In a world of Rolex and Patek Philippe consuming so much attention in the vintage world, Harry Fane comes off as a bit of an evangelist when opining about his beloved vintage AAA Cartier Replica, specifically the Tank dating between 1919 and 1965, though there are a handful of exceptions.
There is something uniquely romantic about Cartier pieces from this early era when holding and wearing them, thinking about streets in Paris from a world long gone.
A “Cartier Reverso” combines the Best Replica Cartier Tank with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso in a gold and steel piece that dates to 1947. Note that this is not the Cartier Tank Basculante, which was Cartier’s own take on the reversible dial watch in a rectangular case.
The Tank is most often associated with the rectangular case, and there are several of these at Fane’s exhibit. A Cartier Replica Tank “Gondole” from the 1970s has a stepped gold case and is quite reminiscent of the Patek Ellipse. However, a Ceinture Automatique, also from the 1970s, has a “belt buckle” case shape with crown protector that I can’t help but love largely due to the fact that it’s in white gold, which you don’t see often.
