“Everything old is new again” - Peter Allen song

Just ordered this, for delivery sometime June-September.  Wanted something I could slap on my wrist without a thought.  QUARTZ!! Have I gone insane?  Supposedly an 8-year battery, I think.

Well, I missed the train that left the Reverso Rouge Station, so this ”must” suffice.  (Get it?)
The new Must 2021, burgundy.  I’ll likely regret not getting the one mechanical in the series.  Oh, well.

....i would prefer a clean dial as it is-----i am seriously looking to add one of these on my wrist,the other colours are just as attractive.

Well, color me surprised at the interest in the new quartz Tanks!

I think it shows a generosity of spirit among the Puristi. A simple but well-executed quartz gets respect, along with uber-high horology perpetual calendars. Good coverage of the watch spectrum! Ano “I’ll take that perpetual now, thank you” Nuevo

If i’m not mistaken, this one has always been quartz? I’d prefer a manual but it is what it is .. and how else are we gonna scratch the jlc reverso rouge itch..

Also, i think quartz would work for this Cartier but won’t work with a JLC reverso rouge. The latter HAS TO BE manual

Hehehe... ;)

Having myself rediscovered the merit of quartz I couldn't agree more! I may have preferred another color for the cabochon but maybe too monochromatic: ...  

well chosen...sensual and classy in my eyes !

the other version of Tank with photovoltaic dial is also interesting !! enjoy the wait & pls share wrist shots once you've the rouge on your wrist. Best, mahesh.,

I’m hoping for an early arrival, mahesh. Wrist shots, oh yes, definitely.

It will be interesting to see the traditional-looking solar model in this Tank series, too. How did they make those tiny holes so the light can pass through the dial??

These holes are really invisible

You cant see the difference between the SolarBeat and the Quartz version.

I like it a lot.

I am also waiting to see one in person and try it on the wrist. Would love to add a Cartier like this
