If you like jewelry and are lucky, you have a little Cartier in your life. Their iconic designs–the rolling ring, the Love bracelet, their tank watches, never get old. Last week, Cartier, relaunched their slim bracelet watch, the Panthère, and they’re available on Net-a-Porter (where the picture of Ruth Wilson, above, comes from). I have a stainless Panthère from years back. I also have a gold Cartier Tank Française. (I am doubly lucky.) But both have been sitting in my jewelry box for quite a while.
A slim bracelet watch (even a leather-strap tank) is so feminine and polished. And plenty of uber stylish women (see below) have worn them over the ages. I think it’s time to dust mine off. And if you don’t have a slim, feminine watch, maybe it’s time to invest in one. It’s a classic, you can’t go wrong.
