To be clear (and likewise to Drive), this is not a unisex offering — something that Cartier normally excels at — like the Tank (celebrating its 100th anniversary this year) or the Ballon Bleu with a small but important male after. Panthère is to be marketed and targeted just to ladies, irrespective of how small your XY-chromosome wrist could be.Firstly the name, also in Cartier land this huge cat requires no introduction, having been a muse of the maison since 1914. Interestingly, once the watch was initially found in 1983 it was briefly referred to as the ‘Santos D’ (D for Demoiselle), using borrowed stylistics such as a square dial, visible screws on the bezel and integrated lugs that mix in the bracelet strap from the punchy big brother.Its re-naming as Panthère was, based on Cartier, due to this supple articulated link bracelet mimicking the motion of a panther as it slinks through the jungle, which sounds faintly ridiculous today. But the bracelet in silver, gold or wrapped in diamonds is exactly what this view is all about, defining it primarily as a piece of jewelry, which also tells the time.Back from the Eighties, Panthère was launched at a time when Cartier was keen to define and capture a new generation of younger client. Two years ago a similar call to action revolved round the jeweller. “It was obvious we had a strong manifesto for women,” says Arnaud Carrez, Cartier’s global communciations and advertising director, “and rather than design a new watch it made more sense to re-launch something which has the capability to develop into an icon all over again. The watch is bold and sophisticated,” Carrez goes on, “but womanly, yet not girly. We view it as the ideal accessory, piled with our Love bangles or the Juste un Clou.”

What exactly does all this have to do with all the Panthère? To be clear, the Panthère was NOT part of this Must de Cartier La Panthere John Lewis Replica set, which explains the reason why it likely was such a hit with particular clientele. Additionally, there weren’t that many fresh-to-market designs at the moment, making the Panthère more desirable. But what I believe is most interesting about the time of the 1983 launch of this Panthère is that even though it feels like a basic ladies’ watch, it had been quite a large release for Cartier during a period of increasingly affordable timepieces and must have been a hero collection for a heritage maison trying to recover its footing in the worldwide industry. It was initially found in miniature, small, medium, 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 hole in Cartier’s lineup — until now.The Panthère is a ladies’ watch which appears to based on the original Santos, although Cartier does not communicate about the opinion that way in any way. It sports a similar square case with a bezel secured by eight small screws. It’s a traditional horizontal white dial with elongated Roman numerals and the secret “Cartier” signature in the “X” at 10 o’clock. The design is bold, controlled, and utilitarian all at once — without trying too hard. This is the secret to its success and why it appeals to a lot of. The watch today comes in small (22mm) and medium (27mm) sizes, in rose gold, yellow gold, steel, and two-tone. There are a couple different versions, including a variant with black lacquered hyperlinks, that begin to move into top jewelry territory too. For this review, I am focusing on the medium size in stainless steel, which, to me, seems like the best daily-wear option.
In the early 2000s, the style was discontinued, which makes it a classic, but this season, Cartier has brought back the Panthère in all of its glory. Offered in two dimensions and nine finish varieties, the watch comes with an octagonal sapphire crown, Roman numeral hours, a linked bracelet band, and, obviously, those signature screws surrounding the dial.Cartier introduced the covetable timepiece to a crowd born following its beginnings with a weekend-long bash at Indochine in New York City.Think luxury timepiece and the Cartier Panthère watch is sure to come to mind. Now 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 rendered in yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, or stainless steel–with or without diamond bezels so you can choose your level of glam. Additionally, you will find two limited-edition models inspired by spotted panthers–a fun remix on the classic style.But don’t wait long: All these timepieces will be accessible on net-a-porter.
