Cartier Santos 100 W20121U2 – Serviced By Cartier Replica Suppliers

To be apparent (and likewise to Drive), this isn’t a unisex offering — something which Cartier ordinarily excels at — such as the Tank (celebrating its 100th anniversary this season) or the Ballon Bleu with a small but significant male after. Panthère is to be marketed and targeted simply to ladies, irrespective of how little your XY-chromosome wrist could be.Firstly the name, also in Cartier property this huge cat requires no introduction, having become a muse of this maison because 1914. Interestingly, once the watch was first launched in 1983 it was temporarily called the ‘Santos D’ (D for Demoiselle), having borrowed stylistics like a square dial, visible screws on the bezel and incorporated lugs that mix in the bracelet strap out of the punchy big brother.Its re-naming as Panthère was, based on Cartier, due to the supple articulated link bracelet mimicking the motion of a panther because it slinks through the jungle, which sounds faintly ridiculous today. But the necklace in gold, steel or paved in diamonds is exactly what this watch is all about, defining it mostly as a piece of jewellery, which also tells the time.Back in the Eighties, Panthère was started at a time when Cartier was eager to define and capture a new generation of younger customer. A couple of years ago a similar call to action resonated around the Parisian jeweller. “It was obvious we had a powerful manifesto for women,” says Arnaud Carrez, Cartier’s international communciations and marketing manager, “and rather than design a brand new watch it made more sense to re-launch something that has the potential to develop into an icon all over again. The watch is bold and sophisticated,” Carrez goes on, “however feminine, yet not girly. We see it as the perfect accessory, stacked with our Love bangles or the Juste un Clou.”

  • After complaining about how women’s watches are too little and insisting that 36mm is the best size lookout for any girl, I, Cara Barrett, have rediscovered my love for small watches. But that is how fashion and style work — ebbs and flows, and all that. Watches are no exception. As far as this new fascination with smaller watches is concerned, there’s one offender to blame, which is the brand new Panthère de Cartier.Back in January, we watched Cartier re-release its iconic (and I really mean that) Panthère de Cartier. This is a wristwatch that has been first released throughout the Must de Cartier days when it had been marketed to some glamorous 1980s clientele, and it has been a timeless every since. When I saw this new version, I recognized the watch immediately and I knew I needed to get one on to my wrist to get a review as rapidly as possible.Unlike the Tank, the Panthère isn’t a household name. First introduced in 1983 through the heyday of all opulence, the Panthère was praised for its slick design, hidden clasp, and connected bracelet. It quickly became a huge hit among the who is who, men and women alike, with stars such as Pierce Brosnan and Keith Richards amongst the noted wearers (I’ll never love the picture of Brosnan below). During a period when Studio 54 was the hottest nightclub in the city and glamor was all, it’s no surprise that this watch was a hit.

  • The situation may seem to be your average square circumstance, but it isn’t. While square watches often find themselves just appealing to a niche audience, the Panthère finds more universal appeal as a result of sophistication and finesse of the design. In particular, the curved borders and instantly-recognizable screw-down bezel really put the watch apart. The dial is enclosed in a square steel bezel with rounded corners, which, as I mentioned, is set with eight screws (that is mirrored on the caseback). Among the interesting points about the case design is that the curved lugs and crown guards. Both are fluid in appearance and may feel insignificant, but they actually add to the overall design of the item. Without them, the watch would not have exactly the same feeling of dynamism in all.The bracelet is the second most important thing about this watch. When it was first released, people praised this specific bracelet because of its flexibility and sleek appearance. Moreover, the connections are curved, allowing for significantly less weight and more motion, which makes the watch more comfortable on the wrist.For this watch, Cartier Panthere Yellow Gold Replica has used its typical quartz movement. This comes as no surprise for me, however, since the company probably wanted to keep costs down and to make the collection as available and commercially viable as possible. Remember, this is not a market product we’re talking about. So in this instance, it does not bother me one bit that the watch is quartz — haute horlogerie isn’t what this view is about, and I love that it is not pretending otherwise.

  • To be clear (and likewise to Drive), this is not a unisex offering — something that Cartier ordinarily excels at — like the Tank (celebrating its 100th anniversary this year) or the Ballon Bleu with a small but important male after.

When it was first released, people praised this particular bracelet for its versatility and sleek look. Unlike the Tank’s bracelet, with its high brushed center links and industrial texture, the Panthère bracelet is polished with smaller brick-like links. They are laid out in a brick pattern and are attached to one another internally in the top and bottom of each link. Additionally, the connections are curved, allowing for less weight and more movement, which makes the watch more comfortable on the wrist.For that watch, Cartier has used its standard quartz movement.
