Singapore Tatler - - STYLE -

This Ronde Louis Cartier pan­ther watch fea­tures a tech­nique never be­fore seen in Cartier’s time­pieces: wood and gold leaf mar­quetry. A very spe­cialised form of the craft, it in­volves lay­er­ing wood ve­neers over 24K gold leaf. The artist also sands or etches the sur­face to cre­ate var­i­ous de­tails, such as a spot, an out­line, or a trans­par­ent ef­fect. Peri­dots are used to light up the pan­ther’s eyes.
