The Panthère jewellery watch
The Panther expresses its figurative and naturalistic essence through Cartier precious watchmaking.
Reproducing the spirit of the animal
Precious, magnetic and powerful... the Panthère jewellery watches have been the subject of many workshop hours at the Cartier design studios. The emblematic animal is brought to life through savoir-faire innovations: a novel approach to onyx, cut to make a panther’s nose, and diamonds that explore multiple setting techniques, including the shagreen diamond setting that maximises the stones’ radiance.
Panthère de Cartier:
an icon of jewellery
For Cartier, the most important aspect of savoir-faire is the hyphen between “savoir” and “faire”: the incessant back-and-forth between designers and craftsmen, the fruit of a creative dialogue and productive exchanges.
The challenge? Introducing movement within the dial. Inspired by an hourglass, cutting-edge technology and traditional practices come together to push the boundaries of watchmaking. 650 small diamonds reveal the face of a panther right before our eyes. The fruit of five years of hard work, this magic is recognised by two patents.
