The Panthère de Cartier Watch is the Comeback of the year and delights us with its elegant and feminine design
In in the age of the smart watch, connected to an even smarter phone, re-launching a classic with a single function – telling the time – is something I like. In this case, as a matter of fact, something I like a lot.
First I should mention that I’ve been going without one for years now. My beloved chronometer has been “on loan” to my mother since I decided I would only let closely fitted jewelry on my arm, if anything at all – it also looks cooler on her! For a short time, I fell for one of the watches mentioned above. But due to the constant stress with charging, the annoying blinking and alert sounds, and my unwillingness to always adjust the settings to the situation, we parted ways very quickly.
But then came the Panthère. The wild cat line is, in any case, the reason behind our whole team’s overt love of Cartier. And anyhow, we love the classics. You just have to love something as good and beautiful as this wonderful watch – the production and sale of which ceased, and which made it into a legend.
My choice fell immediately to the yellow gold version. And that fits to it exactly – after all, the watch became an icon in the flashy 80s. All the same, there’s a David Hamilton-esque pastel-toned, almost painted look used in the realization of this photo shoot. His sometimes controversial works were created in the 80s (and the late 70s). For me, his style symbolizes purity, naturalness, and harmony – which then also so perfectly fits this wonderful watch that nestles so finely up against the wrist.
