Tame the Panthère


Cartier has always designed form watches. The daring (or crazy?) challenge of linking a very square case with rounded edges and slender links could only be taken up by the Maison. The challenge was largely won and has been declined in solid gold, gold and steel, steel, paved, large size, small size... But we too often forget that it was also sold in a much wiser version: on a leather strap!

This is perhaps the most discreetly luxurious version of the Cartier Panthère. A solid 18-carat yellow gold case, but a on steady leather strap (of course with a solid gold folding clasp ! Afterall, it's Cartier...). This design is so successful that it is perfectly unisex (like that of the Tank or Santos from the same Maison)! The large size presented here reinforces this feeling. This 27mm watch will have a presence on the wrist, whether it is feminine or masculine!

A very easy and comfortable watch on the wrist, as much by the folding clasp as by the use of quartz.

How to wear it

While the other versions of the Panthère on a metal bracelet seem more sporty, this gold watch on a leather strap is dressier and more discreet. 

The strength of the Panthère lies in its sharp yet rounded lines that reduce the purely sporty impression.  The soft edges diminish the purely sporty impression, even with its larger dimensions. The black leather strap also plays a great role in making this Panther ultimately elegant.

Françoise wears it very casually, as an everyday watch. Of course, as a solid gold watch on a leather strap, we can also dress it up for a formal event ! 

Why did Françoise choose it ?

If Françoise chose it, she's not the only one! We have seen it (and we see it again) on the wrists of many actresses, musicians and politicians. If Francoise had to choose one Cartier for her whole life, it is perhaps to a Panthère that Françoise would turn. Or maybe the Tank ? Please don't make her choose ! 

Françoise couldn't miss the opportunity of offering this all-gold version, full set (Cartier collection booklet and certificate of origin) ! 


The Panthère watch was launched in the festive spirit of the 1980s, when Michèle Kaouni was the director of creation at the Maison Cartier. It takes its name from the bracelet: both supple and streamlined, it evokes the way the feline moves, with all its roundness, elegance, and sensuality. At Cartier, the evocation of the panther through its coat is part of its identity. The spotted pattern first appeared on another ladies' wristwatch in 1914, in onyx and diamonds.

From its release, it was adopted by a large and eclectic crowd: Madonna, Keith Richards, Margaret Thatcher. Why not you?
