Earlier this year, AAA Cartier Replica introduced the new Tank Américaine. It excited me because it was a gold version with a date and a guilloché dial, and I was unexpectedly charmed by it. I assumed the Tank Américaine would be too elegant and delicate for my wrist. Let’s look at this new stainless steel version in the large size and see whether I’m still impressed.
Compared to that model, it has a flatter case back, but it still has the elongated brancards with the rectangular dial between them. The minute and hour tracks are slightly curved on the top and bottom, and the octagonal crown with the faceted spinel is still there. What has changed, however, is the finishing on the dial
Out with the guilloché, in with the satin-brushed sunburst
The Cartier Replica Watches Swiss Movement rose gold version has a vertically satin-brushed silvered dial. It looks good, but the dial is a bit more understated than it used to be. It seems like the overall design has been sobered up a little. I have to say that I miss the guilloché as it’s one of my favorite types of finishing. On the other hand, I’m happy that the designers removed the date on all sizes of the Américaine.
The stainless steel case is polished and brushed to accentuate its graceful lines. The tops of the brancards are polished, while the two connecting pieces of steel in between them have been vertically brushed. The sides of the Cartier Mens Replica Watches case are horizontally brushed to emphasize its slenderness. And, to improve the wearability, the strap now attaches a little further toward the end of the lugs.It’s a subtle change, but the difference is noticeable.
Seconds hand or not?
When Cartier Replica Watches Ebay launched this new Tank Américaine, only a mini, small, and a large version were mentioned. Up to this point, the French Maison hasn’t confirmed whether a medium-size model is in the works or not. However, having one would make sense because the difference between the small and large sizes is significant. The mini is 28mm long, 15.2mm wide, and 6.5mm thick.
The small measures 35.4mm long, 19.4mm wide, and 6.8mm thick. These watches house a quartz movement and are significantly thinner than their mechanically powered sibling. They both come with a pin buckle, while the bigger size includes a folding clasp.
It’s powered by the automatic Cartier Replica Watches Lowest Prices caliber 1899 MC, a new movement developed to fit the brand’s thinner range of watches. It runs at 28,800vph and provides a 36-hour power reserve. Unlike the quartz versions of the Tank Américaine, the mechanically powered one has a central seconds hand.
Pick your size
Suppose you’ve never worn a rectangular watch before. In that case, it might take some getting used to, and you’ll have to try a few different sizes to get it right. As mentioned, no medium size has been announced yet, so I went with the large because I felt that would be closest to the size I’d choose.
Unfortunately, it’s big for my 17cm wrist. Even though a 44.4mm lug-to-lug might not sound very long, I feel it’s too long for this type of Cartier Replica Watches Discount Forum. It also makes the dial look too big on my wrist; it takes up too much real estate.
The curved brancards give you the impression that the watch is also curved, but it isn’t. So to make it sit nicely on your wrist, it’s better to go for a smaller size than you’d normally wear. However, I’m afraid that for many people, the small model, at 35.4mm long, will be a step too far.
As mentioned, the large Tank Américaine comes with a folding clasp. I appreciate that you don’t have to adjust it every time you put it on, and that’s exactly why I enjoy the butterfly clasp on my Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. But with the Cheap Cartier Replica clasp, you must fold the tip of the strap back into the buckle to size it. This feels like the wrong thing to do with the beautifully made crocodile strap the watch comes with.
