Historically, Cartier’s lineup has featured many excellent unisex designs, such as the Tank, Roadster, and Ballon Bleu. But in the last two years, they’ve surprised us by announcing some unequivocally gendered releases. Last year’s successful Cartier Drive was pointed directly at their male audience, and for 2017, they have zeroed in on the ladies with the reintroduction of a classic design from the 1980’s, the Cartier Panthère
First launched in 1983, the Panthère features a square dial with small, discreet screws on the bezel. Its integrated lugs blend seamlessly into the five-link bracelet, whose silky movement inspired the watch’s name. Other than enforcing the bracelet and improving its waterproofing, the design remains the same, including the quartz movement. It’s offered in steel, bi-colored, gold, and white gold versions. Some models feature paved diamonds, and for the truly bold, a black enamel panther print that’s unique and unmistakable. In our opinion, the small size is yellow gold makes for a perfect everyday wearer that can stretch into the evening with subtle elegance and striking retro design.
We will be hosting an exclusive Cartier Panthère pop-up shop to showcase this watch fresh from its international debut. Be one of the first in America to get up close and personal with the Cartier Panthère.
