Panthères et Colibri

Cartier 2016

ref. HPI00776
Women's

Imagined as a tableau vivant, the Panthères et Colibri watch is less a timepiece and more the poetic expression of Cartier's expertise as both watchmaker and jeweller. A majestic panther, her coat paved with diamonds and flecked with black lacquer, takes up the black, diamond-spotted dial. She, not hours and minutes, is the true star of this 42.75-mm watch whose white gold bezel glows with the fire of diamonds. A press on the winding crown, and the panther cub darts from between its mother's paws to startle a golden humming bird which, in its flight, indicates the power reserve. A delicate and precious transposition of a complication made possible by the new Calibre 9915 MC.
