Perhaps more so than any other brand, Cartier has a knack for creating watches that defy any grounding in a specific place in time. They are icons that appear in old black and white photos but eschew the concept of age. Want an example? Look no further than Cara’s detailed and thoughtful look at a Cartier that often takes a back seat to the famed Tank, the diminutive yet dynamic Panthère de Cartier.
At 27mm wide, this is a watch that knows no weight class and has graced the wrist of the famous and the stylish since it was launched back in 1983. Take a few minutes to dig Cara’s words as she highlights the history, market placement, on-wrist impressions, and context for a well-known but perhaps under-appreciated model from a brand that defines flexible and timeless elegance.
