Hello, reviving this thread as I am also debating over which Panthere size to get. My wrists are 14cm, but does anyone think overall stature matters? I am 5'6, slim and quite athletic looking overall. Thoughts?
I think it depends on the look you are going for. Both small and medium would look great, but the small definitely looks a lot more elegant and classy in my opinion. I am 5’2 with 14.5 cm wrist and got the small, totally could’ve gone with a medium if I wanted but the medium just felt like a regular watch and didn’t look as special to me. Hope it helps - good luck deciding!

Also keep in mind the overall balance of your daily jewelry! My wrist is pretty small, so I could pull off the small size quite easily. Unfortunately since I wear a large stack on my right arm, I felt that my wrists didn’t look balanced. And I ended up exchanging my small for a medium and am quite happy. I still find the small very beautiful and am contemplating getting a second one in the small size.

Ah yes! I don't wear any bracelets or rings usually so intend the watch to be my one accessory on my arms. Can't decide!! Might have to go into the boutique to try on again.

I think the small size looks more dressy and will work with everyday wear as well as for more dressy occasions. The larger one looks a little more casual. It depends on the look you’re going for. The trend now is for super large watches but it’s all personal preference.

Does anyone have a mini Panthère they could post a picture of? (Any metal) Would love to see what that size looks like! I've known for ages that a Panthère de Cartier is my dream watch. Can't afford it yet, but it's definitely happening at some point! Personally I'd be wearing it for fashion, not function, so I don't really care about a small face being difficult to read. I'm curious what the mini looks like on the wrist, though. Thanks in advance! :smile:
