Cartier is nothing without its signature icons; some have been discontinued, some stood the test of time, and others were revived. One such collection to be revisited in its watch division is the Panthère, which was first introduced in 1983, before its discontinuation in the early 2000s. This year, Cartier has decided to reinstate this collection with much gusto, in two sizes for each of the nine different metals or finishes, albeit with subtle technical improvements that are a given from the past 40 years. All styles feature the signature square case with screwed down bezel and sizes vary from 22mm to 27mm versions. A personal favorite is the pink gold version with black lacquer detail, which harkens to a decade long gone but ends a timeless quality to the collection. Though a quartz movement, this collection isn’t about technological evolutions, rather celebrate the enduring qualities of this eighties original.
