Cartier's big cat stalks BRIC nations

Cartier is no stranger to big-budget productions, and it's clear which markets the French jewellery house is courting with its latest short film, L'Odyssee de Cartier.

The film, which premiered at private screenings around the world this month, follows a panther who breaks out from his gem-encrusted form inside a Paris museum to undertake a fantastical journey.

Panthers on the prowl at premiere

French luxury jeweller and watchmaker Cartier booked the AMC cinema in Central's IFC Mall this week to screen a 31/2-minute video for the press. And it was worth the effort, given all the hard work that went into making it.

Time is of the essence

Multiple-time-zone watches have become natural choices for frequent travellers. Travel has been part of Vacheron Constantin's history since founder Jean-Marc Vacheron set a trend circling the globe to sell his timepieces, so it seems a natural progression that it would eventually create a timepiece - a pocket watch - with an international time mechanism, which debuted in 1932.

Slimming down

An elegant, slender silhouette is never out of style. The ultra-slim profile has always been with us, but somewhat eclipsed in recent years by the emphasis on oversized, high-performance watches of startlingly innovative design.

Sheer genius

Discovery is the best channel on television. And Shark Week is, undoubtedly, the best week of themed TV. Discovery Channel is as informative as it is entertaining and the best shows are those that feature grotesque creatures that live at the bottom of the ocean - you know, the ones with huge eyes, jutting teeth and transparent bodies. Yes, transparency in all its freaky glory.

Steady tiger

If there is one thing men love doing, it's pointlessly arguing the relative, intangible, merits of disparate things in pseudo-intellectual and zero-sum language. Fence-sitters are ostracised, you are either for something or against it and to hell with compromise and logic. Take, for example, the age-old debate over whether a lion would beat a tiger in a fight.
