Cartier Panthere Duo High Jewellery

It’s a double dose of the French house’s signature panther on this wristwatch shaped out of two felines with their paws meeting around the dial. The intricate composition of white gold, brilliant-cut diamonds, onyx spots and emerald eyes gives the cats an opulent twist.

The undulating waves on the dial are crafted in the proprietary 18k Sedna gold and paved with 191 diamonds. The hour markers are marquise-cut rubies while the bezel glitters with diamonds. But it’s not just a fine-looking jewellery watch as it is also endowed with the robust Master Chronometer Calibre 8807 that offers superlative precision, performance and anti-magnetic resistance.

The shimmer of red sapphires on the bezel and diamonds on the lugs beautifully complements the celestial constellation of zodiac signs on the dial. In a showcase of the maison’s métier d’art, all 12 signs were delicately enameled in silver on a red dial.
