Grace. Elegance. Class. These are the defining characteristics of Cartier’s stunning Panthère de Cartier collection. Absent from the Cartier range for more than a decade, the Panthère de Cartier collection makes its triumphant return in 2017, much to the delight of stylish fashionistas everywhere. With something to suit just about every taste (and budget), read on to discover what the Panthère de Cartier collection has to offer you.
The original Panthère de Cartier collection first debuted all the way back in 1983. Bold yet distinctively feminine, Panthère de Cartier watches quickly became some of the brand’s most iconic ladies pieces. Several decades later however, Cartier made the decision to discontinue production of the collection, leaving many loyal fans wishing for more.
Well, it seems, those wishes have been not only heard by Cartier but also granted. The Panthère is back, and looking slicker than ever. Best of all, Cartier has gone all out. This is not just a toe dip to test the waters but instead a full-blown commitment, with two different case sizes, and an impressive nine metals/finishes available. The hardest question now becomes, which model is right for you this season?
To give you an idea of just how much choice there is, let’s run through the models quickly. There’s yellow gold, rose gold, rose gold with a diamond bezel, white gold with a diamond bezel, white gold covered in diamonds, white gold covered in diamonds with black enamel animal spots, two-tone steel and yellow gold, plain steel, and a very special limited edition rose gold with black lacquered links to complete the collection.
If you thought that didn’t offer enough variety to suit the coming season, there is also a choice between models with a simple finish as well as those which are high-jewellery, high-fashion gem encrusted works of art. You are quite literally spoilt for choice.
As previously mentioned, the new collection offers pieces in two different case sizes; small (22mm) and medium (27mm). Whichever your preference, both sizes feature a slick square-shaped case, with screwed-down bezel, roman numerals, railway track index, and the classic linked brick-lay bracelet inset with concealed folding clasp. Inside is a highly reliable, and accurate, quartz movement.
So, join us please, as we welcome a much loved - and incredibly stylish - friend back into our lives.
