The Cartier Panthere collection embodies Cartier totally, bold, fierce, daring and individual while being undeniably opulent. This example has a plethora of unique features that make it special. To begin with the case itself has curved gold furls at 12 and 6, something which I have never seen before and adds a touch of distinct grandiosity.Secondly, it is inlaid with black enamel within the case on the periphery of the dial, reminiscent of the stripes which you may see around a Panthere's eye. Of course, the finishing touch is the crown which has been encrusted by a diamond. The entire piece has been crafted from 18ct yellow gold and is fastened to the wrist with a gold deployant buckle from the Cartier factory. The dial is stunning, it has a subtle texture that comes to life under close inspection, and dances in the light. All of these subtle pieces come together to create one magnificent, unique timepiece.
It is art on the wrist. Having done extensive research on this piece I can not find another example anywhere, so it is very likely this was made as a one off. It could have been a custom order, alternatively it may have been created for display in a flagship boutique, likely. The Rue de la Paix Maison in Paris.As for the condition, it is absolutely excellent - it has barely been worn at all. The watch has just been routinely serviced and all functions are working perfectly. This is a collectors piece, and while it's of course stunning on the wrist - would appeal to a Cartier aficionado with one eye on the future value of this unique wristwatch. Please note this currently has a small size Cartier strap, and as such will fit a wrist of a maximum of 6 inches, the lug width is 12mm and other straps do fit, but please message before purchasing if your wrist is larger than this.
