Watchmaking Encounters

AVAILABLE IN APRIL 2020

THE PANTHER, THE MAISON’S EMBLEMATIC ANIMAL

Since its first abstract appearance in 1914, Cartier has reinterpreted the panther. From motif to material or volume, everything provides reason to go beyond the different crafts and techniques allowing new creative territories resulting from unexpected encounters.

PANTHÈRE JEWELLERY WATCHES

The encounter between the Panther and the Maison’s savoir-faire has led to the creation of precious, creative and innovative watches.

RONDE LOUIS CARTIER WOOD AND GOLD MARQUETRY WATCH

Made entirely by the marquetry craftsman from the Maison des Métiers d’Art in La Chaux-de-Fonds, this year, the Ronde Louis Cartier watch unveils the technique of straw and gold marquetry. The rendering is reminiscent of bas-relief. An adventurous, unprecedented undertaking that required the marquetry craftsman to be trained in gold work by the jewellers.

Brought to life after more than 100 hours, 97 of which are spent on the dial alone, this creation is available in a limited edition of 30 individually numbered timepieces.

RONDE LOUIS CARTIER ENAMEL FILIGREE WATCH

Designers and craftsmen from the Maison des Métiers d’Art have adapted the filigree technique to be used with enamel. The enamel powder is heated, and the glass is stretched until it takes the shape of bamboo, before being set and fixed to the dial by tiny strands of yellow gold. This watch is available in a limited edition of 30 individually numbered pieces.

Revelation of a panther

With a single flick of the wrist, a flurry of diamonds rushes onto the dial to reveal a graphic and stylised panther, Cartier’s iconic animal.
