The Tank-Must is a definite must buy! ;)

A definite watch to grab to an event/office when one is in a hurry and not sure what to put on! 😉

I would agree! Thanks for commenting my friend!

Tank is always in style and looks great.

 By: enjoythemusic : January 7th, 2023-18:56
A real must-have in any deep collection imho.

Yes, do it!!

A Cartier tank will be my first Cartier also. I just don't quite have the funds to get it yet, hopefully it won't be long. Every time I get close something pops causing me to dig into the Cartier fund stash. Not sure what it is but something just draws me... 

I probably will for sure, just a question of timing

Thank you uncle Chico!

I am sure i will!

Love my Tank. Do it!

 By: cmmnsens : January 7th, 2023-22:58

For sure a Tank is in my future

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 8th, 2023-00:53

Looks great on your wrist…

But, if it were me, I would look at the Tank Louis Cartier, in part, to avoid a date window!

Good suggestion…will do a bit more research!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 8th, 2023-00:53

A must in any collection.

No worries.

I can only speak well of the Tank line my friend, my first foray into Cartier as well! I've been wearing their new Must black much of the time since Christmas (it was my gf's gift this year) and I just love it!

Horology aside, in the end --- in terms of sheer class and elegance --- it's impossible to go wrong with virtually any Cartier! ;-) Here are a few random shots of my version taken during the past couple of weeks Cheers. ...

It was my first some 15 years ago !

 By: borisundercover : January 8th, 2023-05:31
You can only enjoy it imo, such a classic way to start your Cartier journey can’t be wrong !

Thanks Boris

The Tank is a classic! A truly elegant watch…

 By: MiguelFlash : January 8th, 2023-14:24
You will not regret getting one. I love mine! ...  

Looks superb! Is this the medium or large?

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 8th, 2023-18:23


 By: MiguelFlash : January 8th, 2023-18:27
Obviously large is not very large at all but rather small. For this type of watch it’s a great size

It sure is! Very nice!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 8th, 2023-20:48

I thought large only came with a date window...

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : January 8th, 2023-22:20
Are you sure yours is not medium?

Ah thanks. I was thinking "extra" large model then...

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : January 10th, 2023-15:09

A very cool one

today my 4y old son

 By: Gabriel80 : January 8th, 2023-20:21
without me asking him, stated that when he gets big he will buy a square gold watch. My wife found it so hilarious. And I couldn't help but think of the Tank Louis.


 By: MiguelFlash : January 8th, 2023-20:29

Looks like you thought him well!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 8th, 2023-20:48

Nice Tank, although you might want to size down.

 By: neverover : January 14th, 2023-05:05
Great tank, although I find the watch is too big for your wrist. Tank was meant to be worn on the smaller side, I would go with large (25x33mm) or even small (23x30mm) that is true to vintage proportion. It just feels classier in smaller size. And because... 

I can imagine!

 By: Geo : January 14th, 2023-11:38
The new 'Must de Cartier Tanks' are indeed great looking. Just be careful with the sizes you prefer. If you look at a 'one model' smaller, the watch face will have no AUTOMATIC anymore and no date window on the dial. If this was the reason to choose, the ... 

I would definitely consider the "large" model...

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : January 14th, 2023-14:23
Simply because it has no date and the void between the date and "V" on the extra large can be bothersome (at least to me it is).

I also suggest a version with no date…

The great thing is that you can go crazy on the straps too. I just bought a solar beat (Christmas) for my wife since quartz makes it easier for her and then solar makes it nice to not have to change battery (for a long time)

I got mine!!!
