While some watches astonish with its technical aspects, some create a wow sensation with its unique design and once such is the Cartier Revelation D’une Panthere. And certainly, Cartier has hit the right cords with its extremely creative design with the Revelation D’une Panthere. The watch is offered in 3 different dial colors including red, black and green and the watch comes in a 37mm pink gold case with glittering diamonds adorning the bezel. While the de and green dial watches are limited edition watches as only 100 pieces were made, the black edition however is unlimited. The Revelation D’une Panthere is powered using a manually-wound caliber 430.
But one of the interesting aspects of the watch that creates a lasting impact on anyone who sees the watch for the first time is the panther icon that is formed using the 900 tiny gold balls present in the watch. Normally the gold balls are found on the bottom of the watch around 6’0 clock and the moment your wrist, the gold balls go down slowly and amazingly creates a pattern depicting the face of a panther, the icon of Cartier. But the show doesn’t last for long as the tiny gold balls falls down slowly.
While many watches made especially for women feature quartz movements, the Cartier watch comes with a manual wound caliber that further enhances everyone’s interest in this special edition and astonishing design watch. And regarding the panther formation technique, the company states that the mechanism has been patented and it almost took a massive five years of development for that feature alone. And certainly, the years spent has been really worth for Cartier as this feature has evoked a lot of interests amongst many watch lovers around the world.
It seems that Cartier holds a couple of patents on that feature alone as one patent for the liquid used inside the dial and another patent for the use of the type of glass that holds both the tiny gold balls and the liquid inside it. Determining the right amount of viscosity was the major challenge along with making it temperature resistant as it shouldn’t freeze in adverse weather conditions. Other challenges include making the liquid not to damage the tiny gold balls that are always in contact with the liquid and need to ensure that they last for a long time. And true to its name the watch is truly a revelation in itself. The Cartier Révélation d’Une Panthère is priced around $106,000 and even if you are not going to have one in your collection, you definitely need to take a look at this astounding watch that comes with a unique concept.
