1. Cartier – Panthere de Cartier

First up on our list of the top luxury watches for women is the Panthere de Cartier. The wild panther has been Cartier’s muse since 1914, after Louis Cartier became so enamored with his commissioned painting, “Woman with a Panther” by George Barbier, of a women with a panther at her feet.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that Cartier’s iconic panther expanded from just Cartier’s jewelry collection and influenced their timepieces. Arnaud Carrez, Cartier’s global communications and marketing director explained that, “The Panthere is at the crossroads between a jewel and a watch.”

When the Panthere watch collection debuted in 1983, they were quickly loved by fashionistas and celebrities. As the Panthere de Cartier comes in all three gold types as well as steel, they can accommodate anyone’s style. The Panthere’s case is square with curved edges while its crown and lungs are tapered to accent the fluid design of the case. Thanks to the watch’s quartz movement, its case is thin. 8 small exposed screw heads sit on the sapphire crystal bezel and certain models offer a brilliant diamond set bezel. The dial is incredibly legible thanks it its roman numeral hour markers, with Cartier’s signature incorporated at 10 o’clock, and railway track index.

When Cartier first introduced this timepiece, they wanted the Panthere to reach a younger client base, which was also true when Panthere de Cartier was revived in 2017. Arnaud Carrez stated, “It was clear we needed a strong manifesto for women and rather than design a new watch it made much more sense to re-launch something that has the potential to become an icon all over again.”

The Panthere’s fierce yet sophisticated style remained, but now with several structural revisions such as increased water resistance and a stronger 5-link bracelet. The watch is available in a variety of metals including yellow gold, white gold and pink gold.

This watch features:

  • A quartz movement which helps to keep the case thin.
  • Highly legible dial because of the roman numeral hour markers and a railways track index.
  • Functionality as the perfect accompaniment when layering Cartier’s jewelry on the wrist.

  • A parachrom hairspring within the movement allows for excellent shock resistance.

The Twenty-4’s rectangular case and integrated link bracelet’s perfectly contours the wearer’s wrist. Furthermore, the bracelet’s fold-over clasp proudly displays Patek Philippe’s iconic cross.

The timepiece’s elegant dial features roman numerals at 6 and 10 o’clock with the other hours represented by diamonds. Also, two rows of diamonds sit on the sides of case, enhancing the overall brilliance of the Twenty-4.

According to Patek Philippe, the Twenty-4 encapsulates, “timeless feminine elegance”. It’s no wonder why the Twenty-4 is so well received among female watch enthusiasts. True to the watch’s name, the Twenty-4 can be worn at any time of day and is perfect for any occasion.
