Because having spent 2016 spoiling the boys with the very handsome and successful Drive p Cartier (unofficial figures set UK earnings of the men’s cushion-shaped timepiece as with doubled expectations), 2017 is all about the girls, with the re-launch of the 1980s Panthère.
The brand new Panthère comes in 2 sizes, small and medium, measuring 22mm and 27mm in diameter. Both sizes include the exact same square case using screwed-down bezel and connected brick-lay bracelet with concealed folding clasp. These are powered by a quartz movement, which is not perfect, but this watch is not about technological progress. The collection runs the gamut from very affordable models in steel, to full gem-set high jewelry pieces.Cartier being Cartier, there are also several models that are more directly inspired by the seen panther motif, which has been widely researched by Cartier’s legendary and charismatic design director, Jeanne Toussaint.This is a welcome re-edition to the Cartier line, beside the Tank, the Panthère is among the most iconic women’ watches. Cartier’s Panthère view was the rage in the 80s.

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, or in the instance of Cartier’s most up-to-date view launch, another way round. Since having spent 2016 spoiling the boys with the very handsome and successful Drive de Cartier (unofficial figures put UK sales of their men’s cushion-shaped timepiece as with doubled expectations), 2017 is all about the girls, with the re-launch of their 1980s Panthère.
The case may seem to be your typical square case, but it is not. While square watches often find themselves just appealing to a niche audience, the Panthère discovers more universal appeal as a result of sophistication and finesse of the design. In particular, the curved edges and that instantly-recognizable screw-down bezel really put the watch aside. The dial is enclosed in a square steel bezel with rounded corners, which, as I mentioned, is set with eight screws (that is mirrored onto the caseback). One of the interesting things about the case design is 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 piece. Without them, the watch wouldn’t have exactly the same sense of dynamism in all.The bracelet is the second most important thing about this watch. When it was initially released, folks praised this specific bracelet for its flexibility and sleek look. Contrary to the Tank’s bracelet, with its high brushed center links and industrial feel, the Panthère bracelet is polished with smaller brick-like links. Moreover, the links are curved, allowing for less weight and more motion, making the watch more comfy on the wrist.For this view, Cartier has employed its typical quartz movement. This comes as no surprise to me, however, as the business probably wanted to keep costs down and to make the collection as accessible and commercially viable as possible. Remember, this isn’t a market product we’re talking about. So in this instance, it does not bother me one bit that the opinion is quartz — haute horlogerie isn’t what this watch is about, and I love that it is not pretending otherwise.
So what does all this have to do with the Panthère? To be clear, the Panthère was NOT part of the Must de Cartier set, which is the reason why it likely was such a hit with particular clientele. Additionally, there weren’t that many fresh-to-market designs in the moment, which makes the Panthère more desirable. But what I believe is interesting about the timing of the 1983 launch of the Panthère is that even though it seems like a basic ladies’ view, it was rather a big release for Cartier throughout a time of increasingly affordable timepieces and have to have been a hero collection for a legacy maison attempting to regain its footing in the global industry. It was initially launched in mini, small, moderate, and large sizes, in two-tone and yellow-gold choices (with a steel version introduced in 1991). The Panthère vanished sometime in the early 2000s, leaving a gap in Cartier’s lineup — until now.The Panthère is a ladies’ watch which seems to based on the first Santos, though Cartier does not communicate about the watch that way in any way. It features a comparable square case with a bezel secured by eight screws. It has a classic horizontal white dial with elongated Roman numerals and the secret “Cartier” touch in the “X” at 10 o’clock. The plan is bold, controlled, and utilitarian all at once — without trying too hard. This is the secret to its success and why it appeals to so many. The watch today comes in small (22mm) and medium (27mm) dimensions, in rose gold, yellow gold, steel, and two-tone. There are a few different variations, including a version with black lacquered links, that start to move into high jewelry territory as well. For this review, I’m focusing on the moderate size in stainless steel, which, to me, seems like the best daily-wear option.
From the early 2000s, the design has been discontinued, which makes it a classic, but this season, Cartier has brought back the Panthère in all of its glory. Offered in two sizes and nine finish varieties, the watch has an octagonal sapphire crown, Roman numeral hours, a connected bracelet band, and, obviously, these signature screws surrounding the dial.Cartier introduced the covetable timepiece to a bunch born after its infancy with a weekend-long bash at Indochine at New York City.Think luxury timepiece and the Cartier Panthère watch is guaranteed to come into mind. The luxury jeweler has awakened with Net-a-Porter to start a modern re-edition of the iconic early-’80s watch, and ultimate girl crush Georgia Fowler is fronting the campaign.The brand new Panthère collection features 12 watches left in yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, or stainless steel–with or without bead bezels so you may choose your level of glam.

In order to fully comprehend the effect of this type of watch, it is very important to understand what it was up against at the moment. After the death of Pierre Cartier Panthere Fake Replica in 1964, his two children and nephew moved to sell the family enterprise. Because of this, the company was divided into three semi-autonomous businesses, Cartier New York, Cartier Paris, and Cartier London, with each producing different products at different times. This generated an irregular brand approach and allowed for every place to do its own thing. In one particular case, Cartier New York began selling a gold-plated steel Tank watch for $150 at 1971. It was unheard of at the time, and greatly devalued the image of the brand in the eyes of many longtime patrons.You need to remember that, in the time, Cartier was the ultimate luxury brand up until the 1970s it had been producing super distinctive, astronomically costly, and incredibly high-quality objets — believe Mystery Clocks, personalized portrait watches, and elaborate cigarette cases. So promoting a gold-plated watch was sacrilege, although the watch did very well commercially. Despite marring the image, the idea of a less costly watch later resulted in the Must de Cartier set in 1977, after Cartier was bought by a group of shareholders. The collection was the brainchild of Joseph Kanoui (who gathered a group of shareholders to buy Cartier, Paris), Alain Dominique Perrin, and Robert Hocq. The collection contained a variety of shapes and was made in gold-plated silver, allowing for a more reasonable price. It was a method of re-branding and appealing to a broader audience (similar to Montblanc and TAG Heuer creating smartwatches now), when quartz movements came into play, it had been all the more accessible.
What exactly does all this have to do with all the Panthère? To be clear, the Panthère was NOT a part of this Must de Cartier set, which is why it likely was such a hit with particular clientele. Additionally, there were not that many fresh-to-market designs in the time, which makes the Panthère more desirable. But what I think is interesting about the time of the 1983 launch of the Panthère is that even though it feels like a simple ladies’ view, it had been quite a large release for Cartier during a time of increasingly affordable timepieces and have to have been a hero set for a heritage maison trying to regain its footing in the worldwide market. It was first launched in mini, small, medium, and massive dimensions, in two-tone and yellow-gold choices (with a steel version introduced in 1991). The Panthère vanished sometime in the early 2000s, leaving a gap in Cartier’s lineup — before now.The Panthère is a girls’ watch which appears to based on the first Santos, although Cartier doesn’t communicate about the watch that way at all. It sports a comparable square case with a bezel secured by eight small screws. It’s a classic flat white dial with elongated Roman numerals along with the secret “Cartier” signature in the “X” at 10 o’clock. The plan is bold, controlled, and utilitarian all at once — and without trying too hard. This is the secret to its success and why it appeals to a lot of. The watch now comes in little (22mm) and medium (27mm) sizes, in rose gold, yellow gold, steel, and two-tone. There are a couple other versions, including a version with black lacquered hyperlinks, that begin to move into high jewelry territory too. For this review, I’m focusing on the moderate size in stainless steel, and that, to me, seems like the very best daily-wear option.
