Tank Normale in YG

Sep 14, 2023,21:35 PM

Extremely well finished…Matt finish through and the sapphire is designed to give the vintage effect

LE of 200 pcs on leather strap in each metal, YG and Platinum !

I also happened to see the bracelet version.

In general i don’t like bracelets but here the way the bracelet is finished is delightful - Brushed finish all through case & bracelet!

LE of 100 pcs in YG (and 100 in Pt)

Both are a tad overpriced imho but then, it is Cartier!

Geo, we love you and we miss you. ...  

Actually, I was making a bad 'one jewel' joke...

...as in 'I hope the movement has more than one jewel.' : )

Cartier pedigree is more design I suppose!

I confirm it is a great book definitely !

I am inclined to buy one. Its stated to be not water resistant watch. What that means? I thought 30m is modern minimum..

It is okay to wear as we do with a dress watch with 30mm WR or its more delicate and needs extra care? Regards

honestly I have no idea...

but what I can say - the only timepiece I considered WR in Cartier are Santos & Pasha, rest I would treat them with lot of consideration as pure dress timepieces...

Still they state them to be 30m WR in all other models.

I guess there should be some explanation/logic behind these CPCP editions. It may be something to do with the heritage part, being true to the original ones? Now if they're really without any water ressence, these beauties are not good to be worn in norma... 

I was allocated one with the leather but ...

Size is too small (relative) and movement is mediocre but I know, the shape, design, classic, blah blah...... Somehow, I just can't justify it, probably pocket not deep enough....but I do feel a bit like "Emperor's new clothes" phenomenon with Cartier as ... 

I do agree & exactly what I mentioned above, the pricing is quite high...

at the same time, I do believe the bracelet finish is quite impeccable IMHO
