When Time Meets The City, Really I Meet Myself

Gorgeous and wanton Los Angeles, I transformed into the most free self.

——Ma Sichun

Los Angeles in May was bright and brilliant. The grand party of the Panthère de Cartier Cartier Cheetah watch held by French temple-level brand Cartier here lights up the charming night of this angel city. Cartier Global CEO Mr. Cyrille Vigneron, together with Cartier brand friend and well-known director Ms. Sofia Coppola, invited more than 500 celebrities from all walks of life to come and witness the modern look of Panthère de Cartier Cheetah Watch. Young actor Ma Sichun, who won the Golden Horse Award for Best Actress not long ago, also discovered herself in the bright night sky of Los Angeles.

The Panthère de Cartier watch is both a delicate watch and a gorgeous jewelry accessory. Its smooth and gorgeous design, timeless and unique shape, soft and comfortable touch, all highlight the graceful style of Ms. Cheetah.

After the party, Ma Sichun immediately plunged into the free sky of Los Angeles with Panthère de Cartier Cartier Cheetah Watch, and explored the enthusiasm and independence hidden in the switch of time and space: she was in the first glow of Santa Monica Cha Beach is chasing the light of dawn, and on the road to the graffiti of Hollywood, the magical fantasy world outlined by DreamWorks, she finds inner calmness and coziness in the wind and the sky, and waves free dance steps in the bright night sky … In the sunrise and sunset, in the wind and light, the Panthère de Cartier watch was placed lightly on her wrist, recording her unrestrained and unrestrained. Every aspect of freshness, charm, calmness, fearlessness and graceful style is Ma Sichun’s most authentic one.

 When the hands point to zero, Panthère de Cartier’s Cartier Cheetah Watch and Ma Sichun come to an end in the 24-hour period in the City of Angels. However, Ma Sichun’s wonderful journey of discovering a new self has just begun. As a representative of modern women in the urban jungle, Ma Sichun and Cartier will jointly present a micro-movie-‘Phantom of the Leopard Pose’, showing another side of her that you do not know. On June 9, stay tuned.

Hermès New Arceau H Déco Jewelry Watch

Precious patterns and skills

   Two new Arceau watches combine mother-of-pearl inlays with jewellery inlays. The H Déco motif is framed by a white gold diamond case, inspired by the Hermes dining porcelain series of the same name, which interprets decorative elements in a unique way. The double H pattern in the center of the dial rotates gently as the wrist swings.

   The Arceau watch was designed by Henri d’ Origny in 1978. The new work highlights two skills full of Art Deco spirit. The rotatable dial is inlaid with mother-of-pearl and set with diamonds, reinterpreting the H Déco motif of the dining porcelain series: the black and white pattern is inspired by the iron decoration of the Hermes boutique on Saint-Honore street in Paris.

   The two H-patterns are intertwined with each other on the mother-of-pearl dial, which rotates gently with the swinging rhythm of the wrist. The contrast between black and white is striking. The black version is set against a ring pattern set with brilliant gemstones; the white version is set with 432 diamonds and decorated with arched white gold rounded corners. The craftsmanship of the watch is exquisite and exquisite. It takes two days for Hermès artisans to complete a dial. The platinum base is first carved to prepare for subsequent mother-of-pearl inlays, and then polished. The mother-of-pearl craftsman carefully cut each piece of pearl to a thickness of only 0.2 mm and set it in place. Finally, the gem setting expert set it with hundreds of diamonds.

   This watch is equipped with a Hermès original automatic mechanical movement, a low-key restraint round case with asymmetrical lugs, set with two rows of brilliant diamonds, and a crown with a rose-cut diamond. The top of the case is paired with a sapphire crystal with the Hermes logo engraving, creating a suspended effect.
   Stirrup-inspired lugs connect the case with a smooth black alligator leather strap, both of which are made in Hermès Watch Workshop.
