Here we talk about Cartier Tank MC. Cartier Tank MC could date back to 1917. But this is the first time that Cartier Tank family has chronograph. Cartier Tank was born 1917, and it gives us a distorted feel. lines are clear and lug is like a tank caterpillar but shows a graceful lines. Four years later, Cartier Cintree is released. this watch has long and thin case, and a blue crown. Later, there are many tank edition, including Chinese Tank, Loui Cartier Tank, Frech Tank and American Tank. Every Tank watch has its bright and clear and different feature, but they still share something: rectangular dial and arc lines. Actually, Tank has long history, and Cartier Tank MC chronograph marks that Tank has its chronograph.
Now come to the case. Cartier Tank MC has a medium size, which is 34 mm of its diameter. Lug is polished and strap and surface of metal are wire drawing. This compound processing deliver a smooth case. what amaze us is that it wear comfortable even though it is not flat. At the right of the case is a chronograph button. The crown is a multi-facet crown. A rectangular sapphire mirror is set at the case back. We should know that a majority of see-through case back is round. But this brings us a fresh view.
Then come the most crucial part. The heart of a mechanical watch is the movement. Cartier Tank MC has a 1904-CH MC automatic winding movement. Plate and rotor has Cotes de Genève. What’s more, this movement has column wheels and vertical clutch on it that could simplify the manipulation. Double barrels guarantee that we will have 48 hours of power reserve. Through the crystal case back you will see that movement is brushed and polished beautifully.
Among all the Tank MC watches, the W5330003 and W5330007 are great choices for you!
