The intense gaze of two emerald eyes, a feline body that appears to leap from the dial… Cartier’s favourite feline is in a playful mood as it chases after a diamond ball, always just out of reach. A preview of the Panthère Joueuse Calibre 9918 MC watch, before the big reveal at SIHH.

The panther, the iconic animal of the Cartier menagerie, is in a playful mood in this new complication watch by the Maison.
In a dramatic scene powered by a brand-new complication, the mischievous creature appears to pounce from the dial in pursuit of a ball. The calibre moves as one with the body of the panther to bring this miniature theatre to life. The minutes are indicated by the head and paw of the figure, while the hours are marked by the ball.
Exhibiting exquisite craftsmanship in a display of diamonds, black lacquer and emeralds, Cartier brings the panther to life with a new movement. The workshops have joined forces to channel the jewellery expertise of the Maison and its air for rendering these strikingly lifelike three-dimensional creatures. The watch is transfigured by the presence of the panther and the hidden mechanism that marks the passage of time in a never-ending game.
