Designed in 1921 as one of the earliest variations of the Swiss Cartier Replica Watches original Tank, the Cintrée translates literally as “curved Tank”, a nod to its gently arched case. Sized exactly the same as the largest vintage Tank Cintree, the latest edition is 46.3mm long, just 23mm wide and only 7.6mm high. It’s a slender but still substantial form, and striking on the wrist because of the shape.+
The Tank Cintrée is available in three guises: yellow gold Cartier Replica Watches with a champagne dial, pink gold with a black dial, and platinum with a pale grey dial.
All share the same dial design that’s familiar, but still relatively novel. It draws heavily on vintage Cartier Replica Tank Cintree watches, featuring the same railway track and Arabics at 12 and six, but with baton indices for the rest of the hours.
Between the two versions in 18k gold, the yellow gold Cintree is more unusual, and also more attractive. The Replica Watches China colours give it a vaguely vintage feel without feeling affected, though the yellow tones of the watch lack contrast with Asian skin.
All three are paired with matching alligator straps that notably have pin, or ardillon, buckles, instead of the folding clasp synonymous with Cartier Best Replica Watches China. That’s one factor that kept the retail price reasonable, though it leaves the watch feeling a little incomplete, given that the folding clasp is practically standard issue for Cartier.
