the Panthère de Cartier is a reflection of the sophistication and self-assuredness of today’s woman of substance, one with impeccable taste and an unwavering idea of exactly what she wants.
