What We Know
Cartier First Copy Watches is refreshing the Tank Américaine, one of its more modern takes on the Tank shape. No, it’s not the most modern Tank design – we see you Française – but the Américaine was introduced in 1989 in response to a trend towards larger watches.
The new-for-2023 Tank Américaine lineup includes 11 total watches across three sizes: mini, small, and large. Apparently this means we’ll have to pour one out for the medium size.
Across all sizes, the Américaine will be offered in steel and rose gold; the mini and small versions also offer a diamond-treated case. In classic Cartier Replica Store style, all will be offered on an alligator strap, and the mini and small sizes in gold will also offer an updated bracelet that’s all polished.
Like the Tank Américaine of old, the case has a combination of polished and brushed surfaces that gives the case structure and architecture. The dial on the small and mini versions is a familiar sunray finish, while the large Américaine has a vertical, satin brushed finish that I’m excited to see in person – Cartier has used this on a few watches recently, and the effect is typically quite striking, different from Cartier’s traditional dial treatments.
In short, Cartier Replica Buy Now has refined the case of the Tank Américaine by making its curved shape and brancards (sides) just a little finer and curvier. The large version also houses a new caliber 1899 MC, which Cartier says is thinner than its previous automatic movements. It shows in the case dimensions: The new large Tank Américaine is 8.6mm in thickness, down from the previous generation’s 9.5mm. The small and mini Américaine both use quartz movements.
What We Think
The Cheap Cartier Tank Américaine Replica itself is much younger than the Tank proper, introduced only in 1989, with words like “modernity” and “masculinity” used as its raison d’être. That is to say: It was a bigger, bolder take on the Tank Cintree of old, intended for an era when bigger, bolder, and apparently, American, were the things to be.
It drew on the Tank Cintree for inspiration, but instead of a curved caseback, the curved front of the Tank Américaine is anchored by a flat caseback. This gives the Tank Américaine a more modern wrist presence compared to the Cintree, where the curved caseback drapes around the wrist.
Cartier’s popularity over the past few years has been largely thanks to its small, thin dress watches, and now it’s updating the Cartier Replica Watches to better fit this mold. To be sure, the new Américaine still carries the largest profile of the Tank collection, but everything’s been slimmed down and refined just a smidge.
Perhaps because it’s a more modern take on the Tank, the Américaine continues to feel like one of the more approachable, everyday options in The Best Cartier Tank Replica Watches In The World lineup, especially in steel. This update is Cartier being Cartier: from a distance, you’d hardly notice the difference.
