Tank Must

Small but unquestionably classic.  Really like the black dial, but honestly the strap on this one is so stiff.  Any other Must owners with a similar impression?

Maybe it loosens with use, but I would have thought Cartier would have better quality straps, unless it’s just mine.  Either way, it’s enough to switch out.

Stealthy Cartier …

Looks good Fab 🥂

Many thanks Captain, my first Cartier and I'm loving it! Its simplicity, charm, and elegance are simply superior :-)

My girlfriend had secretly been looking for my comments to Cartier posts on your forum before pulling the trigger, as she was afraid that I might not like it....glad she made such a terrific choice (she bought it at the Cartier boutique in Firenze, where ...

It is indeed a very versatile Cartier as you nicely demonstrate.

And thanks for the strap tip. I prefer to keep it black, so I’ll break this one in by wearing more often.

Looking good over there!

Your girlfriend has delightful tastes! And I adore the 5124G!

Many thanks again Everyone, and small update....since my girlfriend fell madly in love with MY Cartier (a.k.a. her gift! :-), what better solution than presenting her with an IDENTICAL one yesterday?? :-)) Here's a few shots of the twin couple! :-)

Thank you Frog and Financial Manager!

Frog and Dog make good pals! Financial Manager is probably going to ask for a nice bottle of Macallan!

Oh boy!

Your girlfriend is definitely very much like you! Sounds like a match made in heaven!

You're smart too!

I posted about this issue several weeks ago (and I got very few replies). I don’t think it’s a matter of quality it is just that they have used too much “cushioning” in the strap. Do let us know if it softens up for you.

Just looked it up. You described the issue exactly.

 By: ArmisT : December 26th, 2022-21:09
I didn’t take notice then since I just got this, but Cpt provided hope of it loosening with time. I’ll give it a chance, but it was surprising. And I didn’t realize your point about the cushioning, very helpful.

Two solution to the stiff strap: leave it on a wrapped on a watch coussin when not wearing it (like the one found in a watch box) it will help the strap take its shape…

If still too still after that can’t an after marker strap with no padding in the strap. I think some else mentionned it already, the issue is the padding in the strap. For all my aftermarket straps I never put padding

The size looks great on your wrist,

 By: Geo : December 26th, 2022-20:12
and I like to see part of the strap too. A lizard strap may not be allowed in your area, but that small pattern will look good with these smaller Tank Louis Cartier's. GEO

Looks great!

Congrats on the new watch!
