cartier roadster replica in 1917 and first offered for sale in 1922, the Cartier Tank is an iconic dress watch that since its inception, has been endlessly imitated.Legend has it that the design of the Tank was inspired by aerial photographs of Renault FT-17 tanks when Louis Cartier saw them in his daily newspaper and the first model produced was a gift for General John J. Pershing as a token of France’s appreciation for his help in ending World War I. Before the replica porsche design, most wristwatches were little more than modified pocket watches for the wrist, the Tank was the first to really be conceived with comfort and style in mind.One the most enduringly popular watch designs, its popularity is in no small part due to its distinctly refined Art deco aesthetic, something which has been present in all of its 250 plus model variations. Over time, this classic watch has graced many a famous wrist including actors, politicians and royalty. Notably John F. Kennedy wore his Tank throughout most of his term in office and that Cary Grant, an actor noted for his sartorial elegance,chose the http://www.nalumar.com/tag-heuer-aquaracer-replica-uk.html, also says something for its design.Currently, it's offered in five models: the Francaise, Americaine, Anglaise, Solo and Louis Cartier. The ultra thin Louis Cartier model offers their greatest display of craftsmanship. Originally released in 1922, it is now offered with quartz, automatic or manual movements. Switching gears for a moment, let’s consider the Cartier Tank. Nothing like the industrial sports watches mentioned above, the Cartier Tank is an icon of luxury design, with its roots dating back to 1917. The Tank watch has remained virtually unchanged in terms of design since its inception, with most changes over the years limited to being increases in case size, movements types, and finishes. Cartier still produces several variations of Tank Watches, such as the Americain, Francais, Louis Cartier, and Solo. Super early examples can command top dollar at auction, but there are plenty of models (both quartz and manual winding) produced over the last fifty years or so that are available on the secondary market for peanuts. A new Solo model in the men’s size retails for $4500 at the base level with a quartz movement and yellow gold case. A vintage equivalent can be easily found for less than half of that. It’s arguable that when it comes to luxury watches, a vintage example is even more desirable – much as a vintage Jaguar will always trump the latest model when it comes to exuding taste and class when you pull up to your next Red Carpet affair. The Cartier Tank is truly an icon of horological design, and while the layman might not notice that the piece your sporting is decades-old, you’ll know…and that’s half the appeal! http://blog.chinaunix.net/uid-29866958-id-4619388.html http://wowruler.mixxt.com/networks/blog/post.swordsmen.andy2:90 http://wowruler.mixxt.com/networks/blog/post.swordsmen.andy2:91 http://blog.chinaunix.net/uid-29866958-id-4619395.html
