Other, higher-end Tank versions include variations on the shape and layout, in addition to options such as fancier movements and valuable metals. The Cartier Watches Under 5000 Replica Tank Solo is also available in 18k pink gold. Sportier options are located at the Santos and MC families. But, all of these are more expensive than the entry-level Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic.A great deal of other brands offer rectangular and square watches that are at least influenced by the Cartier Tank, though few are quite successful, it seems. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso is, of course, the other major rectangular, Art Deco watch on the market, but it’s more expensive and actually provides a somewhat different charm. And I have never found one that fits me just right like the Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic does! In case your Cartier Tank alternative must be rectangular, then please try it on first because it’s far more difficult to get proportions and fit right than using a round watch.Another method of appearing at the Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic would see its competitors as conservative dress-style mechanical watches in the $3,000-$4,000 range, round or otherwise. Dress-style watch options exist for practically any budget. For individuals on a much tighter budget, we suggested Orient’s dress watches and appeared at a couple of them. I look forward to readers’ tips.
Perhaps the most classic of Cartier Watches Price Za Replica Tank variants, the Tank Louis Cartier was one of the very first Tank designs, conceived in 1922, just a few short years after the very first, the Tank Normale of 1917, which marks its 100th year in 2017.
The immediate past generation of the Tank Louis Cartier, or Tank LC for short, was available with a mechanical movement only in the largest XL size, while all the others were quartz. The 100th Anniversary models fix that.
Available in two sizes, the new Tank Louis Cartier is a smallish watch. The large model measure 25.5mm wide and 33.7mm long, with a case height of 6.6mm. And the small model is 22mm wide, 29.5mm long and 6.8mm high. The dials are classic Cartier – silvered, guilloche and fitted with blued steel hands.
A Tank Louis Cartier from 1977
Both the large and small models are equipped with the 8971 MC, a hand-wound movement that is actually a Jaeger-LeCoultre cal. 846. It’s a compact movement with a 36-hour power reserve that’s ellipse-shaped, best known for being used in rectangular Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso.
All models are available in 18k pink or white gold, with the option of diamonds set on the case brancards. The large movement without diamonds, arguably the only version that can pass for a men’s watch, is only available in pink gold.
