The legendary Jeanne Toussaint, who joined Cartier in 1913 and was the director of its high jewellery division from 1933 to 1970, inspired the introduction of the panther motif in Cartier’s jewellery designs. In honour of this phenomenal woman, Cartier introduced the Cartier Panthère watch collection in 1983. The Cartier Panthère wasn’t a completely new design. It took the familiar square case of the Cartier Santos and with a few subtle tweaks—a thinner bezel and delicate bezel screws, smaller crown, tapered lugs, and more rounded curves—a more sensuous and feminine watch was born. The real innovation, however, was the introduction of a new ultra-flexible five-link bracelet. The watch was named Panthère because the suppleness of the bracelet mirrors the graceful movements of Cartier’s emblematic animal This reference 883969 Panthère dates back to 1993 and is executed in an 18k yellow-gold case (measuring 27 x 37 mm), a factory-set diamond bezel, and a matching 18k yellow-gold Panthère bracelet with a hidden butterfly clasp. The lemon-coloured dial features exquisite factory-set brilliant-cut diamond indices and 18k yellow-gold sword hands. This beautiful Panthère is powered by a convenient quartz movement and comes as a full set with the original box and papers.


Cartier  Louis-François Cartier took over his master’s jewellery workshop in 1847. Over the years, his sons and grandsons inherited the family business and expanded the brand by opening shops in New York and London. King Edward VII of the United Kingdom granted Cartier a prestigious royal warrant in 1904, calling the brand “the jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers.” Such was the renown of Cartier, that royal warrants soon rolled in from all over the world (among which, Belgium, Egypt, Greece, Siam, Spain, Portugal, and Russia). While Cartier is known primarily for its jewellery, it also has a storied history in watchmaking. Cartier’s first foray in watchmaking came in 1888, offering exclusively ladies models. In 1904, Louis Cartier gave his friend and Brazilian aviation pioneer Santos Dumont a watch to wear during his flights. Until then, wrist watches were worn exclusively by women and men opted for the traditional pocket watch. The ‘Santos-Dumont’ was not only the first wristwatch geared towards men but also the first pilot’s watch.
