What we Like:Panthères et Colibri by Cartier
Why We Like It: The Maison revisits its iconic mascot, the panther, and crafts a spectacular feminine timepiece. The dial features a black lacquer and diamond adorned panther resting amidst a filigree of wild plants, while a humming bird hovers above. What is truly fascinating is the panther cub hiding behind its mom. As you press the winding crown, the cub pops up to chase the small gold bird, which takes flight along a teeny-tiny arc on the dial. The watch has a three-day power reserve, which is indicated by the breadth of bird’s flight.
The feline in 18k white gold is embellished with 270 brilliant-cut white diamonds and black lacquer motifs, while its eyes are set with pear-shaped emeralds. As many as 314 brilliant-cut diamonds embellish the bezel, creating a halo of light around the mother and cub. The Panthères et Colibri, featuring the new caliber 9915 MC movement, will be officially unveiled at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva.
The Cartier Panthères et Colibri timepiece, featuring a black alligator skin strap, is also available in a gem-set bracelet and is the perfect accessory for a glamorous evening.
