The Cartier Panthère might be the watch that women ask most for in our store. Probably because this is the perfect combination between a watch and a piece of jewellery. The Panthère was introduced in the '80s and over the years, it truly has maintained its iconic and timeless design: a small squared case and bezel with tiny screws, an octagonal winding crown with sapphire, the five-link bracelet and the white dial with large, black Roman numerals and blued-steel hands. The 18k yellow-gold case only measures 25 x 21 mm. The Panthère we have on offer dates back to the '90s and runs on a quartz movement.  

Introduction

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'. 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 history in watchmaking. Cartier’s first venture in watchmaking came in 1888, offering exclusively lady models. In 1904, Louis Cartier gave his friend and Brazilian aviation pioneer Santos Dumont a wrist 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 wrist watch geared towards men but also the first pilot’s watch!
