Pre-SIHH 2012

For the 22nd Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, Cartier is reversing roles and confounding expectations with a new ladies’ complication, the Masse Secrète panther decor watch, Calibre 9603 MC.

Masse Secrète panther decor watch

A custom-designed movement to house the iconic Cartier panther

The Watch Quote™ - November 26th, 2011



The perfectly-poised panther dashes through the hours, bringing feline agility to this round watch. Playful and powerful, the hero of the Cartier Bestiary tames the movement to the beat of its bejewelled oscillations.

In the grand tradition of watchmaking secrets, this ladies’ complication watch is a true feat of high-tech invention. The oscillating weight of the watch has been inverted and takes the dramatic form of a panther set with diamonds.



Cartier complements the functionality of the weight with a stylish House motif: a three- dimensional panther secretly linked to the calibre, making the big cat seem to prowl all the way around the inky mother-of-pearl dial.

The panther stealthily patrols the hours one by one within a bezel set with multiple rows of diamonds.
