In this year’s Shanghai “Watches and Miracles” Haute Horlogerie Exhibition, Cartier brought a series of brand new TANK series watches, continuing the rectangular aesthetics of the watch models. Among the many new TANK watches, the most concerned is the replica Cartier Tank Must red dial watch, especially the three monochromatic models that shine. I will give you a detailed introduction below.
The replica Cartier Tank was born in 1977. It was also the heyday of the TANK series. In order to continue the elegant shape of the Louis Cartier Tank watch, Cartier launched a gold-plated timepiece, and chose a special plate with a single tone without an hour marker. The dial is also different. Annotated with “Must” and double “C” logos, the burgundy red combined with gold and silver design used in this prototype watch is reminiscent of the precious and luxurious texture of jewelry works. This year’s new work uses Cartier’s three iconic colors red, blue and green, combined with a stainless steel case to show it, and today I will mainly introduce the red dial style to everyone.
The watch’s stainless steel case has a diameter of 33.7 mm x 25.5 mm and a thickness of 6.6 mm, which is a very delicate and unique size for women. The proportions are classic Cartier, which is a challenge when designing new watches for a range of different wrist sizes. The case is mirror polished and has the same case screws that trace their origins back more than a century. Like almost all Cartier Tanks, the caseback is closed, secured with more screws and offers ample space for a small engraving if you were so inclined.
As you might expect from a replica Cartier Tank, the iconic crown is present in these models, complete with a blue synthetic spinel cabochon.
The real dial in the replica Cartier Tank collection are the dials, which are a nod to the colourful dials of the original Must de Cartier watches of the 70s and 80s. The Roman numeral dials on Cartier Tanks are so ubiquitous with the design, that there is definitely something refreshing about seeing a Tank with a totally blank dial apart from the crisply printed logo.
The replica Cartier Tank red watch follows the original design and discards the Roman numeral hour markers and minute track. It adopts a simple style design, and the red lacquered plate has a very outstanding effect. Compared with the original version, the “Must” and double “C” marks have been removed from the disk surface, and only the CARTIER logo and sword-shaped hour and minute hands are set at 12 o’clock.
There is a breathtaking simplicity to this new collection that is hard to articulate the appeal of, but it speaks to the core of what has made Cartier so successful since it was founded in 1847 – elegance through design.
All three replica Cartier Tank Must watch references are powered by High Autonomy Quartz movements (with 8 years before needing a battery change), just like the first Santos-Dumont pieces that were revived in 2019, which is a good thing. Hear me out. By equipping the Tank Must collection with quartz movements, Cartier is able to keep the price significantly more affordable than if the same watch was mechanically powered. This means not only is there a new entry point to the brand, but the new entry point is also one that looks great and carries the Cartier design philosophy forward. Also, most peoples gripe with quartz movements is the ticking of the seconds hand across the dial, which is a reasonable issue. No seconds hand however, no gripe.
Each of the Cartier Tank Must replica watches arrives on an alligator leather strap dyed the same colour as the dial, further emphasising the lighthearted colours of the watches. All of the straps are able to be easily swapped out if you were after a slightly more conservative look, thanks to the quick-change system that can be used with a fingernail.
The official price of the new Cartier Tank Must watch is AUD $ 4150. At this price, it is a good choice for ladies to wear on a daily basis. It also has the function of jewellery. After all, this series of Tanks is very beautiful. At the same time, it is also a very good choice for men to give ladies’ watches as gifts.
