The Panthère de Cartier has an unmissable identity…a purist streak…a fashionable heart. HOT explores the different faces of the timeless watch.
There is great beauty in simplicity, as can be seen from the iconic Panthère de Cartier. Though this watch collection is primarily quartz based, the purist aesthetic makes it a classic and a signature timepiece.
Cartier has given a fresh rein to the truly stylish Panthère de Cartier. The revived collection is in a range of metals and finishes, to suit every free spirit! So, there are two sizes, and nine options for finishes (which also include options for the different metals used). There is a medium sized watch (27 mm) and a small sized model (22 mm). The metal of choice for the case includes steel, white gold, yellow gold and rose gold. There are diamond set options too, for those looking at investing in haute jewellery. That’s quite a mix of options!
As we all know, the panther is the symbol of the brand. This calls for a watch that has the mark of this royal cat! The spotted panther motif does find its way into this collection as well. There is a white gold watch covered in diamonds with black enamel animal spots, and a limited edition rose gold with black lacquered links.
The original aesthetics of the collection remain: square case with screws on the bezel, Roman numerals, railway track index, and a tiny Cartier logo embossed in the X digit. These are the elements that give the watch a unique identity and a very distinct look, despite the varied options in the finishes.
The collection has a range of watches. Right from the simple steel ones, to the gem studded ones, there is one for every budget and every style. It cements the maison’s dedication to producing a pure jewellery watch- touching the very roots of the DNA of the brand.
Panthère de Cartier is one timeless investment- a precious watch that can easily work across different occasions at different times of the day.
