Introducing: The Cartier Tank Cintrée In Three New Editions –

Brisk Take

Though subtleties are scant, it’s not difficult to see from the outset that these three new Tanks are great. There are three unique metals to browse – platinum, pink gold, and yellow gold – and each comes with a one of a kind dial, all of which have an unmistakable vintage feel. At 46.3mm x 23mm, the bended case is both somewhat more and somewhat slimmer than the “Enormous” size Tank Américaine, so these should wear like a genuine old fashioned Cintrée as well. As they ought to be, every one of the three are physically twisted with thin developments fitted inside the 7.2mm-thick cases.

The Tank Turns 100

Last year was the Tank’s 100th birthday celebration. To observe, Cartier delivered an assortment of exceptional Tanks in September that incorporated a skeletonized Cintrée just as this hardened steel Tank Américaine (a descendent of the Cintrée). Look at Stephen’s A Week On The Wrist survey of the last here.

Why This Watch Matters

The Cintrée has been generally overlooked via Cartier for quite a while now, and it’s acceptable to see the brand resuscitating a vintage top pick. That they chose to do as such with an incredible skeleton a year ago for the Tank’s 100th commemoration was extraordinary, and to follow it up with this triplet of exquisite choices is stunningly better. The equilibrium of the generally speaking pared-down styling and the somewhat lavish Arabic numerals at 12 and six, just as the rich dial completes is fantastic.

Beginning Thoughts

I mean, who could want anything more here? Truly. After momentarily seeing these in the metal (we’ll have live pics for you soon!), I can say that the dials are off-the-diagrams great and the cases a close to consummate size. The platinum is my undisputed top choice, yet the yellow-on-yellow may be one of the general sleeper hits of the show.
