Few designs become classics. No matter the year, season or political climate, classics are always in. "Classics" like: a white oxford shirt, a sports coupe and the tank watch.
Originally designed by Cartier, who was a jeweler not (really) a watchmaker, after seeing the WWI army tanks, hence the name "Tank Watch". Up until that time it was not considered gentlemanly to wear a watch on your wrist. The simple yet strong lines and proportion of the tank watch design lend testimony to the taste of the wearer. The (nearly) square stainless steel case is 28mm wide (32mm with the crown) and 7mm thick. Its sapphire crystal protects the face while allowing you to see the large black roman numeral markers and date window. The case back is attached via 4 small screws. Water resistance is to 30m. This version has a nice design element - the hands and the tip of the crown are blue. This isn't something that you notice at first, but once you know its there your eyes keep coming back to it. The butterfly clasp completes the symmetrical design theme and secures this fine Swiss made quartz time piece to your wrist.
