We are in 2016 peeps’ ! The Cartier Ballon Bleu is has-been and Clé de Cartier is so-2015. Time to move on and update your Cartier style with Hypnose diamond paved with diamonds and play around with the Panthère and Colibri watches. Check out what their pre-SIHH 2016 Disney-style has to offer.
When Kaa meets with Baguera …
Not as much as Kaa in the Jungle book.. but the new Cartier Hypnose is so-to-speak hypnotic. The egg-shape in the center is set with 6 oval lines of diamonds where two gold hands indicate the time.
Five additional oval lines of diamonds of different sizes paved the rest of the oval-shaped watch emphasizing the black on white contrast of the diamonds marked by halos of grey gold.
The case is made of 18-carat white gold with a bezel and a dial set with brilliant-cut diamond. A black lacquer halo surrounds the case in a semi-oval shape in between two lines of diamonds. Mounted on a black alligator skin strap, the large model of the Hypnose Cartier watch is set with a quartz movement.
You better watch out Kaa because Bagheera is coming around…
Panthere and Colibri
If panthers have always been part of the Cartier DNA, the brand has decided to make it shine for the SIHH 2016 paved it with 270 diamonds, black laquered spots and emeralds for the eyes.
Bagheera 2016 or Cartier’s panthere gently lies on the filigree black dial with a humminbird made of rose gold flying above it. A charming spectacle until the winding crown is pressed to let the rose gold baby panther (that actually looks like Simba due to his color) escaping from the paws of its mother to go chase the colibri bird.
The case is made of 18-carat white gold set with 314 brilliant-cut diamonds of a 42.75 mm diameter. The on-demand power reserve indicator is located between 12 and 2 within a trail of a quarter of circle where the colibri flies.
Trust in me … just in me … Cartier is brilliant !
