Cartier Panthere Joueuse Calibre 9918 MC

Utilising a new 9918 MC calibre, a single large diamond ball encircles the dial, serving as the hour hand, while the paw of Cartier’s iconic panther denotes the minutes on this Panther Joueuse model. The panther itself is encrusted with 255 diamonds, with black lacquer spots and emerald eyes. The detailed watch face is surrounded by a white gold case, paved with 320 diamonds and fitted with an elegant white alligator strap.

The Panthere Joueuse Calibre 9918 MC will be exclusive to Harrods throughout July 2017 priced at £157,000.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Duetto Jewellery

In the 86 years since the original design was launched, the Reverso has become Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most iconic model. Inspired by the original ladies’ Reverso cocktail watches of the 1920s and 30s, this pink gold timepiece embodies Art Deco elegance and femininity.

Limited to only 8 pieces globally, the Reverso Duetto Jewellery will be exclusive to Harrods from July 2017 – September 2017 priced at £54,000.

The RM 50-03 is the first wristwatch made from Graph TPT, a recently developed, ultra light material. The entire piece, including strap, weighs less that 40 grams making it the lightest mechanical chronograph ever made.

The RM 50-03 McLaren F1 is exclusive to Harrods throughout July 2017 priced at £996,500.
